In a letter sent Friday, Boehner says the country faces immense challenges, and Americans expect the Congress and White House to work together on solutions. Boehner says cooperation will require, quote, a “willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership.”

The Ohio Republican says the president can present his plan and specific solutions at a joint session of Congress in the House chamber.

Last year, Obama delivered the State of the Union speech on Jan. 24.

Why bother with a State of the Union? We know what we're in for in the next for years & if Obama & Serrano get their way, we'll have Obama for as long as the stupid voters keep getting free stuff from him. Of course, eventually, elections themselves will also be eliminated.
