US State of the Union address 2015

Editor's note: In the State of the Union, President Obama said that the unemployment rate is lower than it was before the financial crisis. The New York Times reports that the statement is true if the crisis is dated to fall 2008, when the unemployment rate was 6.1%. However, many accounts say the crisis began as early as the summer of 2007, when the rate was 4.6%. The current unemployment rate is 5.6%. - Stephanie
