Edit: Since the live stream is down, I've embedded a recording of the speech. I wanted to add two things to that. First, this just the policies version of the speech, with all the silly pandering and applause cut out, leaving just the concrete policy proposals.
Second, my general reaction. What ever happened to tax simplification? Why is it that every major policy goal is to be accomplished by tax breaks? Tax breaks for bringing jobs back to the US, tax penalties for removing jobs. Tax breaks for hiring veterans, tax breaks for manufacturing, tax breaks for small businesses, tax breaks for tuition, penalties for millionaires and billionaires, tax breaks for clean energy... seriously, people, it's a bit ridiculous. Can we really expect to tweak the economy any way we please by giving tax breaks to anyone and everyone?
Overall, I liked some of the more confrontational elements in the speech (like his proposal to remove subsidies from oil producers), but I'm disappointed to realize that it's just red meat for the base. Congress won't pass 95% of this agenda, certainly not in an election year, and likely not after one, either, so it's just so much hot air.
