Episode Description 
President Obama’s State of the Union address last night made one thing clear: the financial sector has been a pretty severe disappointment to the American economy. The President said, “No bailouts, no handouts, no cop-outs,” aimed, in part, at banks. He praised companies like General Motors and Master Lock as examples of the country's potential. Memo received, Mr. President: Manufacturing is going to get us out of the economic hole the banks dug for us. The Daily Pulse is up today on news that U.S. students will be eating healthier school lunches moving forward. The USDA announced new menu guidelines today that include more fruit, veggies and whole grains.
