THE PRESIDENT’S PLAN FOR A STRONG MIDDLE CLASS & A STRONG AMERICA…includes fatherhood and healthy marriage
President Obama used his State of the Union address last night to reiterate his commitment to support fathers and families.
And we’ll work to strengthen families by removing the financial deterrents to marriage for low-income couples, and doing more to encourage fatherhood, because what makes you a man isn’t the ability to conceive a child; it?s having the courage to raise one. Stronger families. Stronger communities. A stronger America. It is this kind of prosperity, broad, shared, and built on a thriving middle class that has always been the source of our progress at home.
Barack Obama, President
