FILE - In this Feb. 12, 2013, file photo, President Barack Obama gestures as he gives his State of the Union address during a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington. When Obama delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday, he isn’t just setting out his own agenda. He’s also delivering an opening salvo in the yearlong fight for control of Congress.

Obama has turned his attention in the second term to what government can do to increase social mobility and reduce income inequality. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
