ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Obama says 2015 is about "America's comeback" and he wants to "make sure that every American feels that they're a part of our country's comeback." During his weekly address, Obama talked about his upcoming State of the Union address. "Every day, we get thousands of letters and emails at the White House from Americans across the country - and every night, I read ten of them. They tell me about their hopes and their worries, their hardships and successes. They're the Americans I'm working for every day - and this year, several of these letter writers will join me at the Capitol when I deliver my annual State of the Union Address on Tuesday night," Obama said. He says his speech will focus on "how to build on our momentum, with rising wages, growing incomes, and a stronger middle class." Obama is calling on the new Congress to work with him to deliver results for the American people.
