This was the first speech delivered to a Republican-controlled Congress since 1954. This was also the first time a Republican Speaker sat in the chair since 1954. The Speaker was Newt Gingrich of Georgia. The president discussed his proposals of a New Covenant vision for a smaller government and proposing tax reductions. The president also discussed crime, the Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, illegal immigration, and the minimum wage. Regarding foreign policy, he urged assistance in Mexico’s economic crisis, additional disarmament in cooperation with Russia and other international treaties, stopping North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, legislation to fight terrorists, and peace between Israel and its neighbors.
