President Obama's State of the Union address, his first with a Republican-controlled House, centered on the economy and cutting the unemployment rate of 9.4 percent.

"Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans' paychecks are a little bigger today," Obama said. "Every business can write off the full cost of the new investments they make this year. These steps, taken by Democrats and Republicans, will grow the economy and add to the more than one million private sector jobs created last year."

Obama also urged Americans to participate in a more civil discourse.

"New laws will only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans," the president said. "We will move forward together, or not at all -- for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics."

Our question to you today: What did you think of President Obama's address?
