State of the Union: Second Annual "Price the Proposals" Contest

by Douglas Kellogg / /


On Tuesday, February 12th, President Barack Obama will deliver his 2013 State of the Union Address (SOTU) to Congress. In this speech, the President will have the opportunity to tell the nation what his policy priorities will be as he takes office for his second term. How much will his renewed agenda cost taxpayers?

Play “Price the Proposals,” NTU’s “Price is Right”-style game, and win prizes if you can answer that question!

Each year, the National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF) tallies an estimated cost of the President’s State of the Union speech…

Predict what you think the total cost of the President’s SOTU proposals will be, submit your entry below, and if your guess is one of the closest to NTUF’s assessment, we’ll send you a prize!

The top predictions will win a $50 iTunes Gift Card, or a signed copy of Steve Forbes’ The Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets Are Moral and Big Government Isn’t. 

Don’t forget: Join NTU, NTUF, and your fellow taxpayers online for conversation and insight during the speech.
