Reality Check: The state of our union, by the numbers

(FOX19) -

Tuesday night, President Obama talked about the state of the country. He touched on unemployment and he talked about how he wants to change things in Washington, by making the rich pay their fair share.

The President seemed to be very focused on the numbers when it comes to Warren Buffett's secretary and the gap between rich and poor.

There are some numbers he didn't touch.

We take a look at the state of our Union, by the numbers.

It's a Reality Check you won't see anywhere else.
