What do you think about the state of the Union?

"I really don't think anything is going to change. I know Obama came in with a mess, but I don't think it has gotten better. But I wish for the best."

-Marc and Tracy Lira, Victoria, mechanics

"I think unemployment is still kind of high and hopefully the economy will get better this year. I think things are starting to look up."

-Danny Cantu, Edinburg, gas industry

"I think the state of the Union right now is in flux and uncertainty because no one can come to a decision to get the economy going."

-Craig Salter, Victoria, oil services
