What Do You Want President Obama To Say About The Economy Tonight?

As President Obama gears up for his State of the Union tonight, speculation is growing about exactly what he'll say about jobs and the economy. This morning White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told CBS's "The Early Show, " to expect two-thirds of the speech to be devoted to economic issues, such as tax credits for small businesses.

Specifically the WSJ says Mr. Obama "will call for eliminating capital-gains taxes on investments in small businesses" and will "call for extending bigger tax breaks to those that purchase new facilities and equipment."

In a recent poll conducted by NPR, 46 percent of you said the economy and jobs are the issue you want the president and Congress to be paying attention to right now. So what do you want to hear tonight?
