President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address 2012 on Tuesday night and a live stream is available online. 

The State of the Union Address will be delivered on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 9 p.m. EST in the chamber of the United States House of Representatives. The theme is, America Built to Last. 

The State of the Union Address invitation came from House Speaker John Boehner, per tradition. Boehner, a Republican, said the Democratic president was welcomed to appear in the House so congressional leaders could hear about his new ideas for working with Congress.

This will be Obama's third State of the Union Address, and he is expected to focus his message on job creation and efforts by the federal government to stimulate the struggling economy and reduce growing economic inequality.

-- Additional tax breaks for companies that bring back jobs to the United States

-- More clean energy incentives

-- Enhanced education and job-training initiatives, especially for high school graduates seeking technical degrees
