WASHINGTON — President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union Address tonight, asking a dramatically more hostile Congress for even more spending on what he calls “investments.”

The White House refused yesterday to reveal specifics about the proposed new spending, but Republican congressional leaders expressed concern about the notion of piling more debt on the current historic level of red ink.

“To me, ‘investment’ that comes from Washington is [a] code word for more spending,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said yesterday.

“I think that is anathema not only to most families and small businesses, but anathema to what is going on at the state levels, for sure, and what most people think Washington should be about,” he said.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs dodged several attempts by reporters yesterday to glean specifics about the new spending, but said generally that the speech would also call for new deficit-reduction measures.
