    With a stack of problems to solve, President Barack Obama is prepping for his first State of the Union address.
     
    Many people are getting frustrated while waiting for the change President Obama promised upon his election. In tonight’s highly-anticipated speech, the Commander-in-Chief will make efforts to fill the tall order he wrote on the campaign trial.
     
    A source familiar with the speech told the Associated Press that jobs specifically will be a big focus during the State of the Union address. Reportedly two-thirds of the address will be about the economy as he’ll be speaking on his ideas for job growth and getting the national budget under control.

     
    Specifically, the president will propose a three-year spending freeze to congress and ask it pass another economic stimulus package. The debt-backed measure is supposed to provide some financial relief to the middle class.

     
    Supposedly President Obama will make a concerted effort in his address to show constituents that he is well aware of their problems to make ends meet while banks and business keep getting bailouts.
     
    Then there’s the health care problem. Even though Democrats control all three branches of government, enacting health care reform has been a painful struggle. Tonight, the president will seek to bring Democrats together on this urgent issue, The Huffington Post reports.

    He’ll also repeat his call for a “comprehensive” reform package, which he proposed months ago that included a form of universal health care.
     
    To see what else President Obama has to say, tune into the State of the Union Address airing tonight on most major networks at 9 p.m. EST.
