Obama Wants Action on Energy

Stimulus plan calls for more fuel-efficient federal vehicles, but critics call it pork.

President Obama today signed a presidential memorandum requesting the Department Of Energy to set higher efficiency standards for everyday household appliances. He spoke at the Energy Department to an audience of about 220 staffers.

Mr. Obama also spent several minutes speaking about the importance of producing more fuel-efficient vehicles, including plug-in hybrids.

“Through investments in our mass transit system to boost capacity, in our roads to reduce congestion, and in technologies that will accelerate the development of innovations like plug-in hybrid vehicles, we’ll be making a significant down payment on a cleaner and more energy independent future.

“Now, I read the other day that critics of this plan ridiculed our notion that we should use part of the money to modernize the entire fleet of federal vehicles to take advantage of state of the art fuel efficiency. This is what they call pork. You know the truth. It will not only save the government significant money over time, it will not only create manufacturing jobs for folks who are making these cars, it will set a standard for private industry to match. And so when you hear these attacks deriding something of such obvious importance as this, you have to ask yourself: are these folks serious? Is it any wonder that we haven’t had a real energy policy in this country?

“For the last few years, I’ve talked about these issues with Americans from one end of this country to another. And Washington may not be ready to get serious about energy independence, but I am. And so are you. And so are the American people.”

“Inaction is not an option that is acceptable to me and it’s certainly not acceptable to the American people—not on energy, not on the economy, not at this critical moment.”

President Obama then called on Congress to “rise to this moment.” He reiterated that the scale and approach of his energy proposals are required to lead America toward energy independence and economic recovery.

    Sounds good to me.

    Wow! I’m still not used to a president who can speak in complete sentences and articulate a coherent thought. All without lying thru his teeth. What a country. LOL!

    Hey, I feel hope again for us, our planet and the world. Obama doesn’t have much time though. If China should become the world’s next leading economy by 2020, the standards by which a civilized world will go on might not be set on time to show results and become a lever in foreign policy like human rights are now. Governments who have traditions in oppression will most likely not care about the rest of the world, pollution and health. Sorry, this is a hybrid site, not a political one. Lets hope we’ll see more energy efficient vehicles, household devices and systems in the near future.

    A comment to 9691
    While it is true at some point the Chinese may eclipse the U.S. economy there are some huge problems in China at some point it will come out. China is somewhat a exporter of goods and services they are not like the U.S w/c is a consumption economy w/o little saving. As standard of living raises also the divisions or gaps b/t poor and rich also people will expect more want more mobility and consume more. So to your comments if China remains a quansi communist country I’m not sure I can agree with all of your comments.

    As for the article a couple days ago I looked at the Republicans waste list on CNN.com and the plan to spend money retro fitting gov. buildings and the government using money for hybrids was on their list. The type of attitudes by some Republicans is shameful that is on the environment to score points in a reelection bid in a few years. Too bad this topic is still used to divide people or help special interests you would think in the last ten years we all would have learned a few things, guess not..

    Do not block Plug-in tax credits! Please help and notify your elected officials…

    Last fall Congress approved consumer tax credits of up to $7500 for plug-in electric cars. Unfortunately the lawmakers left out the most affordable and available plug-in hybrid solution: Plug-in hybrid conversions.

    This year Plug In America and a team of entrepreneurial plug-in vehicle companies has worked with Senators Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), John Kerry (D-MA), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Bill Nelson (D-FL) to get critical plug-in vehicle tax credit language into the upcoming stimulus bill. We are very close to success.

    But now our efforts are threatened – we hear that the consumer tax credits for plug-in hybrid conversions may get removed from the stimulus bill.

    We need your help – we will do most of the work. Please take just a moment to click through the link below and send a strong message to your representatives in Congress and the President telling them that you want plug-in electric vehicles to be successful along with the truly green jobs they can create. Show Washington just how serious you are about wanting affordable plug-in vehicles on the road now:

    It is time to ask Congress to advance the next generation of transportation options. Each and every voice they hear will make a difference.

    Let us do the work for you – Just click the link below and in less than a minute you can get your message to Congress about this key issue:

    @Boom Boom: What a stupid post.

    So, if someone disagrees with the policy, he’s automatically a racist dittohead? What a dreary little world must live inside your head.

  • AP

    Hopefully President Obama doesn’t use up all his political capital on this stimulus/pork bill. There are plenty of projects in it that will have no effect until 2 years from now, which may be pouring gasoline on a fire if the economy recovers before then.

    I am very concerned that he cannot get a bill through a Democratic Congress with large majorities. He only needs one Republican vote in the Senate to get a bill through if he can keep all the Democrats together, and more than one Republican senator will vote for it. So it isn’t a matter of Republicans obstructing the bill, but a matter of the Democrats not being able to put a bill together that they can all agree on enough to vote for it.

    It isn’t good for anyone if he comes out of this already weakened, but I’ve seen members of the press questioning him that never did during the campaign. I would not be surprised to see CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC turn on him soon (I think he has MSNBC locked up, though). Unfortunately, they should have been a little more diligent before the election rather than now.

  • Samie

    AP it is true to say some Democrats are trying to add dumb things into the bill but some Republicans are trying to score points too. While there is some “pork” in this package I don’t see some of the environmental measures as pork. Some in congress are mad b/c they want to add special protects for their constituents or to help their special interests groups. Some Republicans are trying to block or seriously alter this bill w/ their own alt. bill. Tax cuts vs government spending to increase job growth and actually how much time it would take to spend the money are some major concerns. What people don’t realize is that takes more than just 1 year or two quarters of growth to fully get out of our current recession So while there is some spending that would run for say 2-3 yrs its not as wasteful as one may think…
    Oh one last though AP many of the Democrats know who got them elected so I doubt they would bolt against Obama if it came down to a power struggle.

  • Boom Boom

    I think that the actions around this bill are showing that Obama truly is trying to get a consensus on the bill. The GOP in congress is taking a no compromise approach. The fact that he is getting no extra votes for it simply means that the GOP has found it’s party loyalty. The Dems are equally unified. The GOP sees that it is to Obama’s advantage to work together, since that makes Obama look like he’s achieving his goals of removing partisanship, so they’re pushing for gridlock. I think that, in the end, if this bill gets held up for weeks because of a lack of consensus, it will be just a damaging to the GOP in Congress as to Obama. I hope that doesn’t happen.

  • Boom Boom

    I’m waiting for the venom-filled Ditto-head posts that occur anytime the word “Obama” get’s in a title. Perhaps we’ll hear more questions about our president’s racial background, communist heritage, or Clinton associations…

    I hope all this talk gets translated into actions. Congress seems to be making that rather hard….

  • Boom Boom

    RandalH,
    Your angry response to an imagined comment kind of proves my point. If you actually read what I said, I didn’t say anything of the sort. You’re jumping to conclusions which have no basis.

    What I am referring to, is that the last two or three times an article was posted with Obama’s name in the title, every third post was random post attacking, among other things, Obama’s “blackness”. Many of them were removed by the editors, so you may have missed them. I’m all for disagreement.

  • Jessee McBroom

    I for one give President Obama 2 thumbs up on this one. Maybe if we all just boycott the big 3 until they actually start taking PIH and HEV seriously they would comply with public desire and demand.

  • Lost Prius to wife

    AP, I agree with you on the possibility of President Obama using up all his political capital. With the economy in such “great” shape, the press is definitely going to hold his “feet to the fire”. Hopefully the reason the stimulus bill is taking longer is because the Senate, on a whole, is arguing for more stimulus and less pork (I am not naiveté; there is no way to get all the pork out with that many Senators’ “fingers” in the “pie”). That could allow for a long battle with both the Republicans and the Democrats, both between and within the parties. And I agree that if he can keep the Democrats together, more than one Republican senator will vote for the stimulus bill.

    But he still seems to be able to rally the people. I think if the stimulus bill should start taking too long, President Obama may call on the people to hurry Congress along. He may become one of a few Presidents that relies on the fact that it is a government “for the people”, not the corporations.

    I was once told by my macro economics professor that the scarcest resource in the world was good management. Way back then, I doubted him; but I now know just how right he was. How many stories have we heard of gross misspending and massive golden parachutes? Golden parachutes that actually paid more than the person would have actual earned working the full term of their contract. How many companies have cut their executives’ salaries and bonuses in poor times to keep workers employed? Not all management is “bad”, but enough to keep the economy from recovering as fast as it could. In most countries outside the US, the CEO, in general, only makes 30X to 50X* the lowest employee’s wages. I have heard that CEOs in the US earn an average of 85X* the lowest employee’s wages with some even earning 100X and 200X*. (*These figures change up and down over periods of time and are true only in general.)

    I feel President Obama will be a good leader and manager of the country. But President Obama can not control corporations, nor would he want to. That responsibility falls on to the stockholders, many of which do not exercise that responsibility or right (just like many voters).

    Therefore he is left with trying to stimulate economy through credits, reimbursements, etc. (the stimulus bill). I think President Obama is satisfied at the debating, but not the time that it is taking. I think we all know that the economy will not start recovering until the stimulus bill does pass. And it will take at least until the end of the year before it stops falling and starts climbing out of the economic hole we are in. And my bet is that it will be a slow economic climb for 3 to 5 years after this year before anything gets close to being “normal”.

    President Obama has to start on his energy policy. And including some of that policy in the stimulus bill only makes sense. Credits and reimbursements for energy savings and gas savings only make sense since this will help sell new products that translate into jobs. This is why credits and reimbursements for hybrid cars and electric cars are so important. Car manufacturing is a major part of this nation’s industry. When someone buys a car, they pay for a lot of people’s wages. President Obama wants those cars to make us less dependent on oil, both foreign and domestic, along with stimulating the economy.

    And for anyone that thinks I am a President Obama fan, my presidential candidate was knock out of the race early in the primaries. President Obama knows how to talk well; now we will see if he can “walk the talk”. If it comes down to management (choosing the right person for the right job) and integrity, so far he is doing fairly well.

  • RandalH

    @Boom Boom: Sorry, I don’t buy it. You were clumsily attempting to practice a form of neo-censorship by casting dissenting opinion as “hate” or “racist” speech in order to discredit it before it is even spoken. The only people I see commenting on Obama’s race are those who are like minded to you. The irony is that such exploitation is itself racist.

  • AP

    Lost Prius to Wife, I hope you’re right (that he can hold his reputation together), because he has many tasks on his plate. As near as I can figure, the reason corporations pay executives as much as they do is that they can. Let’s face it; the whole salary structure in the US is out of whack when we criticize someone who makes $20M/year running a large company, but applaud Shaq for making $30M/year playing basketball. Everything is based on what someone else might pay the person you are trying to keep. However, when that person is running a bank into the ground, I would think that you shouldn’t be trying to keep them, anyway.

    Note that the car CEO’s are already working for $1/year.

    As for comments that the Republicans shouldn’t propose a bill of their own, I believe that’s exactly what they should do. They shouldn’t criticize unless they have a better idea, which they are doing. It would have been better still if the Democrats had consulted at all with the Republicans before presenting the bill. From what I understand, Pelosi and Reid don’t even take advice from many Democrats – much less Republicans. I think the country would be much better off without such closed-minded leaders in Congress.

  • AP

    RandalH, I agree that I hear might more race-baiting from the left side of the aisle (I’m in the middle – conservative-leaning). I’ve heard people accuse Limbaugh and Hannity, for instance, of being racist. But I’ve listened to them, and what they preach is responsibility for your actions and an equal chance at success, regardless of race, creed, or color. That shouldn’t be construed as racist.

    The fact that we have a black president should not be controversial or amazing, and I hope people didn’t vote for (or against) him just because of his race. But this also means that he should not get special treatment from the press, because that somehow implies that he needs it.

    My bet, though, is that the press will turn on him – not because of his race, but because he isn’t perfect (since no one is). Once anything starts going wrong, I am afraid they’ll jump off his bandwagon, and belatedly dig into every nook and cranny of his life. I hope I’m wrong, but the only thing the media likes to do more than build someone up is to then tear them down. It must give them a power rush.

  • Samie

    AP said: (also to RandalH’s comments)
    “I’ve heard people accuse Limbaugh and Hannity, for instance, of being racist. But I’ve listened to them, and what they preach is responsibility for your actions and an equal chance at success, regardless of race, creed, or color.”

    Hannity is an idiot plan and simple, talking point all the way with no ideas of his own, just lesson to a Conservative Radio Station for one day on a long drive the same talking points are recycled including the local idiot someone hands these guys things to say each day.

    As for Limbaugh how can you say such things when he was cheering on that racist song about Obama oh I’m sorry wink wink nod nod non racist song. Limbaugh said “I hope Obama fails”, you say he gives equal chances??? He does the same kind of stuff with gay women, environmentalists and talks down anyone who he believes is wrong. Both these people you mention are just talking heads to try to get people to subscribe into narrow minded ideologies w/c I know you don’t believe in b/c of your idea w/ the Gasoline Tax. But make no mistakes Liberal radio stations do the same thing in trying to push people into believing everything they want them to believe…. The point is their only purpose is to divide people and get people to agree with these narrow ideas even if it is against someones ideals or self interests or say being a idiot and voting straight party lines.

    Also what is different from what the Republicans are saying and what they wanted the last 8 years? Tax cuts Tax cuts w/ being a crusader sound that bell for political points as being somehow now fighting gov. “pork” or waste all of a sudden w/c that may include things that may better our environment, that’s whats on their list so not sure I’m all cheery about some of the things they are calling waste w/c they want out of the bill.

  • Boom Boom

    RandalH,
    You don’t have to buy it. It is a fact that the last time that an article about Obama was put up on this site, there were multiple posts in the comments that said that Obama wasn’t really “black” and that he was a communist. They didn’t address the article, just attacked Obama. Luckily, this site has moderators who are willing to remove such posts when they’re reported. I only brought up his race in that context.

    You clearly can’t read, since if you read my original post, I never say or imply that dissenting opinion is racist. I wondered how many crazy posts we’d get about Obama. I disagree with AP regularly but have never called him prejudiced or even said he lived in a dreary world. I disagree with his post above, but don’t think for a second that we differ because of racism. AP actually reads the articles and comments on them.

    I’ve seen your posts before and they’re always belligerent, self-righteous and insulting. So I’m not really surprised that you are spouting off about things with out much of a clue at all.

  • Boom Boom

    As for Samie’s comments, you took the words right out of my mouth pal. Limbaugh is a bigot and a racist. There are plenty of republicans and conservatives who are not, but they don’t support Limbaugh either. The true conservatives in this country wisely distance themselves from him.

  • GR

    This is why I voted for Obama.

    Well, this reason among many others.

  • AP

    Rush Limbaugh hopes President Obama’s policies fail because Obama is a liberal, not because he is black. He did the same for Clinton (who is white). I don’t agree with Limbaugh – I don’t want to see Obama fail, because he is our president. I only hope he doesn’t go overboard with liberal policies.

    Limbaugh’s song parodying “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” was inspired by an African-American writer for the LA times, who called Obama the epiphet in Limbaugh’s song. It’s a double standard to criticize Limibaugh for using it and not to criticize the originator of the name. I believe he is trying to point that out by using it.

    I really do think that conservatives are less racist than liberals, because conservatives believe everyone is capable of making it on their own. Liberals are always painting conservatives as racist, but I see very little from conservatives I know. I work with people from all races and countries, and we all get along on skill and determination.

    To me, being for affirmative action is somehow assuming that African-Americans are not as capable, which I don’t believe. The government has become the “father” for far too many in Detroit, for example. I hope that President Obama can use his unique background to help this, not so much with cash, but with inspiration, focus, and goals.

    Since I lean conservative, I do think a lot of what Limbaugh says is right. But I don’t like his double-standards when it comes to making excuses for conservatives who commit the same “sins” that liberals do. His argument that “global warming can’t be man-made because we would be arrogant to think that we could affect the planet” is stupid, though I have to say from the evidence I’ve seen, that the evidence is still spotty.

    That said, I don’t care whether global warming exists or not, because either way, we need to do more to conserve energy resources. We are stewards of this planet (a Christian value that Limbaugh conveniently forgets), and our country must reduce its political dependency on unstable nations. Personally, I think that’s why Obama is soft-peddling the “global warming” issue right now. Take away that talking point, and the other side cannot argue against you. Use the things both sides can agree on.

    I also don’t agree with Limbaugh that the “free market” does the best job in every case. For the most part it does, but with petroleum, which is really a strategic resource, it fails. Uncertainty in its price kills the certainty of profits for small cars from domestic manufacturers (one of which I work for). For me, a higher fuel tax (to reduce price volatility) is necessary to not only help the US become more politically free, but to save the auto industry.

    I agree that Sean Hannity is an idiot, but he is also not racist. At least he realizes that very few of us are here by heritage and that we all have to get by using our own skills and hard work. He also points out that we have to reward people who take risks to better things, which is anti-socialism. He is right that Americans are becoming so afraid of taking risks that it is stifling our creativity and innovation.

    I listen to both ends of the spectrum, and don’t agree with everything from either side. But it pays to hear both of them so that when you hear them mis-characterized, you know it. There are also some good ideas from both, which we shouldn’t discount just because of the source. We need to be pragmatic.

    I agree that the last 8 years weren’t good for the US, but it wasn’t because of too much conservatism. Bush was not a fiscal conservative at all, except for reducing taxes. He allowed way too much spending, probably making a deal with the Democrats that he would allow the spending as long as they funded his wars (much like Reagan did with SDI). That, and too much easy credit set us up for disaster.

  • WompaStompa

    I hope Limbaugh’s heart fails.

  • Bryce

    Good luck to Obama on this one, but the Democrats biggest opponent in the past, and perhaps in the future, often seems to be themselves. They can never seem to agree amongst themselves, let alone bring on board the opposition. There is one thing the Republicans always had going for them, relative solidarity.

  • Boom Boom

    Yeah, they’ve always followed their president when the hard decisions needed to be made. Like when 2/3rds of the Republicans in the house voted against Bush’s bank bailout. That was serious solidarity…..

  • TRACY COSTILOW

    I wish he would start by using solar energy to power government offices and public schools, at least those in the best locations (for sun) in the south. Government offices and schools are mainly used during daylight hours! The weekends (and summers for schools), can provide a much needed clean energy boost to the economy, and make solar a less expensive option for the public to purchase!

  • Bryce

    :)

    First term

    good point though

  • Wang

    The American people trust that Barack Obama shall effectively address energy issues.

    LONG LIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA!

    Obama is a racial-minority individual and does not like racism:

    There is bad news about George Herbert Walker Bush.

    What if basically all racial-minority people would subscribe to the interpretations that George Herbert Walker Bush committed monstrous, racist, hate crimes while he was the President of the United States?

    It will eventually come out: it is only a matter of time.

    Agha Dilbar

    My Open Letter (Blog) has been sent Eight Lak (800000) to International Community for the welfare of Humanity till today. I Agha Dilbar authorize Newspapers, Magazines, Internet, to Publish and Radio, T.V. Channels to broadcast this letter all round the World.
    Website: http://aghadilbar.webs.com
    Dear President Barrack Obama
    the Great Leader of the World
    I Agha Dilbar have sent Mr. President 100 registered research Letters (1000 new ideas to develop America and to Change the World for Peace and Prosperity)
    Through Embassy of USA Islamabad till today and also direct sent these registered Letters to Whitehouse Washington DC 20500.These letters have been written on the guidelines of CHANGE WE NEED. And these letters are about the Common Men Problems of respected American Peoples and their Solutions. To end, Economic Recession, Unemployment and to Finish War, all round the World for Peace and Prosperity. In these letters I have sent one thousand new scientific Planning /Suggestions, about every walk of life for Peace through Friendship Progress and Prosperity all over the World.
    My dear Barack Obama, the great leader of the world, my friend, my brother, provide an opportunity to Agha Dilbar to pay an official visit to America, that we two brothers sit together and by halt this horrible war. if this war continues for 10 20 or 50 –year, it will never end.
    In this war 1-million people have died from 9/11 till today, if this war continues, it will become the 111- World War.200-Million people would die, if 111-World War is triggered) can take out 6.5 billion people of the World from abyss of destruction .We two brothers Barack Obama+ Agha Dillbar can put them on the road to Progress and Prosperity through Peace.
    Dear President Barrack Obama considers, from 9/11 till today, America has conducted many war operations in connection with War on Terror, resulting the circle of war has spread hundred times. Millions innocent persons have died.
    In this war. Many have been rendered homeless. One Lak (10000) war affected youth joined the army of Al-Qaida and Talban by the help of anti American countries have begun gorilla war in a horrible manner. It is the result of wrong war strategy. I Agha Dilbar desire to solve all above mentioned problems in a meeting with President Barrack Obama by adopting new revolutionary planning by bringing an end to present gorilla war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. As a result the World can enter in a peaceful, advanced and progressive world, May it be so!
    I Agha Dilbar have a new War Strategy to achieve success through Table Talk between Talban, Pakistan and American Gov. 90% of Talban that are fighting against Pak Army belong to Swat and Tribal Areas of NWFP. I can provide America all realistic facts in such manner that their implementation could convert these Talban into Patriotic Citizens of Pakistan.
    In this War Strategy Pakistan Gov will never send his Heavy Artillery, Tanks, Cannons and Air craft in war. In this way 5-million persons will never Displaced. In the end Talban by their will handover, their Weapons to Pakistan Gov, they will come to Table Talk and Suicide Bombing will come to an end in Pakistan. Through this War Strategy Pakistani and American Gov can save expenses on war. Through this planning American and Pakistani Gov can utilize their saving on war budgets for development of Schools, Hospitals, Colonies, Markets, Industry, Roads, Bridges, Dams, Canals of Swat and Tribal Areas of NWFP that are war affected.
    Due to wrong war strategies of the American and NATO forces.
    The war on terror is getting worst mainly due to use of air craft, tanks, Cannons.
    Because nine innocent people are killed for a single terrorist this way in these circumstances thousands
    of innocent people lose their life or properties and any other source of income.
    In the result many people join terrorist or become suicide bomber. As they think there is no other way to take revenge of the innocents killing of their relatives these are the basic reasons that hundreds of suicides are generated very quickly and easily in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq particularly who further kill thousands of other innocent public.
    On account of present war strategy, Billion Dollars are being wasted yearly.
    This war can cause Fall of America instead of continuation of war; my best suggestion for America must keep his Supper Power on the World and should conquer the World instead of war, but by his No-1 scientific technology spending on agriculture, industry, trade, education, scientific development and tourism, all round the World. Making an end to Economic Crisis in America.
    A new Global Package is being offered for your kind consideration America will have to make complete and final announcement that in future all Multinational American Companies will get free land on 20-years lease and will set up under the BOOT agreement (in undeveloped and poor countries) factories, mills five star hotels, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, air companies, shipping companies, latest railway, bus transport and steel mills. All these companies will be bound to handover without any cost to under developed and poor countries well as their machinery and transport after 20-yaars.
    A new suggestion in connection with Global Peace is offered that in return of export American Agriculture and Industrial Products, will give his 50% profit to the exporting countries and utilize as Aid on the development of agriculture, industry, trade, education and tourism. This suggestion, making an end to American Economic Crisis and get full support to enhance his Foreign Public Relation
    . May it be so!
    To make successful American Foreign Policy at Global Level the following planning is put before:
    a) America will have to provide free scholar ships at least to ten top master students (in each country) of medical and science in underdeveloped and poor countries of the world.
    b) Highly educated and well trained one hundred cultural groups (each group contains 100 persons) will have to arrange one hundred cultural shows for three months in big cities of underdeveloped and poor countries.
    c) America will have to arrange exhibitions through his Embassies for his latest products, in the underdeveloped and poor countries .All these mentioned above industrial exhibitions will be arranged continuously for two months. In the above mentioned exhibitions present products will be sold except export order booking. In these exhibitions, American Cultural Programs will have to arrange and American Traditional Dishes will be kept for sale. In these exhibitions American Tourism Stalls will also be put-up.
    Following rules and regulations will be undertaken for the progress and prosperity of American students.
    a) Among metric, Fsc, Bsc, (eng} .Mbbs, Llb, Ca and diploma holders in all institutions, all those receiving degrees at the state level, ten each from girls and boys by cash prizes will be announced on behalf of the gov during invitation on lunch.
    b) For above mentioned top ten intelligent students boys and girls each, tours for different historical and healthy sites will be arranged free of cast.
    c) Sport Talent Schools of international level will be set up over the country at the district level, in which students of extra-ordinary sports talent taught from class one to Fsc level.
    d) American states gov will announce free transport, free medical facilities and free lunch during education to all school, college and university students.

    Minimize the aforesaid differences, which I will deliver to president
    the increasing distress and hatred between the Muslim world and America is the major cause of weak relationship on public and government level.
    As a sincere friend I have practical suggestions to Barack Obama in my official visit to America.
    I request the government of America to allow me to describe (first of all my briefing with president’s advisors). My one thousand plans & ideas for changing the world before one to one meeting with the president Barack obama.thanks
    Today we are presenting a new planning in America for the rapid progress in industry.

    American government will allow to 50% relief in the following things. Petrol, dizel, electricity,
    gas and water bills

    For the establishment of new industries in industrial zone American government will allow 25%relief in taxes .
