Maybe Obama can get back those billions that were awarded to his campaign bundlers who spent the money and then declared bankruptcy? Now in the middle of the biggest increase in National Debt in US history, and his sequestration cuts, he wants more money to give to his campaign bundlers?
From Yahoo News:
After three days of meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, President Obama is shifting gears today, venturing outside the Beltway to deliver the first energy speech of his second term, one that will promote research into fossil fuel alternatives.
The president will promote his “all-of-the-above” energy strategy and plan to reduce the nation’s dependence on oil during a visit to the research facilities at Argonne National Laboratory outside Chicago in Argonne, Ill.
Obama is calling on Congress to establish a new Energy Security Trust, urging them to set aside $2 billion over ten years to support research into “cost-effective technologies.”
According to the White House, the trust is “designed to invest in breakthrough research that will make the technologies of the future cheaper and better – technologies that will protect American families from spikes in gas prices and allow us to run our cars and trucks on electricity or homegrown fuels.”
