    1. To recover the rest, I've proposed a fee on the biggest banks. (Applause.) Now, I know Wall Street isn't keen on this idea. But if these firms can afford to hand out big bonuses again, they can afford a modest fee to pay back the taxpayers who rescued them in their time of need… (even banks that didn’t take ‘rescue’ money)

    2. And we haven't raised income taxes by a single dime on a single person. Not a single dime.

    3. Economists on the left and the right say this bill has helped save jobs and avert disaster.

    4. Tomorrow, I'll visit Tampa, Florida, where workers will soon break ground on a new high-speed railroad funded by the Recovery Act. (Applause.) There are projects like that all across this country that will create jobs and help move our nation's goods, services, and information.

    5. It would give small businesses and uninsured Americans a chance to choose an affordable health care plan in a competitive market. It would require every insurance plan to cover preventive care.

    6. And no area is more ripe for such innovation than energy. You can see the results of last year's investments in clean energy -– in the North Carolina company that will create 1,200 jobs nationwide helping to make advanced batteries; or in the California business that will put a thousand people to work making solar panels.
    But to create more of these clean energy jobs, …

    7. And according to the Congressional Budget Office -– the independent organization that both parties have cited as the official scorekeeper for Congress –- our approach [to healthcare] would bring down the deficit by as much as $1 trillion over the next two decades.

    8. Now, yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have created this commission. So I'll issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward, because I refuse to pass this problem on to another generation of Americans. (Simpson Bowles tax commission)

    9. That's why -– for the first time in history –- my administration posts on our White House visitors online.

    10. That's why we've excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs, or seats on federal boards and commissions.

    Irrefutable.

    The president's job approval has now surged to the highest level it's been since over a year ago,

    so despite what the chronic Obama haters say, the American people say otherwise.

    Carol Browner, chosen by President Obama as energy czar, has actually been a leader in the Socialist International, which is an umbrella group for the socialist parties of the world, and their website contained the following:
    CAROL M. BROWNER
    Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency
    under President Bill Clinton. Leading the EPA from 1993 to 2001, she
    was the longest serving
    Administrator in the agency ’s history.
    Browner c u r r e n t l y s e r v e s o n t h e b o a r d o f s e v e r a l n o n profit
    organisations, including as chair of the National Audubon Society, one
    of the nation’s oldest environmental organisations, and as a member of
    the Board of the Directors of the Center for American Progress, the
    Alliance for Climate Protection and the League of Conservation Voters.
