Obama went on to support tax code reform to benefit companies that insource jobs back to the United States. Money saved from this reform would go towards improving infrastructure and creating more jobs. He announced his unwavering support for small businesses and technological innovation and encouraged Congress to undo cuts to research.

This is an edge America cannot surrender."While Obama proudly declared that his "all of the above" energy plan is working to make energy independence a reality, he focused primarily on natural gas. While a step-up from foreign oil, natural gas is not always "extracted safely," i.e.fracking. He mentioned solar power and asserted that tax reform must prevent Big Oil from receiving $4 billion a year, so that this money can be invested in alternative fuel sources. And, to restate what we already know, the President made clear that climate change is indeed real.

"But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact. And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did."
