President Obama Speech Preview
The president will talk about the choice between two very different visions of America.
Tonight President Obama will ask the country to rally around a set of goals on manufacturing, energy, education, national security, and the deficit – a real, achievable plan that will create jobs, expand opportunity, and ensure an economy built to last.
Create one million new manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016
Double exports by the end of 2014
Cut net oil imports in half by 2020
Support 600,000 natural gas jobs by the end of the decade
Cut the growth of college tuition in half over the next 10 years
Recruit 100,000 math and science teachers over the next 10 years
Train two million workers for real jobs at community colleges
Invest in the economy with the money we’re no longer spending on war
Reduce the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade
