Obama Popular In Tech World, Policies Less So – Abc News

One of the big success stories is that the solar industry is booming, Dan Utech , special assistant to the president for energy and climate change, told reporters yesterday. In the last six years, solar installations in this country have increased around elevenfold, from 1.2 gigawatts to an estimated 13 gigawatts today, enough to power more than 2 million American homes. Obama is seeking to make addressing climate change part of his legacy in office. This week the administration released a National Climate Assessment that supporters and critics say lays the groundwork for new efforts to curb emissions blamed for global warming. His strategy includes promoting greater use of renewable energy and making buildings and vehicles more efficient. Solar panels were recently installed on the image source roof of the White House and Obama routinely mentions home appliance energy-use improvements and stronger fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks on his list of accomplishments.

Obama Makes Wal-Mart an Example to Push Energy Efficiency – Bloomberg

Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told his colleagues he, too, would support Burwell. I look forward to her confirmation being quick, he said. Obama tapped Burwell in April to replace Kathleen Sebelius, who has led the Department of Health and Human Services since 2009 and helped guide the rocky implementation of the Affordable Care Act. A West Virginia native and the daughter of an optometrist, Burwell currently serves as head of the White House Office of Management and Budget, one of the most powerful positions in most administrations. 5 Burwell is a veteran of the Clinton White House, where she was deputy director of the budget office.

Obama to donors: ‘Feel a sense of urgency’ about midterms – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs

He’s toast, by the way. May 8, 2014 01:38 pm at 1:38 pm | it must be said Any red state that elects a Democrat to national office is voting against their best interests. Democrats and the far left in control of the party HATES YOU. They think you are redneck LOSERS and uneducated IDIOTS. Why on earth would you vote for something whose party thinks that way about you? You are enabling the Demorcat Party to jam things like Obamacare down your throats as well as the entire country.

“That adds an entire pool of fresh donor blood into the mix.” Obama’s message at fundraisers has focused on this year’s midterm elections and on retaining Democratic control of the Senate, essential to the remaining 2 1/2 years of his presidency. He warned Democratic National Committee donors at an event hosted by Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and tech venture capitalist Sam Altman that Democratic voters were less likely to vote in a midterm election, and said the lack of action in Congress was dispiriting to them. “The reason that we’ve got gridlock right now is you’ve got a party that’s been captured by folks who are on the wrong side of the issues,” he said. “The way to fix Congress is not by getting cynical and saying a plague on both your houses.” Earlier, Obama attended a fundraiser hosted by Anne Wojcicki, a biotech entrepreneur who founded the genetic testing firm 23andMe and separated last year from her husband, Google cofounder Sergey Brin. The event was advertised as a Tech Roundtable, with 30 guests and tickets set at $32,400 a potential haul of nearly $1 million for the Democratic National Committee.
