President Calls on House to Pass Climate Bill

At this afternoon's press conference, the president spoke about the climate change legislation that the House is set to address on Friday. Here's what he said:

We all know why this is so important. The nation that leads in the creation of a clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the 21st century's global economy. That's what this legislation seeks to achieve. It's a bill that will open the door to a better future for this nation and that's why I urge members of Congress to come together and pass it.

That's about all that needs to be said — it's clear what our members of Congress need to do now.
