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.
