Obama, Clinton announce $4 billion energy investment

Washington (CNN) – President Obama announced Friday the federal government and private sector partners will invest $4 billion over the next two years in energy upgrades to buildings across the country, an initiative the White House says will create several thousand new construction jobs.

The president made the announcement on the top floor of a building currently under renovation and only steps from the White House with former President Bill Clinton at his side. The collaboration is part of the White House’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign – a series of executive orders Obama has issued over the last two months without congressional involvement.

    How much are you paid by the DNC or Moveon to make comments here ?

    It is human nature to judge another person's actions by how we would behave in the same situation.

    Our support for our President is not bought and paid for, unlike your hate for him.

    Let's hope that they use control systems built in America by American manufacturers◄

    Right On!!! I am so sick of buying outside of America!!!

    By the way – If you shop at Kroger, buy "HOME" brands of merchandise. These are made and distributed in USA and it works just as good or better than products "Made in China"............I HAVE SWITCHED!!! As a matter of fact – mostly ALL of the "unnamed" prouducts in the store are made HERE!!!
