The Most Important Unknown Statistic
At last night's policy discussion, former President Bill Clinton flagged a warning sign that America is losing its competitive edge in the global economy.

Said Clinton: "In the last eight years, we went from first to tenth in terms of the percentage of 25 to 34 year olds holding a bachelor's degree. That's the most important unknown statistic out there... We are headed into long-term economic decline if we don't do something about it."

Clinton noted that exploding tuition at college is driving the problem, as "higher education institutions are pricing themselves into America's decline." He argued that new, less-costly "delivery systems" for education were needed to reverse this trend.

Please click here to call your senators, and to report your call.

According to our records, you live in New York. Please call:

Treasury, Energy SURPASS $1 BillioN MILESTONE IN RECOVERY ACT AWARDS for Clean Energy Projects
Geithner, Chu Hold Roundtable Discussion with Energy Companies on Expanding Development of Clean, Domestic Sources of Energy

WASHINGTON– This morning, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Energy Secretary Steven Chu hosted a group of clean energy developers and manufacturers at the White House to discuss how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) is creating jobs and helping expand the development of clean, renewable domestic energy. At the meeting, Secretaries Geithner and Chu announced $550 million in new awards through the Recovery Act’s 1603 program, bringing the total to more than $1 billion awarded to date to companies committed to investing in domestic renewable energy production.

“This Recovery Act program is an example of a true federal partnership with the private sector,” said Treasury Secretary Geithner. “Not only are our Recovery dollars meeting an immediate funding need among innovative companies, they are also jumpstarting private sector investment in communities across the country – with benefits for the renewable energy industry and our economy alike.”

Said Secretary Chu: “These investments are crucial to ensuring America can compete and win in the race for the clean energy jobs of the future. With American workers and American innovation, we can and must lead the world when it comes to the new Industrial Revolution in clean energy.”

Created under Section 1603 of the Recovery Act, the program provides cash assistance to energy producers in place of tax credits. The payments improve project viability, enabling companies to create and retain jobs, and establish sufficient financing bases for projects that may otherwise not be possible, dramatically expanding and accelerating the development of renewable energy projects throughout the country. Under this program, the federal government provides a cash payment in lieu of a tax credit totaling 30 percent of the qualifying cost of the project; for each federal dollar spent in payments, more than two dollars are spent in private sector investments.

Today the Treasury Department will make the second round of awards, all of which will be made in half the statutorily mandated turnaround time of 60 days. The first round of awards totaling $502 million was announced on September 1, 2009. Today’s announcement provides an additional $550 million. The 1603 program is having an immediate effect on the renewable energy industry by significantly increasing the availability and liquidity of project capital in three ways:
· Recycling grants into new projects. Project developers are able to begin construction of additional projects thanks to the extra capital from the grants they are receiving.
· Increasing the flow of capital. By reversing the drop in availability of equity investment available, the 1603 program brings significant private capital off the sidelines to finance more renewables projects.
· Attracting investment for domestic projects. Large project developers allocate capital across many countries, and the 1603 program is attracting billions of dollars of additional capital towards projects in the US.

Project developers receiving awards through this program participated in today's meeting, including Ameresco, First Wind, Horizon Wind, and Sun Edison. Also participating were several renewables manufacturers who supply these developers, including Cardinal Fastener, GE Energy, Gamesa, Solyndra, and Vestas Americas.
· At a site in Pittsburgh, CA, Ameresco is using a landfill to provide power to the City of Palo Alto. Payments awarded because of this project will allow Ameresco to accelerate its development of renewable energy projects by a minimum of four more domestic projects a year.
· Solyndra is helping to provide energy to a building in downtown Denver, CO through solar panels on the roof, a project that would not have been possible without Recovery Act payments.
· Vestas Americas has made a significant investment in developing renewable energy in the United States. The company has allocated $1 billion for new manufacturing facilities throughout the country, and the 1603 program will allow these facilities to be fully operational by 2011.

The following is a chart of the 25 projects that qualified for awards as part of today’s announcement.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 22, 2009 - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today welcomed China's Minister of Agriculture Sun Zhengcai to the United States to discuss a wide range of agricultural trade issues. They concluded their talks by renewing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on bilateral cooperation in scientific research and agricultural trade between the two countries. The original MOU signed in August 2003 established a Joint Committee on Cooperation in Agriculture (JCCA), which meets at least once every two years alternately in the United States and China.


"Since China joined the WTO in 2001, it has become our fourth largest market for agricultural exports," said Vilsack. "With two-way agricultural trade reaching nearly $15 billion, it is not surprising that there are issues that require coordination. The renewal of this MOU is an indication of the importance that both countries place on cooperation and working together. The MOU solidifies the JCCA to develop and guide future collaboration between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture."


The next JCCA meetings are scheduled for Oct. 22, 2009, in Washington. Following those meetings, Vilsack will travel to China along with Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk to participate in the U.S.-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) in Hangzhou on Oct. 29. The JCCT serves as an important forum for Cabinet-level officials from both countries to resolve trade concerns and enhance economic opportunities and cooperation. USDA Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services James Miller just returned from China where he participated in meetings of the Agriculture and Sanitary and Phytosanitary Working Groups under the JCCT.

Bipartisan Consensus for Extending Unemployment Benefits

Under the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the pace of job loss has declined dramatically in recent months. However, because the recession was so deep, it will take more time to completely reverse the more than 6.9 million jobs lost since the beginning of the recession in 2007. Long-term unemployment has hit its highest rate since measuring began in 1948, with 5 million Americans out of work for more than six months. Over 300,000 jobless workers are expected to run out of unemployment compensation by the end of September. Therefore, Congress is taking action to provide up to an additional 13 weeks of extended unemployment benefits in states with high unemployment, where it is much more difficult for people to find new jobs, despite months of searching.

US Energy Secretary Chu Announces $528 Million Loan for Advanced Vehicle Technology for Fisker Automotive

Investment will save or create at least 5,000 jobs

Washington, DC – Energy Secretary Steven Chu today announced a $528.7 million conditional loan for Fisker Automotive for the development of two lines of plug-in hybrids that will save hundreds of millions gallons of gasoline and offset millions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions by 2016. The project will result in approximately 5,000 jobs created or saved for domestic parts suppliers and thousands more to manufacture a plug-in hybrid in the U.S.

“This investment will create thousands of new American jobs and is another critical step in making sure we are positioned to compete for the clean energy jobs of the future,” said Secretary Chu. “Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles could revolutionize personal transportation and cut our dependence on foreign oil, not to mention give us cleaner air and less carbon pollution.”

This is the fourth conditional loan commitment the Department of Energy has entered into under the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing (ATVM) Loan program. The Department plans to make additional loans under this program over the coming months to large and small auto manufacturers and parts suppliers up and down the production supply chain.

In the first stage of the program, Fisker Automotive will use a $169.3 million ATVM loan for engineering integration costs as it works with primarily U.S. suppliers to complete the company’s first vehicle, the Fisker Karma. Engineers will also design tools and equipment and develop manufacturing processes. This work will be conducted at Fisker’s Pontiac, Michigan office with support from its headquarters in Irvine, California. While the final assembly of the Karma will be done overseas, more than 65 percent (based on cost) of the parts required for Karma will come from U.S. suppliers. The four-door Karma is scheduled to appear in showrooms in summer 2010.

The second stage includes a $359.36 million ATVM loan for Fisker’s Project Nina, involving the manufacture of a plug-in hybrid in the U.S. Fisker estimates that up to 75,000-100,000 of these highly efficient vehicles will roll off assembly lines in the U.S. every year beginning in late 2012. The combined projects are anticipated to create thousands of jobs in the U.S. and provide substantial support for domestic parts suppliers saving or creating approximately 5,000 jobs.

Fisker automobiles are driven by electric motors powered by a lithium-ion battery, or, when that is depleted, a generator driven by an efficient gasoline engine. The electric-only range will be more than most people drive in a day. The battery can be charged at home overnight. Using gas and electric power, Fisker plug-in hybrids will have a cruising range of about 300 miles. The projected annual sales of these vehicles would contribute significantly to the Administration’s goal of having one million plug-in hybrids on the road by 2015.

HHS Secretary Sebelius Announces Senate Confirmation of Carmen Nazario as Assistant Secretary for Children and Families

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today that the United States Senate unanimously confirmed Carmen Nazario as Assistant Secretary for Children and Families. In that role, she will oversee the Administration for Children and Families within HHS.

“Carmen Nazario has a distinguished record of more than 40 years working in human services at every level of government, as well as in the private and non-profit sectors,” said Secretary Sebelius. “She has devoted her career to developing and implementing programs that promote the well-being of children and families, and she will build on that important work as Assistant Secretary for Children and Families.”

Carmen Nazario’s Bio:

Until her recent nomination, Carmen Nazario was an Assistant Professor at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, where she taught social policy and coordinated the Social Work Practicum at the School of Social Work. Nazario has vast experience in public service with a focus on improving services to children and families within the United States and around the world, dating back to 1968. From January 2003 – December 2008, she served as Administrator of the Administration for Children and Families for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, where she led an agency of 4,000 staff with a budget of over $220 million. Prior to that, she served as the Senior Resident Investigator for the Jordan Poverty Alleviation Program, where she developed and implemented a national poverty reduction strategy for the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and advised leaders in the nation on the delivery of social services. During the Clinton Administration, she first served as Associate Commissioner for Child Care in the Administration on Children, Youth and Families and later became the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). Nazario joined the Clinton Administration after serving as Secretary of Health and Social Services for the State of Delaware from 1993-1997, and, prior to that, she was the Director of Social Services in Norfolk, Virginia, and Loudon County, Virginia. Nazario has held a number of national leadership roles, including Vice President of the Board of Directors of the American Public Welfare Association, President of the National Council of Local Public Welfare Administrators, and Secretary of the National Council of State Human Service Administrators. Nazario is from Bayamon, Puerto Rico. She received a Bachelor of Arts with honors in Sociology from the University of Puerto Rico in 1967, and was awarded her Master of Social Work degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work in 1973.

Hoyer Statement on the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2009

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) spoke on the House Floor today in support of the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2009. Below are his remarks as prepared for delivery:

“Eight months into the 111th Congress, and the Obama presidency, it is clear that the economic policies that we have put in place are helping to pull our country out of recession. This month, the Blue Chip economic survey confirmed that 81% of leading economists believe the recession is over; Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently stated that he agrees.

“Non-partisan economic analysts agree that the actions taken by the Obama administration and Congress, including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, were critical to stabilizing our economy and putting us on the path to recovery. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Moody’s, and the Council of Economic Advisors all concluded that our economy has approximately one million more jobs than it would have had if the Recovery Act had not been passed. And last week, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that the Recovery Act kept six million Americans from falling below the poverty line and reduced the severity of poverty for 33 million Americans. Whether we are Republicans or Democrats, those are results we can all cheer—because they mean economic security for the people we represent.

“However, it is clear that unemployment remains a problem for millions of American families. The headlines may say that our recession is over—but for those who remain out of work, this is still a time of hardship and struggle. According to the CBO, it has also become clear that the hole we are climbing out of was deeper than we knew: now we know that the economy was in even worse shape than economists realized when President Obama took office in January.

“Though unemployment continues to strain families in all of our districts, job losses have been steadily decreasing under President Obama, with last month’s figures the best in a year. But while job losses have slowed, it will take some time before we can reverse the losses that economists agree began nearly two years ago, and start creating enough jobs for people who have been out of work. Long-term unemployment remains at its highest rate since we began measuring it in 1948: over 33% of the total unemployed have been out of work for more than 26 weeks.

“And, even as our country emerges from an economic crisis, hundreds of thousands of Americans and their families face a more personal crisis: at the end of this month, their unemployment insurance will run out, even though they continue to look for work. Many of these workers are middle-class Americans; and many of them lost their jobs without notice. According to a recent unemployment survey conducted by the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers: ‘six in 10 of those whose employer had let them go had no advance warning. Adding to the pain for many, nearly four in 10 said they had been employed by their company for more than three years, and one in 10 for more than a decade.’ In other words, Americans who had what they thought were stable jobs—and made commitments based on those jobs, like mortgages and college payments—found themselves out of work without warning, leaving them and their families in dire straits.

“For their sake, this bill extends for up to 13 weeks the unemployment benefits of more than 300,000 American workers. I know that some argue that unemployment insurance can be an incentive not to seek a job at all. But that argument doesn’t hold water for the workers who are the target of this bill—workers in the states with unemployment rates over 8.5%, the states in which an honest effort to find work is most likely to be frustrated. We chose to target those workers who are still having difficulty finding a job—not because they’re failing to give their best effort, but because the economic climate of their state is still difficult.

“Not only is supporting job-seeking workers the right thing to do—extending unemployment insurance benefits all of us. That’s because the money provided is quickly spent on necessities, which provides an immediate boost to local economies.

“Mr. Speaker, an extension of unemployment insurance is supported by a bipartisan coalition of 22 governors, who understand its benefits for their economies and families. They write that unemployment benefits have ‘offered relief each month to struggling families across the country and have played a critical role in stabilizing the economy’—and that these benefits must be extended. I would also add that, because this bill is fully paid-for, it doesn’t add to the deficit.

“In eight months, we have come a long way in recovering from the recession inherited by President Obama. But we cannot forget about those whom the recovery has not yet reached—which is why I urge my colleagues to support this important bill.”

David Axelrod, The White House: Got a few minutes?
Dear Friend,

Four minutes — that’s all you need to learn just what you get from health insurance reform. Take the few minutes and watch now

The details the President outlines in this video are those that every American needs to know. No matter your political party or whether or not you have insurance, his plan for health care security and stability matters to all of us.

Millions of American citizens cannot get health insurance — and 14,000 are losing their insurance every day. If we do nothing, half of Americans under the age of 65 will lose their health insurance at some point in the next ten years.

That’s not right. Plain and simple. For Americans with insurance as well as those without it, inaction is not an option. In America, no one should go broke because they get sick.

Bottom line — health insurance reform will provide more security and stability to those who have health insurance, coverage for those who don’t, and will lower the cost of health care for our families, our businesses, and our government.

As the President says, now is the time to deliver the change we need on health care. Forward this email and make sure your family, friends and social networks take four minutes and watch this video.

Thank you,

David Axelrod
Senior Adviser to the President
