"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 global economy. That is what this legislation seeks to achieve -- it is a bill that will open the door to a better future for this nation. And that is why I urge members of the House to come together and pass it."
-- President Barack Obama urging the House to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act, June 23, 2009.
