Statements and Releases – March 06, 2014

 

Readout of President Obama’s call with President Putin of Russia

President Obama spoke for an hour this afternoon with President Putin of Russia. President Obama emphasized that Russia’s actions are in violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, which has led us to take several steps in response, in coordination with our European partners. President Obama indicated that there is a way to resolve the situation diplomatically, which addresses the interests of Russia, the people of Ukraine, and the international community. As a part of that resolution, the governments of Ukraine and Russia would hold direct talks, facilitated by the international community; international monitors could ensure that the rights of all Ukrainians are protected, including ethnic Russians; Russian forces would return to their bases; and the international community would work together to support the Ukrainian people as they prepare for elections in May. President Obama indicated that Secretary Kerry would continue discussions with Foreign Minister Lavrov, the government of  Ukraine, and other international partners in the days to come to advance those objectives.

 

 

Statement by the President

Today, I signed the National Integrated Drought Information System Reauthorization Act into law. This bipartisan legislation ensures that the federal government can continue to provide timely, effective drought warning forecasts and vital support to communities that are vulnerable to drought.  States, cities, towns, farmers, and businesses rely on tools and data from the National Integrated Drought Information System to make informed decisions about water use, crop planting, wildfire response, and other critical areas.  As climate change increases the intensity of weather-related disasters such as droughts, wildfires, storms and floods, providing access to updated drought-related science and tools is growing even more important.

 

Currently, a number of Western states are facing drought conditions, including a severe drought in California, and my Administration is pursuing every measure to provide relief and support in partnership with States. To complement the National Integrated Drought Information System, as part of my Climate Action Plan, federal agencies have also formed a National Drought Resilience Partnership to help communities better prepare for droughts in the long term, and prevent the worst impacts on families and businesses.  I commend Congress for passing this bipartisan bill to continue to build our national resilience to drought and help communities, farmers, businesses and individuals better prepare and recover when disaster strikes.

 

 

Statement by the Press Secretary on H.R. 2431

On Thursday, March 6, 2014, the President signed into law:

H.R. 2431, the “National Integrated Drought Information System Reauthorization Act of 2014,” which authorizes appropriations for the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) through FY 2018 and requires the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to report to Congress on the implementation of the NIDIS.

Coming out of the very productive consultations between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama during their bilateral meeting this week, President Obama has asked National Security Advisor Susan Rice to travel to Israel in May to lead the U.S. delegation to the U.S.-Israel Consultative Group.  Ambassador Rice looks forward to her first visit to Israel as National Security Advisor to continue our strategic consultations on a wide range of bilateral and regional issues.

Thanks to the health care law, 10.2 million uninsured Latinos can purchase quality, affordable coverage through the marketplace — and as many as 8 million could get a break on costs. This town hall is a great chance to learn more about how the Affordable Care Act can make an impact in your community.

Presidential Innovation Fellows Round 3: Serve. Create. Innovate.

 

Todd Park and Dan Tangherlini
March 06, 2014
09:00 AM EST

 

Today, we are very excited to announce that applications are now being accepted  for the third round of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program. This initiative pairs talented, diverse individuals from outside government with top Federal innovators to implement game-changing projects that make the Federal Government work better for the American people.

 

At its core, the Presidential Innovation Fellows Program is as strong as the incredible people that are willing to join this effort and serve their country. That’s why we want the best and brightest individuals—original thinkers, gifted designers, tech-savvy strategists, private-sector doers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and talented developers and engineers—to offer up their skills and expertise to create huge value for the American public.

 

Round 3 will include 14 projects that focus on addressing three high-impact initiatives:

 

  • Making Digital the Default: Building a 21st Century Veterans Experience: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is embarking on a bold new initiative to create a “digital by default” experience for our Nation’s veterans that provides better, faster access to services and complements the Department’s work to eliminate the disability claims backlog.
  • Data Innovation: Unleashing the Power of Data Resources to Improve Americans’ Lives: This initiative aim to accelerate and expand the Federal Government’s efforts to liberate government data by making these information resources more accessible to the public and useable in computer readable forms, and to spur the use of those data by companies, entrepreneurs, citizens, and others to fuel the creation of new products, services, and jobs.
  • By the People, for the People: Crowdsourcing to Improve Government: Crowdsourcing is a powerful way to organize people, mobilize resources, and gather information. This initiative will leverage technology and innovation to engage the American public as a strategic partner in solving difficult challenges and improving the way government works—from helping NASA find asteroid threats to human populations to improving the quality of U.S. patents to unlocking information contained in government records.

 

More information on each project is available here.

 

Since the initiative launched two years ago, Presidential Innovation Fellows, along with their government teammates, have been delivering impressive results—at start-up velocity. Fellows have unleashed the power of open government data to spur the creation of new products and jobs; improved the ability of the Federal government to respond effectively to natural disasters; designed pilot projects that make it easier for new economy companies to do business with the Federal Government; and much more. Their impact is enormous.

 

For example, Fellows recently helped expand the Blue Button Initiative, which is helping Americans across the country gain secure, online access to their own healthcare information. Through the work of Fellows and their government teammates, the Blue Button Initiative has expanded its reach to more than 150 million Americans who are today able to use Blue Button-enabled tools to access their own health information from a variety of sources including healthcare providers, health insurance companies, medical labs, and state health information networks.

 

Another recent example of the Fellows in action is their work at the Smithsonian Institute to develop a crowdsourcing platform that allows the public to transcribe handwritten historic documents and records. This kind of innovative approach will not only support important research, but provide an important avenue for the public to help preserve our Nation’s history.  In just six months, Fellows developed and launched an end-to-end solution for creating digital records for historic files, which in turn engaged thousands of volunteers who have helped to transcribe and review more than 3,000 historic and scientific records —which are now easily accessible to the public for the first time.

 

Looking ahead, the next round of Presidential Innovation Fellows will continue to build on these successes as well as tackle a new set of challenges.

 

This is an opportunity to truly transform how government works for the people it serves. The work will be challenging, but promises to be tremendously rewarding. The first step is to apply here. We can’t wait to see what the third round of Fellows will do!

John Harper: Afghanistan Veteran William Kyle Carpenter To Receive Medal Of Honor

carpenterimage5

President Barack Obama will award medically retired Marine Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter the Medal of Honor later this year in recognition of Carpenter’s heroic actions during a November 2010 grenade attack in Afghanistan. Carpenter, 24, would be the 10th U.S. servicemember — and the second Marine — to receive the Medal of Honor from the war in Afghanistan. Carpenter was nominated for the nation’s highest award for valor following reports that he covered a grenade to save the life of his friend,

Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio, during an insurgent attack in the Marjah district of Helmand province as the two Marines were standing guard on a rooftop on Nov. 21, 2010. Carpenter and Eufrazio survived the blast, but suffered severe wounds. Carpenter lost an eye and most of his teeth and shattered his jaw; his arm was also broken in several places. Damage from shrapnel to the frontal lobe of Eufrazio’s brain left him unable to speak for two years.

Today, President Obama travelled to Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut to speak about the importance of raising the minimum wage.

 

Joined by Secretary of Labor Tom Perez, along with Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy, Rhode Island Governer Lincoln Chafee, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin, the President addressed a crowd filled with students to dicsuss his plan to expand opportunity for all Americans.

 

He detailed the four parts of his opporuntity agenda: 1) create more new jobs; 2) train Americans with the skills to fill those jobs; 3) guarantee every young person access to a world-class education; and 4) make sure hard work pays off.

 

Ensuring that hard work pays off means that women should receive equal pay for equal work, that Americans can save and retire with dignity, that people have health insurance when they need it most, and that the wage you make is enough to support yourself and your family.

 

“Nobody who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty. That violates a basic sense of who we are.  And that’s why it’s time to give America a raise,” said President Obama. “What every American wants is a paycheck that lets them support their families, know a little economic security, pass down some hope and optimism to their kids. And that’s worth fighting for.”

 

That’s why President Obama isn’t waiting for Congress to take action. Last month, he used his pen to sign an executive orderrequiring federal contractors to pay their employees a fair wage of at least $10.10 an hour.

 

Raising the minimum wage for all Americans to $10.10 an hour would help not only minimum wage workers; it would lift wages for nearly 28 million Americans across this country and raise millions of people out of poverty.

 

If you agree it’s time to give America’s workers a raise, add you name here.

Add Your Name: It’s Time to Raise the Wage

 

  • Secretary Thomas E. Perez

    March 05, 2014
    05:02 PM EST

     

    This afternoon, Secretary Tom Perez sent the message below to the White House email list, asking people to add their name in support of raising the federal minimum wage. 

     

    Didn’t get the email? Make sure you sign up for updates from the President and other White House officials.

     


     

    Several weeks ago, I met Semethia and Anna.

     

    Semethia’s a 36-year-old single mom. Her son hopes to go to college one day. Her daughter wants to take gymnastics lessons. But with a service job that pays just $8.25 an hour, Semethia relies on food stamps and help from friends and family just to keep food on the table — much less build the future she’d like for her kids.

     

    Anna works as a tip server at two local D.C. restaurants. She doesn’t yet have to support a family, but she still struggles to make ends meet when she’s relying on tips to get by — and she sees the tough decisions her colleagues make every day. One of her coworkers recently missed her son’s birthday party in order to cover a shift — that’s how badly she needed the money to support her family.

     

    You see, when we talk about the kind of folks whose lives will be made better by raising the minimum wage, we’re not talking about a couple teenagers earning extra spending money to supplement their allowance. We’re talking about providers and breadwinners. Working Americans with bills to pay and mouths to feed.

     

    And right now, millions of them are trying to do that on just $7.25 an hour.

     

    We can change that. We can raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, we can do it right now, and we should. If you agree that it’s high time we do — that America’s workers deserve a raise — then add your name right here.

 

The President said this in his State of the Union, and we can’t lose track of it: Here in America, no one working full-time should have to raise a family in poverty.

 

Think about that for a second: Right now, around the country, there are parents who, despite working full-time jobs, are living below the poverty line. We’re better than that.

 

raisethewage

 

This is the right thing to do for our workers, and it’s the right thing to do for our economy. If you agree, then say so here: It’s time to raise the federal minimum wage.

 

Thank you,

 

Tom

Please TELL WALMART: STOP SELLING CRICKET GUNS FOR/TO YOUNG CHILDREN


 

By Jueseppi B.

THIS should scare the fuck out of you.

THIS should scare the fuck out of you.

 

Walmart, the American multinational retail giant, currently sells Crickett Firearms, a line of rifles that are marketed to very young children under the tagline “My First Rifle.” These weapons often look like toys, coming in colors like pink and orange.

 

A new study shows that 20 children and teens are hospitalized every day for gun injuries in the United States. Nearly 2,700 children and teens died from gun-related injuries in 2010. U.S. children and teens are 17 times more likely to die from a gun than their peers in 25 other high-income countries combined.

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has made it clear that “the safest home for children is one without a gun.” According to a past president of the AAP, “Firearm injuries are often fatal—there are few second chances. Young children are curious, and are often unable to remember or follow safety rules. Older children and teens naturally tend to be moody and impulsive. When you combine these traits with access to guns, the consequences can be tragic and permanent.”

 

As the second largest public corporation in the world, Walmart says “we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far on our journey to become a more…responsible business.” But responsible businesses do not market weapons to young children, particularly in a country where children suffer such a high rate of gun death.

 

Tell Walmart: Stop selling Crickett Firearms at your stores immediately.
