The Weekly Address: Closing Corporate Tax Loopholes

Published on Jul 26, 2014

In this week’s address, the President continued his call for our nation to rally around an economic patriotism that says rather than protecting wasteful tax loopholes for a few at the top, we should be investing in things like education and job training that grow the economy for everybody.

 

 

 

Mensaje De La Casa Blanca

 

Published on Jul 26, 2014

En el mensaje de esta semana, la Directora del Consejo de Política Nacional de la Casa Blanca Cecilia Muñoz destacó el progreso de nuestra economía, pero tambíen habló sobre como un grupo pequeño pero creciente de grandes corporaciones están fugándose del país para evitar pagar impuestos, a pesar de que las ganancias corporativas son más elevadas que nunca. Así como lo refleja el presupuesto del Presidente, la mejor manera de que todos estemos en igualdad de condicioneses a través de una reforma tributaria que reduzca la tasa impositiva corporativa, cierre las lagunas tributarias que representan un derroche y simplifique el código fiscal para todos.

Weekly Wrap Up: Astronauts, “Inversions,” and the VP and a White Board

 

This week, some astronauts stopped by the White House (hint: think 1969), we talked about “inversions” (more on that later), the President awarded the Medal of Honor, and the Vice President got a marker and white board and gave us a little bit of history on our nation’s infrastructure.

 

Check out what else you may have missed in this week’s wrap up.

 

West Wing Week 07/25/14 or, “The Irrefutable Rightness of Your Cause”

 

This week, the President introduced a historic Executive Action for LGBT rights, continued to address the ongoing conflicts in the Ukraine and Gaza, hosted a town hall in support of his My Brother’s Keeper Initiative, and traveled to California to deliver his response to some very striking letters he’d received … in person.

“You Are Why I Ran for President in the First Place”

 

Yesterday, President Obama spoke under sunny skies at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. He talked about the progress that we’ve made since he took office and training our workers for a 21st-century economy.

 

 

The President called for a new sense of optimism and collective patriotism in this country: “Cynicism is a choice, and hope is a better choice. And if we can work together, I promise you there’s no holding America back.”

 

He also talked about something known as “inversions.” What’s an “inversion,” you ask? Learn more here.

Apollo 11: 45 Years Later

 

Forty-five years ago, two American astronauts — Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong — landed on the moon’s Sea of Tranquility, and Neil Armstrong planted the first footprint on the surface of the moon.

On Tuesday, President Obama invited Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, the astronaut who piltoted the spacecraft that orbited the moon, and Neil Armstrong’s wife, Carol, to the White House. Armstrong passed away in 2012.

This week marked the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. July 22, 2014. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

 

To honor the anniversary, we spent a little time poring over archival footage of the Apollo 11 mission — and included some of the incredible work that NASA is doing today. We won’t spoil it all for you here, but it includes redirecting asteroids around the moon and going to Mars. So, that’s pretty cool.

The Vice President Takes the Marker

 

The Vice President talked about an issue that’s very near and dear to him: the state of our infrastructure in this country. And to do that, he picked up a marker, and took to our “White House white board” to explain the crisis that our nation’s roads and bridges face today.

 

 

65% of our roads are in less than good condition. 25% of our bridges require significant require or can’t handle today’s traffic. And 45% of Americans lack access to transit. Watch the Vice President explain the history of our country’s infrastructure, and then be sure to pass this one on.

“For Conspicuous Gallantry”

 

On Monday, President Obama presented the Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Ryan M. Pitts for his unwavering courage in one of the fiercest battles of the war in Afghanistan.

 

 

The President described Ryan’s heroic acts during his remarks:

 

As the insurgents moved in, Ryan picked up a grenade, pulled the pin, and held that live grenade—for a moment, then another, then another—finally hurling it so they couldn’t throw it back. Then he did it again. And again. Unable to stand, Ryan pulled himself up on his knees and manned a machine gun. Soldiers from the base below made a daring run—dodging bullets and explosions—and joined the defense. But now the enemy was inside the post—so close they were throwing rocks at the Americans; so close they came right up to the sandbags. Eight American soldiers had now fallen. And Ryan Pitts was the only living soldier at that post.

“We’re All Heartbroken by What’s Happened”

 

On Tuesday morning, the President visited the Embassy of the Netherlands and signed a condolence book for those killed in the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in Ukraine.

In the condolence book, the President wrote:

 

On behalf of the American people, I extend our deepest condolences to the people of the Netherlands as they mourn the loss of so many family and friends. No words can adequately express the sorrow the world feels over this loss. It is made more acute by the deep ties of friendship between our two countries. Bound by that friendship, we will not rest until we are certain that justice is done.

Celebrating 24 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

 

Tomorrow marks the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) — a landmark law that transformed American society for people with disabilities. It provided for full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for those of us living with disabilities, and also provided Americans with disabilities with legal remedies to safeguard all of those rights.

 

 

Read the President’s proclamation in support of the anniversary here.

 

This morning, Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President; Paulette Aniskoff, Director of the Office of Public Engagement; and I hosted a meeting with a small group of disability leaders to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the ADA. In the meeting, we discussed the critical efforts that federal agencies are leading to protect the rights of, and participation by, people with disabilities in our communities.

 

We also discussed ways in which we can all work together to ensure that all Americans with disabilities, including our veterans and wounded warriors, have the opportunity to be full and active members of our society, participants in our democracy, and self-sufficient contributors to our economy.

 

It’s also fitting that President Obama signed the bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) into law during this anniversary week. WIOA, which reauthorizes the Workforce Investment Act, breaks down barriers and streamlines services with the goal of moving more individuals with disabilities into competitive, integrated employment.

 

WIOA expands career development and pre-employment services, and also modernizes and improves workforce development programs to help all individuals — including youth and adults with disabilities – attain the skills they need to be successful in today’s economy.

As the President said at the bill signing:

 

So the bill I’m about to sign will give communities more certainty to invest in job-training programs for the long run.  It will help us bring those programs into the 21st century by building on what we know works based on evidence, based on tracking what actually delivers on behalf of folks who enroll in these programs -– more partnerships with employers, more tools to measure performance, more flexibilities for states and cities to innovate and to run their workforce programs in ways that are best suited for their particular demographic and their particular industries.  And as we approach the 24th anniversary of the ADA, this bill takes new steps to support Americans with disabilities who want to live and work independently.  So there’s a lot of good stuff in here.

Connecting African Leaders to U.S. Industry Beyond the Beltway

 

The upcoming U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which is the largest single engagement by any U.S. President with our African partners, will help the United States play a driving role in the continent’s future development.

Many Americans are aware that sub-Saharan Africa is a fast-growing region with tremendous potential, but they may not know about significant plans to develop infrastructure across the continent. We believe that these plans represent enormous business opportunities for U.S. companies of all sizes, and that is why we have invited key African decision-makers to meet with private-sector leaders in Chicago and Houston prior to the Summit.

These African Leaders’ Visits, which the U.S. Trade and Development Agency is partnering with the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Energy to host from July 30 to August 1, will highlight the United States’ experience fostering economic growth through key infrastructure investments. These Visits are the only commercially focused events to take African leaders to major U.S. cities outside of Washington, D.C. on the occasion of the Summit.

spousal_icon

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony R. Foxx and I will co-host the African Leaders’ Visit: Transport in Chicago for transportation ministers whose countries have recently announced plans for significant near-term expansions in both rail and aviation infrastructure. Site visits to the Union Pacific Intermodal Terminal and O’Hare International Airport will feature the U.S. rail and aviation industries and demonstrate how the development of transportation infrastructure has made Chicago an international hub for finance, industry, and technological innovation.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and I will lead the African Leaders’ Visit: Energy in Houston for energy ministers as they face important decisions on how best to develop their countries’ extensive natural gas reserves. In Houston, the delegates will visit energy facilities that were developed to transport and utilize the area’s natural gas resources and that have helped create an economic boom.

The Visits will provide U.S. companies of all sizes exposure to African leaders in settings that showcase the operation of their cutting-edge technologies and services. In Chicago and Houston, the leaders will discuss investment opportunities in their countries and identify potential areas of partnership with the United States. U.S. businesses interested in participating in the Visits can find additional information at www.ustda.gov/africanleadersvisitsor on social media via #ALVTransport and #ALVEnergy.

By emphasizing American ingenuity and innovation that can address the continent’s infrastructure needs, the African Leaders’ Visits will help establish new – and strengthen existing – commercial partnerships between the United States and Africa.

Think Progress: Obamacare Has Helped Americans Save Nearly $2 Billion On Their Insurance Premiums

Millions of Americans can expect to get a refund from their insurance companies this year, at an average of about $80 dollars per family, thanks to a little-known Obamacare provision that’s helping people save money on their premiums. According to a new report released by the Health and Human Services Department on Thursday, Americans across the country have received a total of $1.9 billion dollars in rebates since this provision first took effect in 2011.

 

Obamacare’s medical loss ratio provision — which is also frequently referred to as the “80/20 rule” — requires insurers to spend at least 80 percent of every American’s premium costs on their medical care, rather than on the company’s own profits or administrative overhead. If insurance companies don’t hit the right balance, they have to issue a refund check to their customers to make up for it.

Earnest: White House is ‘Confident’ in Legal Basis for Health Care Law

 

Published on Jul 22, 2014

The White House doubled-down on its support for the 2010 health care law Tuesday, following a federal appeals court ruling that some say could derail the law’s success.

 

“You don’t need a fancy legal degree to understand that Congress intended for every eligible American to have access to tax credits that would lower their health care costs, regardless of whether it was state officials or federal officials who were running the marketplace,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. “This will work its way through the legal process and we are confident in the legal case that the Department of Justice will be making.”

The President Gives an Update on Ukraine and Gaza

President Obama makes a statement on the current situation in Ukraine, as well as the situation in Gaza, July 21, 2014.

 

 

The President Gives an Update on the Situation in Ukraine

 

This morning, President Obama made a statement on the current situation in Ukraine, in the wake of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 being shot down last week over territory controlled by Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine.

 

Following his press statement on Friday, the President restated today that “our immediate focus is on recovering those who were lost, investigating exactly what happened, and putting forward the facts. We have to make sure that the truth is out and that accountability exists.”

 

He also noted that international investigators are already on the ground, prepared and organized to conduct “the kinds of protocols and scouring and collecting of evidence that should follow any international incident like this.” President Obama then called on Russia — and President Vladimir Putin in particular — to “insist that the separatists stop tampering with the evidence, [and] grant investigators who are already on the ground immediate, full, and unimpeded access to the crash site.”

 

At the beginning of his statement, the President also took a moment to address the situation in Gaza. He reiterated that Israel has a right to defend itself against rocket and tunnel attacks from Hamas, but that we also have “serious concerns about the rising number of Palestinian civilian deaths and the loss of Israeli lives.”

 

“That is why it now has to be our focus, and the focus of the international community,” he said, “to bring about a ceasefire that ends the fighting and that can stop the deaths of innocent civilians — both in Gaza and in Israel.”

Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts Receives the Medal of Honor

 

Published on Jul 21, 2014

President Obama presents the Medal of Honor to Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts in the East Room of the White House, July 21, 2014.

 

 

At a ceremony at the White House this afternoon, President Obama presented the Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Ryan M. Pitts for his unwavering courage in one of the fiercest battles of the Afghanistan war.

In the summer of 2008, when our forces in Afghanistan were stretched thin across isolated outposts, Ryan was serving alongside 48 American soldiers charged with using little resources to defend a post with significant vulnerabilities. Mountains stood sky-high on every side of the village of Wanat, diverting aerial surveillance and delaying the heavy equipment they needed for their defense.

In the pre-dawn darkness of one fateful July morning, while manning this small, unfinished base, Ryan and his fellow soldiers were attacked by 200 assailants who were determined to take their post. “Those 200 insurgents were firing from ridges and from the village and from trees,” President Obama said. “Down at the base, a vehicle exploded—scattering its missiles, back at our soldiers. It was, said a soldier, ‘hell on earth.’”

President Obama Signs a New Executive Order to Protect LGBT Workers

 

 

The President Signs an Executive Order on LGBT Workplace Discrimination

 

Published on Jul 21, 2014

President Obama signs an Executive Order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, July 21, 2014.

 

 

 

“Many of you have worked for a long time to see this day coming.”

 

Those were President Obama’s words to the audience in the East Room of the White House this morning, before he signed an Executive Order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

At the signing, the President explained how, because of their “passionate advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of [their] cause, our government — government of the people, by the people, and for the people — will become just a little bit fairer.”

What They’re Saying: President Obama Signs Executive Order on LGBT Workplace Equality

 

 

Earlier today, President Obama signed an Executive Order that prohibits federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Order also ensures that federal employees – who are already protected on the basis of sexual orientation – will now formally be protected from discrimination based on gender identity as well.

 

In response to the President’s actions today, many national organizations dedicated to LGBT equality, civil rights, and religious freedom expressed their support.

 

Anthony Romero, Executive Director, ACLU:

 

This is one of the most important actions ever taken by a president to eradicate LGBT discrimination from America’s workplaces. By signing this order, President Obama is building on a bipartisan tradition, dating back over 70 years, of barring discrimination without exception when taxpayer dollars are involved.

Barry Curtiss-Lusher, National Chair, and Abraham Foxman, National Director, Anti-Defamation League:

 

For nearly 50 years it has been illegal for federal contractors to discriminate in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. This action by President Obama continues his historic leadership in promoting LGBT rights and equality and moves our nation closer to full equality in the workplace.

Welcoming Congressional Action on Key National Security Tools

 

 

Today, Congress took an important step forward in making sure that we’re developing the capabilities necessary to make America safer.

 

As the President’s Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor, I welcome the Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee markup of the FY 2015 Defense Appropriations Act. Its ultimate passage would allow us to move forward on a number of priority national security initiatives, including the Counterterrorism Partnerships Fund (CTPF).

 

As President Obama announced during his West Point speech in May, this new fund will help us take the fight to terrorist organizations by strengthening the capacity of our friends on the frontlines. The CTPF presents a new, sustainable model for strategic engagement with our partners from South Asia to the Sahel. Because today’s principal terrorist threats no longer emanate from al-Qa’ida central leadership but from an evolving and decentralized set of actors, we need the flexibility to develop tailored regional solutions to terrorist groups that pose the greatest threat to the United States, wherever they are located.

 

These funds would allow us to train, equip, advise, and operationally enable our partners to counter them — ultimately leading us to rely less on U.S. forces and more on our frontline allies. The CTPF would also support long-term security sector and governance initiatives, because we know that our counterterrorism success over the long run ultimately depends on partnering with and developing professional and accountable security forces and supporting institutions.

 

I also applaud the inclusion of new authorities related to Syria that would allow us to more effectively partner with appropriately vetted members of the moderate Syrian armed opposition. Importantly, this train and equip mission could help us to better protect Syrian civilians, pressure the regime, and counter terrorist threats emanating from the country’s contested and ungoverned areas — including from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

 

In a turbulent and uncertain world, the Senate today took an important step forward in providing vital tools to help our military and counterterrorism professionals confront this challenge.
