Barack Obama: ‘Education is the greatest job of all time’

admin 0

President Barack Obama will use his annual State of the Union address Tuesday to outline his vision for the next four years as he prepares to leave office.

“We will return to the world of tomorrow, a world of opportunity,” Obama will say, adding: “The challenge before us is the most important and enduring, the greatest task of all.”

In his speech, Obama will lay out his vision to rebuild America’s economy and prepare our children for the world.

“The world is more prosperous, more democratic, more free,” Obama said.

“Our economy is stronger.

Our schools are more educated.

And our nation is stronger, more united, and better positioned to lead the world in the 21st century.”

The president will call for new initiatives to promote American interests, such as the reinstatement of American leadership in Asia and Europe.

And he will call on Congress to raise taxes to ensure that the government has enough money to pay for vital programs like Social Security and Medicare.

But Obama will also say that “education is the great equalizer, and I will fight to make it the greatest employer of the next generation.”

The speech comes just days after the president announced a $1.4 trillion stimulus package, which included $600 billion to help states and cities with a wide range of programs.

It was one of the largest such packages in U.S. history.

In his State of The Union address, Obama called for investing in education, infrastructure, and job creation, as well as ensuring that American workers have the skills they need to compete and thrive in the global economy.

“Every day, the United States invests more than $3 trillion in our children’s education, with nearly two-thirds going to public schools,” Obama wrote.

“For all those who can’t get a high school diploma, or don’t have the qualifications, or can’t afford to send their children to a good school, we invest billions of dollars in helping them.

“And every day, I tell my children that education is the best job of our generation. “

I promise to continue to invest in it, to ensure the next generations have the best of both worlds, and to work to make sure every child in America gets the education they need and deserve.” “

And every day, I tell my children that education is the best job of our generation.

I promise to continue to invest in it, to ensure the next generations have the best of both worlds, and to work to make sure every child in America gets the education they need and deserve.”

The $1 trillion stimulus plan is a response to the Great Recession and Obama’s call for a new economic order.

It will be paid for by raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans, as long as the federal government can prove that the plan will be offset by economic growth.

The plan also includes a new federal investment bank, called the Recovery Act, that will be used to provide $1 billion in new tax breaks to help companies raise money for the economy.

Obama will announce his plan Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.

EST.

The Obama administration has been working to reach a deal with Congress on raising the federal debt ceiling before the end of the month.

But some Republicans have been trying to prevent that.

The White House on Wednesday said that negotiations have not yet begun, and that it is too soon to say if a deal will be reached.

The president also will outline his plans to reduce the deficit and improve the country’s health care system, with an emphasis on preventing more deaths from preventable diseases.

“By 2020, we will have cut our debt by $1,100 trillion and put in place a stronger economy and more security for our children and grandchildren,” Obama says in his speech.

“To be sure, this debt will be repaid.

But I know it will be done in a way that provides relief to the people of this country, reduces the deficit, and keeps our promise to the American people to rebuild our economy and our nation.”

In addition to raising taxes, Obama is expected to also propose a massive increase in the minimum wage and an increase in taxes on millionaires.

The increase in minimum wage would amount to a 10 percent increase over four years, the White House says.

“A living wage for a family of four should mean $25 an hour by 2022, $30 an hour in 2024, $35 an hour for everyone by 2025, and $40 an hour at the very least,” Obama writes.

“This is an ambitious goal, but we can do it.

We will make our economy work for all of us.

It means more hours for everybody, more good-paying jobs, and more investment in education and infrastructure.”

Obama also will say that he will work to pass an overhaul of the tax code.

“I know the tax codes of other countries are complicated, and they’re not always fair.

But we’re going to work with Congress to reform the tax system,” Obama is quoted as saying.

“It will be simpler, fairer
