Today, I am announcing a few key parts of my plan. First, we will launch a massive effort to make public buildings more energy-efficient. Our government now pays the highest energy bill in the world. We need to change that. We need to upgrade our federal buildings by replacing old heating systems and installing efficient light bulbs. That won’t just save you, the American taxpayer, billions of dollars each year. It will put people back to work.
P.S.: My wife has on her smartphone Sound Hound, an app that recognizes songs on the radio and tells you what they are. She accidentally started it up while Obama's speech was playing in the background. Sound Hound quickly identified it as "State of the Union address."
