Here's the rest of the talking points:
â¢ The President's speech will touch on the domestic issues the American people care most about, including health care, energy, education, and immigration.o The President will present bold new proposals on health care and energy.
o The President will continue to insist that schools provide opportunity for rich and poor alike.
o The President will talk about immigration in a visionary way that should unite both parties.
â¢ The President is proposing a standard deduction for health insurance that will benefit more than 100 million Americans. The President is proposing to reshape the health care system so it's responsive to individuals' needs and preferences.o Many companies only allow their employees to choose their health care plan once a year during open enrollment. Meanwhile, if consumers want to buy a cell phone, they get options every day. The President believes our health care system should be as responsive to individual needs as our other consumer marketplaces.
â¢ The President's theme on energy will be releasing the marketplace to expand the use of renewable and alternative fuels. The United States should lead the world in producing renewable and alternative energy sources that will help our economy grow while also cleaning our environment.
â¢ It's clear that the United States strategy and operations in Iraq can only be sustained and achieved with the support of the American people and with a level of bipartisanship in Congress. Since the President announced the new way forward last week, we have seen violence against Americans â but we have also seen important actions by the Iraqis on military, political, and economic fronts. The Iraqis are taking action against both Sunni insurgents and Shia militias.
