I've got 12 months left to squeeze every ounce of change I can while I'm still in office. And that's what I intend to do.
We've done a lot of remarkable things together this year, and it's because of committed citizens like you that this country keeps moving forward. You keep proving the cynics wrong.
On January 12, I'll be giving my last State of the Union address. I want you to watch, and say you're ready to keep up the fight in 2016 -- because your voice matters just as much as mine does.
OFA is one of the groups getting people fired up to take action in 2016. Say you'll watch the State of the Union, and commit to taking action next year.
When we took office, we were losing nearly 750,000 jobs a month. But over the last 69 months, our businesses have created more than 13.7 million new jobs -- the longest streak of private-sector job growth on record -- and the unemployment rate is down to 5 percent.
For the first time more than 90 percent of Americans are now covered, and more than 17 million people have gained health insurance under Obamacare. Insurance companies can't discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions, or charge women more just for being women.
And America is now leading by example on climate change. The Clean Power Plan will cut carbon pollution from power plants by 32 percent by 2030. We've cut our oil imports by more than half, while doubling clean energy production from wind, solar, and geothermal -- creating steady sources of good jobs that can't be outsourced.
Even as our economy is growing, America has cut our carbon pollution overall more than any other advanced nation on Earth. And we just helped secure the most ambitious global climate agreement in history.
These are your accomplishments, and that's what I want to celebrate with you on January 12. As long as you're out there organizing, on whatever issue you're organizing around, America has a bright future ahead.
Let's lean into that in 2016. Add your name today to say you'll watch the State of the Union, and OFA will be in touch soon:
Thanks -- and happy New Year,
