The Daily Quote

"[The re-opening today of a shuttered former GM factory in Wilmington, Delaware to produce long-range, plug-in, electric hybrid vehicles] is proof positive that our efforts to create new jobs, invest in a clean energy economy and reduce carbon pollution are working. We are putting Americans back to work and reigniting a new Industrial Revolution that is paramount for the economic success of this country.”
