President Obama Pushes For Wind Energy In Iowa

President Obama has been on a three day bus tour of Iowa, and in Oskaloosa, he shared how the wind energy industry has become an even bigger source of jobs. In Iowa alone, 20% of the state’s electricity now comes from the wind. Obama told the crowd in Oskaloosa, “The wind industry now supports 7,000 jobs here in Iowa–75,000 jobs across the country. These jobs aren’t a fad, these are good jobs, and a source of pride that we need to fight for. And if Governor Romney understood what you’ve been doing he’d know that we’d used to have to import most of the parts that were used for wind turbines. They’re now being made here in America, by American workers, in American factories.”
