The President said he wants to "win the future" using American innovation and education to rebuild America.

Part of that renovation is the President's unwavering commitment to alternative energy while still tackling America's huge deficit in a bipartisan way.

"So tonight, I am proposing that starting this year, we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years. This would reduce the deficit by more than $400-billion over the next decade, and will bring discretionary spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was President."

"So tonight, I challenge you to join me in setting a new goal: by 2035, 80% of America's electricity will come from clean energy sources. Some folks want wind and solar. Others want nuclear, clean coal, and natural gas. To meet this goal, we will need them all - and I urge Democrats and Republicans to work together to make it happen."
