FEATURE – President Obama And Secretary Vilsack Tour Iowa

INTRO: President Barrack Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack toured Iowa to hear the economic concerns of residents and to tell them about the importance and potential of rural America.

 

Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.

 

Barrack Obama, President: We’ve got small business owners here. We have farmers. We have ranchers. Public servants. Clean energy entrepreneurs. And community organizations from all across rural America. And I’m here because I want to hear from you. And my cabinet wants to hear from you.

 

Tom Vilsack, Agriculture Secretary: You know this is the greatest place in the world to be an entrepreneurial, smart, creative young person, because you can be the mayor of your town in your early thirties. You don’t have to wait to be sixty years old to accomplish something. You can accomplish it sooner.

 

Riley Pagett, National FFA President: To shake his hand and hear him talk about American agriculture and the importance of rural America was just something that all of us today in these jackets hold so true to our hearts.

 

Melissa Gentz, Student , Northern Iowa Community College: We want a future. This is our country. This is important. We want to stay here in rural Iowa where we love it. We can’t do that if we can’t make a living.

 

Vilsack: We are going to get through this difficult time. We will emerge stronger and better and we will continue to be what we were meant to be, which is that beacon of hope around the world.
