I am more optimistic about the future of America than ever before.
How could I not be -- after all that we've achieved together? When I took office, we faced the worst recession in 80 years, but we fought our way back. We've seen deficits come down, our auto industry set new records, unemployment reach eight-year lows, and our businesses create 15 million new jobs.
After a century of trying, we declared that health care in America is not a privilege for a few; it's a right for everybody. We've doubled our clean energy production, and brought nearly 200 nations together around a climate agreement that could protect our children from a climate that's beyond saving. Through diplomacy, we shut down Iran's nuclear weapons program.
With your help, we put policies in place to support students with loans, reign in Wall Street's worst excesses, and protect consumers from fraud. And through countless acts of quiet courage, America learned that love is love, and marriage equality is now a reality across the land.
People like you believed we could change this country for the better. So many of you had never been involved in organizing, but you picked up phones and hit the streets, and used the internet in amazing new ways -- and together, we made progress happen.
OFA supporters are some of the best organizers on the planet, and I am so proud of all the change that you made possible. Time and again, you've picked me up. And I hope sometimes I picked you up, too.
Through every victory and every setback, I've insisted that change is never easy, and never quick; that we wouldn't meet all of our challenges in one term, or one presidency, or even in one lifetime. By so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we started this work together. But there is more work to do.
Our work is not done -- say you'll continue to push for change with OFA:
