Wind Energy Will Be Obama Focus Today In Iowa
From Washington Post
President Obama will continue his three-day swing across Iowa Tuesday with a new attack against Republican Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, over their opposition to extending tax credits for the wind energy industry.
Across a landscape where wind turbines are nearly as common as corn fields, Obama will push Congress to extend the production tax credit for wind companies. In Iowa alone, the industry employs more than 7,000, according to the Obama campaign; across the country the number is 37,000.
