Subject: Pool report #2

Pool gathered in the Roosevelt Room at11:33 a.m for the tribal, State and local energy roundtable. Your pooler couldn't get a good view of what was happening, but when the pool entered the room there was still general chatter among officials. POTUS entered the room at 11:40am and went arundel the table greeting officials.

Remarks at 11:41am : please cross reference against transcript/audio

We're going to work to help the United States achieve true energy dominance and that's what's happening. We've made so much progress with respect to energy just in the last 4 months. It's been an incredible journey. We've learned a lot. We're here to talk about how we can create new prosperity for our citizens by unlocking vast treasures of energy reserves which we have.. Far more than anyone understood. I'm proud to have such a large gathering of tribal leaders here at the White House. I look forward to more government to government consultations with tribal leaders about the issues important to Indian country. We love Indian country right? Many of your lands have rich natural resources that stand to benefit your people immensely. These untapped resources can help you... Improve your communities and create jobs, jobs like you've never seen before. All you want is the freedom to use them and that's been the problem...

For too long the federal government has put up restricts and regulations that put this energy wealth out of reach, just totally out of reach. It's been really restricted, the development itself has been restricted and vast amounts of deposits of coal and other resources have been taken out of your hands and were going to have that changed.

These infringements on tribal sovereignty are deeply unfair to native Americans and Native American communities who have been denied access to the energy and wealth that they have on their own lands. Many of our states have also been denied access to the energy resources their lands that could bring greater wealth to their people and to our whole nation.

Today's conversation is a chance for these state, local and tribal leaders to discuss how we can cooperate and support them in unleashing these domestic energy reserves.

I'm confident that working together we can usher in a golden age of American energy dominance.

POTUS then spoke a bit about healthcare:

Yesterday we had a tremendous meeting. The Republicans senators met on Healthcare and the meeting went really well.

We're talking about a great great form of Healthcare. Obamacare is dying, it's essentially dead....It's been a headache for everybody, it's been a nightmare for many and we're looking at a health-care that will be a fantastic tribute to your country. A Healthcare that will take care of people finally for the right reasons and also at the right cost. It will be a tremendous reduction in cost from what Obamacare is.

The Republicans senator had a really impressive meeting yesterday at the WH. We had close to 50 of them... I think we're going to get ay least very close and get it over the line. It was a great feeling in that room.

It will be far better than Obamacare and much less expensive for the people and also much less expensive for the country.

I think this has the chance to be a great health-care at a reasonable cost. People can save a lot of money. All of the bad parts of Obamacare are gone essentially.

This will be something really special if we can get it done....Hopefully we'll have it soon.

Remarks finish at 11:48 am and the pool was escorted out of the room.
