Encouragement of STEM and future jobs

My daughter is doing a video project on what should be Obama's most important action as President. My belief is that it is securing more high paying jobs for Americans. In particular my daughter is going to focus on STEM (she is already doing a series of youtube broadcasts on STEM education in our state for her Broadcast Journalism class). In particular if encouraging STEM education is actually building a bridge to nowhere (or are our politicians pulling the rug out). Item number one being the lack of resistance to stapling Green Cards to PhD and even MS graduates in STEM.

Anyone have any thoughts?

2. FWIW...

I'm considered too expensive to hire for the amount of research funding available, at least in academia. If I had to give anyone advice, I'd say get a STEM background for a base of knowledge and future flexibility. Consider focusing on a career (that you like) that has people coming to you. A people-oriented, health-service type career. For example, people like their pets, so veterinarians are always in some kind of demand.
