Speaking from the White House earlier today, President Obama urged Republican adversaries in Congress to embrace a new spirit of cooperation moving forward from the near escape of government default. In addition to addressing the end of the 16-day government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis, the president proposed plans developing a long-term budget, a new farm bill, and immigration overhaul.
“You don’t like a particular policy, or a particular president, then argue for your position,” Mr. Obama said in his statement. “Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don’t break it.”
