Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue” to tame the soaring national debt and avert an ugly battle over the approaching “fiscal cliff,” House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday in a speech that offered a potential path to compromise in year-end budget negotiations.
With President Obama reelected and Republicans returned to a slightly smaller majority in the House, Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday’s election amounted to a plea from voters for the parties to lay down their weapons of the past two years and “do what’s best for our country.”
Let's hope that Barry Obama lays off his "angry black man" schtik long enough to entertain the idea of bipartisanship.
I doubt it, though.
Or, he may be too busy in the next few weeks yucking it up on The View or Jay Leno, etc. to actually do any work.
Still, let's at least hope this clown Obama is able to TRY and do some work before the end of the year.
