Obama: Put the Shutdown Behind Us

1

obama3As it appears the weeks of stalemate are coming to a close, President Obama briefly addressed the press room on last night, lauding the Senate-approved bill which would end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling but which is still waiting for a House vote.

He pledged to sign the agreement and re-open the government “immediately” after the compromise passes, saying he’s “convinced Democrats and Republicans can work together to make progress for America.” Congress has “got to get out of the habit of governing by crisis,” Obama said before leaving the podium.

“Isn’t this going to happen again in a few months?” a reporter called after him.

“No!” he shouted back.

The president will address the nation again at 10:35 a.m. today.

  1. HOWEVER:

    In front of us is $17 TRILLION in national debt and a $785 BILLION Federal budget deficit.

    Obama wants to put that behind us, too!
