GOP to Obama: Let's Work Together

Today, congressional leaders will head to the White House, where Republicans will urge President Obama to heed the message sent by the American people earlier this month: cut spending, stop all the tax hikes, and help create jobs now. In an op-ed published in today’s Washington Post, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) make clear that Republicans stand ready to work with President Obama and Democratic leaders on the people’s top priorities: “Republicans got the message voters have been delivering for more than a year. That’s why we made a pledge to America to cut spending, rein in government, and permanently extend the current tax rates so small-business owners won't get hit with a massive tax hike at the end of December. …

“While Americans have been asking ‘where are the jobs?’ for more than two years, our friends across the aisle have clung for too long to the liberal wish list, including a job-killing health-care law, a ‘cap-and-trade’ national energy tax and an out-of-control spending spree. The November elections represented a wholesale rejection of these policies.

“Now we have a real chance to move away from the misplaced priorities of the past two years and work together on common-sense proposals that will build a foundation for the economic rebound we all want. …
“Together, we can focus on the things Americans want us to do - not on what government wants Americans to accept. The clock may be winding down on this session of Congress, but there is still time to do the right thing. If President Obama and Democratic leaders put forward a plan during the lame-duck session to cut spending and stop the tax hikes on all Americans, they can count on a positive response from Republicans.”
