The day after midterm elections, in which his party suffered heavy losses and Republicans seized the Senate, President Obama said he’s willing to work with the new Republican-led Congress to find ground over the next two years.
But the President also made it clear he will use the power of the pen…and the veto…if need be. Incoming Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said hopes Congress can work with President Obama, but has concerns over veto showdowns that could leave the government divided. In his news conference Wednesday, President Obama also touched on his plead to act on immigration by the end of the year, Ebola crisis funding and working with Congress on a new authorization to use military force against ISIS.
