President Obama Wasn't Joking on the Campaign Trail
House Speaker John Boehner has suggested his willingness to work with the president on finding new revenues -- political jargon for raising taxes.
"And a stronger, healthier economy means more Americans working and more revenues - which is what the president is seeking," Boehner said last week in a press conference.
Obama offered a similar gesture of compromise on Wednesday as he said he was open to new ideas and that he wouldn't slam the door in anyone's face.
"I believe this is solvable," Obama said. "I think that fair-minded people can come to an agreement that does not cause the economy to go back into recession, that protects middle class families."-- Written by Joe Deaux in New York. >Contact by Email. Follow @JoeDeaux
