WASHINGTON (October 19, 2013)--The way business is done in Washington must change, President Barack Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address.
Mr. Obama told Americans their frustration with politics is understandable in the aftermath of the fiscal crisis that shut down the government and brought the U.S. close to default.
Mr. Obama says even though the crisis is over, Republicans and Democrats won't agree on everything.
But he said they should find areas of agreement.
He's pushing Congress to act this year on a budget, a farm bill and an immigration overhaul.
In the Republican address, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said Mr. Obama's health care law is an affront to freedoms the Founding Fathers fought for.
He says its implementation has been a national embarrassment.
Cuccinelli is running for governor of Virginia.
