Strong In Victory, Obama Warns Republicans Not To Play Games With Budget Deal

President Obama has a message for Republicans in Congress. The President warned the GOP not to play ideological games with the budget deal.

The President spoke about the budget agreement while addressing the 122nd Annual IACP Conference and Exposition in Chicago.

President Obama said:

I am pretty happy about that because it reflects our values, growing the economy and the middle-class by investing in things like education and job training that are needed and it keeps us safe by investing in our national security. It’s paid for responsibly in part with a measure to make sure hedge funds and private equity firms pay what they owe in taxes. It’s the right thing to do.

…..

I hope both parties come together to pass this agreement without delay. They’ve got a few days to do it. And I hope Congress gets right to work on spending bills to advance America’s priorities, and they don’t get sidetracked by ideological provisions that have no place in America’s budget process.

Republicans who oppose the deal will no doubt try to attach attacks on Planned Parenthood to the spending bills, but they have been warned. The country may have a budget deal, but if Republicans start playing games this president will veto their spending bills.

The President was cutting Republicans off at the pass. He isn’t about to let the dysfunction in the House sink a two-year deal that will finally end the chaos of crisis governing. The majority of Republicans in Congress hate the deal, but they have few options.

President Obama is at the height of his presidential powers, and there is little that the extremist elements in the Republican Congressional majority can do in the face of his latest overwhelming victory.
