USA: Obama and McConnell want to avoid political paralysis

The promise of understanding is now in Barack Obama's mouth and Mitch McConnell.

After the u.s. midterm elections which gave total control of Congress to the Republicans, the President, a Democrat, and the future leader of the Republican majority in the Senate know they have to be compromises.

"As President, I have the responsibility to make this ' village ' work. So, to all those who voted for I want you to know that heard them. For the two-thirds who chose not to participate in the process, also I'm listening, "said Obama, in a reaction to the heavy defeat Democrat.

The Republican leader in the upper House, Mitch McConnell has the weight of responsibility now to live up to the expectations of the voters who gave the opposition victory not only in the Senate but also in the House of representatives. "I think my attitude about it all boils down to confidence, but confidence with verification. Let's see! The American people spoke, they gave us a divided government. The question to the President, the speaker of the House of representatives and myself is what are we going to do with this? "

The Republicans now have the power to complicate the President's agenda.

Friday's scheduled a meeting of party leaders at the White House.
