Earlier this week, we have something, that was never done here at the White House – we had a Twitter Town Hall. I have also my first live-Tweet as President. The questions at the Town Hall from the country and covered all kinds of topics — from jobs and the economy to education and energy.
Many people also different versions of another question submitted. First of all, she would say that our policy has grown so contentious. Then questions she would, if both parties in Congress will come together for the people, they elected?
This is a really important question, and it goes to the heart of a debate of that we have in this country - and that is the debate over how, that address our deficits and debt.
Well, there are of course real differences in approach. I believe we need a balanced approach. This means that on issues in our national programs and our defense programs. It means, such as the challenges in programs such as Medicare, so that we can enhance these programs and protect them for future generations. And it means that on issues in the code issues for tax credits and deductions for the richest Americans.
But I also know that the Republicans and Democrats not at eye-level on a number of issues displayed. And so, we continue to work to bridge over the weekend to these gaps.
The good news is that we agree on some of the big things. We agree with that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt, we finally need to get our fiscal house in order. We agree that to do this, both sides need to step outside their comfort zones and make some political victims. And we agree, that we simply can't afford by default on our national commitments for the first time in our history; that we the full faith and credit of the United States of America to maintain
A recovery is still fragile and is not produce all of the jobs we need, is the last thing we can afford, the usual partisan play in Washington. Congress through our fiscal house in order will, to focus that I have already proposed a stronger position on some of the job-creating measures such as if you people to work rebuilding America's infrastructure, to reform our patent system so that our innovators and entrepreneurs have a greater incentive to new products to generate or college for families make affordable. And companies that holding back due to the uncertainty about the possibility of a breach of contract by the U.S. Government can have more confidence to invest and create jobs.
I know that we can do this. We can our fiscal challenge. That is, the American people here what sent us to do. You send us here to connect our problems on the road. This is exactly what they don't like about Washington. She sent us here to work. She sent us here to get things done.
Currently we have an extraordinary - and extremely rare--opportunity to progress in such a way that ensures that our Government live within its means, that is basis for the future of our economy on a sounder, and invested in things, the we in the coming years successfully. And I am confident that we rise to the moment, and this opportunity for all Americans, and the future, we have in common. Thanks everyone, and have a great weekend.
