Obama called achieving "bipartisan solutions"


After achieving a landslide victory in the polls Obama called on Wednesday to key Democratic and Republican leaders in both houses of Congress, and asked them to put the interests "of the people and the economy" of the United States ahead of their "interests partisan. " Looking back on the agenda for the remainder of 2012, Barack Obama reiterated his commitment to "find bipartisan solutions to reducing our deficit in a balanced way, tax cuts for middle class families and small businesses, and to create jobs, "the White House said.



But, before a divided Congress, most experts predicted to continue the fighting and political paralysisin Washington.

The so-called " tax cliff "is, on one hand, on the expiry at the end of the year, certain unemployment benefits and tax cuts from the era of George W. Bush and payroll taxes.

On the other, it also meansautomatic cuts of up to 800,000 million dollars from next January onpublic spending , including the Pentagon, and the possibility of analternative tax , and higher, to about 26 million households in the middle class . During a press conference, in which he took no questions, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican John Boehner , hinted that his party would weigh one tax increase in exchange for Obama "is willing to cut spending "and reform social welfare programs , "which are the main drivers of our debt."




"Let's find the common ground that we avoided," Boehner said in a conciliatory tone , and suggested that Congress could begin to agree a deal in the short legislative session before year end. Earlier, also the leader of the Democratic majority in the Senate , Harry Reid, urged Congress to take steps to avoid the "tax gap", and considered that, despite the objections of Republicans, they should include a tax increase "for the richest of the rich" .




Experts have warned that without an agreed solution to reduce the deficit, the country could fall into a new recessionDespite the call for unity that Obama has done, few expect the opposition agreed to help with solutions to issues such as deficit reduction, the level of debt or tax reform . still awaiting some races in states like Florida, for the incoming 113th legislative session Republicans retain control of the House , but the Democrats managed to scrape some wins. For now The results point to 233 seats to the Republicans (formerly 241) and 193 for Democrats (formerly 194), with 10 seats still unallocated.




In the Senate, Democrats are expected to increase its seats to 53 (formerly 51) to 45 for the Republicans (formerly 47), which last night saw his chances fade regain the Senate. In that House will remain two independent members. Predictably, will remain intact health reform of 2010 , the major political victory for Obama and will come into full force in 2014. John Fortier, director of Project Democracy Bipartisan Policy Center, predicted a scenario in which are likely to continue, as in the last two years, " shocks on budgets, the debt ceiling, and other deadlines . " On Tuesday night, the Republican minority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, showed a less conciliatory than Boehner, saying that " voters have not supported the failures and excesses of the president's first term . " the defeat of the binomial Romney-Ryan at the polls will force the GOP to adjust their electoral strategies in a country with a growing ethnic and cultural diversity, but also increasingly divided on ideological lines, according to Republican strategists like Ed Rogers. The Republican Party, still dominated by white men and old, will have to consider how to respond to the new political reality the country, Rogers said the public radio station NPR .
