Obama hopes for progress after conflict with house leader

By Justin Reis

WASHINGTON--In August House Republican leader John Boehner encouraged President Obama to terminate his entire economic team for not pulling the nation out of a recession.

In addition, the team was given the responsibility to create more jobs. Obama and Boehner must now get along after the president attacked the republican leader eight times in one speech, according to USA Today.

Many questions must be resolved surrounding tax cuts for the wealthy, republicans reducing spending and who will be challenging Obama in 2012. USA Today reported, Democrats and Republicans in the White House and Congress can resolve the issues "in a bipartisan fashion".

"I do believe there is hope for civility," Obama said when republicans gained 60 seats for a house majority.

USA Today reported, Obama believes there is hope for progress.
