Meet the Press | December 02, 2012
>> the president said on election night, you voted for politics, not action as usual. you're saying what we can expect from republicans. what can we expect from the president to break that cycle?
>> a willingness to sit down and explore what the best way to get through this is that's in the interest of the american people . not just now, but for future generations. again, we've been very clear about what investments we need, what savings we can do, how we're going to pay for that and how to make sure we're protecting the american economy from a broad tax increase on middle class americans.
