After fiscal crisis, Obama calls for talks on budget, immigration, farm bill
WASHINGTON Oct 17 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Thursday that "Americans are completely fed up with Washington" a day after the latest fiscal impasse was narrowly averted and called for talks with Congress on the budget, immigration and farm legislation.
Hours after he signed into law a hastily arranged bill to end a 16-day government shutdown and head off a debt default, Obama said events over the last two weeks had inflicted "completely unnecessary" damage on the U.S. economy.
