BARACK OBAMA: My message to Republicans is join us and get on board. If you're mad at me for helping people, join me and we can do it together. We will do it together. I am happy to share the credit.
You're mad at me for doing some things to raise the minimum wage. Letâ€™s pass a law. Letâ€™s give America a raise. If you're mad at me for taking executive action for women to find out that they're not getting treated fairly in the work ways, let's do it together. You can share the credit. Youâ€™re worried about me fixing a broken immigration system, let's hold hands and make sure that the country continues to be a nation of immigrants. I want to work with you.
But you have to try to deliver something. Anything.
They don't do anything. Except block me. And call me names. It can't be that much fun. It would be so much more fun if they said, let's do something together. If they were more interested in growing the economy for you and the issues that you are talking about instead of trying to mess with me, we would be doing a lot better. That what's make this country great, when we work together. That is the American way.
