Lee: ‘Obama Is Not a Despot,’ He Has to Negotiate with Congress
President Obama needs to display a willingness to negotiate if he wants to reopen the government and deal with the upcoming debt-limit deadline, Senator Mike Lee says. “He’s not a dictator, he’s not a despot — he does have to deal with Congress,” the Utah Republican said on Fox News on Monday morning.
Lee welcomed the president’s offer that he would come to the table and discuss changes to Obamacare. He expressed some cautious hope that President Obama might be “coming to his senses” over the law’s flaws and lack of readiness.
