The people have spoken and the election results show support for President Obama and his policies. It is now time for the Republican-controlled House of Representatives' leadership to show the ability to compromise on the critical issues facing our country: upholding the safety net for those less fortunate, health care as passed and later upheld by the Supreme Court, improvements to infrastructure and global warming.
