“I’m hopeful that we’re going to hear from the president a willingness to reflect what the people spoke on Nov. 2, and that is, ‘Stop it,’” House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who is counting the days until he takes over as majority leader, told POLITICO.

“Stop the policy agenda you’ve been about over the last 20 months, and let’s go about seeing if we can return to a situation where we can see some [economic] growth prospects again,” he warned Obama.

“The hope is that all sides can agree that we need to focus on the have-to-do items, like funding the government while reducing spending and preventing a tax hike on every American taxpayer,” said Don Stewart, spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “Maybe we can have a discussion later on the ‘wanna-do’ items, but it’s now been a month since the election, and it’s time to focus.”
