Biden tells GOP his hopes, gets stiff response from McCarthy

After the president hosted each party's top two lawmakers, chief Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer came out of The White House enthused. There was goodwill in the room. The president says he'd like both parties to join forces on keeping the government open, helping you crane and avoiding a freight rail strike. And we're going to find other areas of common ground I hope because the American people want us to work together. The top House Republican Kevin McCarthy says they also want something else. I think America likes to check and balance, saying that's why Democrats lost the house. And the man had lined to be its next speaker is serving notice. Come January. I think the administration got a indication is going to be different. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
