WH: ‘Washington Will Work Better If Obama Has His Way’

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said that under a Republican-led Congress, Washington will "work better," as long as President Obama has his way.

"Is there one thing you can say to American voters they're going to see that's different, given the message they sent on Tuesday?" MSNBC's Chris Jansing asked McDonough.

"They're going to see Washington working better if this president has his way," McDonough said. "And that's what he's going to do."

"How?" Jansing asked.

"Well, we're going to do it any number of ways," McDonough said.

This is the rhetoric of ‘reconciliation' coming from the White House.
