    President Obama is speaking.

    "Democrats and Republicans in the House still have an important vote to take," he says. But when it passes the House, he will sign it "immediately."

    "I'll have more to say about this tomorrow," he says, acknowledging upcoming budget negotiations. "We now have an opportunity to focus on a budget that is sensible, that is fair."

    He also stresses the need to move on a long-lingering farm bill and comprehensive immigration reform package.

      Now they want respect too?
      House GOPers not happy POTUS didn't wait to speak until after they voted. They consider it a "respect" issue.

      if i remember correctly, that's usually EARNED.
