Biden vows to work with Republicans who have ‘good’ ideas, but not on some issues

President Biden vowed Thursday to work with Republicans who have “good” ideas, but listed several issues that he considers non-negotiable.

Biden made the comments during a Democratic National Committee event in Washington, D.C. following Tuesday’s midterm election, which he says fared well for Democrats.

He said that while he’s prepared to work with Republicans, he also said that the American people want Republicans to work with him.

“Regardless of what the final tally showed, I’m prepared to work with Republicans, but the American people have made it clear they expect Republicans to work with me as well,” Biden said. “And folks, I’ll always be open to any good ideas, others, Democrat or Republican, to move the country forward.”

The comments came as the balance of power in Congress remained undecided.

But Biden said there are several issues on which he’s not willing to compromise with Republicans.

“I’ve also made it really clear that if Republicans try to repeal the power we just gave Medicare to reduce prescription drug costs, I will veto does not happen if Republicans try to walk away from the historic commitment we just made to deal with the climate crisis. I will not let that happen,” Biden said.

Biden also said that “we should be looking at tax cuts for working people and middle class people.”
