obama1 400WASHINGTON: Newly re-elected President Barack Obama offered on Friday to deal with Republicans to avert a looming US fiscal calamity but insisted a tax increase for the very rich must be part of the bargain.

 

Obama reminded Republicans that his approach to avoiding steep tax hikes and spending cuts due in January, which could trigger another recession, had just won the backing of Americans at the polls.

 

He spoke just hours after John Boehner, the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, had repeated his party's commitment not to raise anyone's tax rates as part of a deal to address the fiscal crisis.

 

In his first event at the White House since beating Republican Mitt Romney in Tuesday's election, Obama called on Congress to work with him to produce a plan and invited congressional leaders to meet with him next week.
