Reich: Obama is too willing to compromise with GOP
Ex-Labor Secretary Robert Reich says Obama needs to push his agenda, compromise less with GOP
By The Associated Press

JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) ' Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says President Barack Obama needs to be more aggressive in confronting Republicans and should use the power of his office to move public opinion.

Speaking Thursday on the Iowa Public Television program, "Iowa Press," Reich said Obama has been too willing to compromise with House Republicans. He says many Democrats want the president to push for his believes before bargaining with Republicans.

He says the mood in Washington has never been more partisan, and that the 2012 election campaign is already under way.

Reich says the nation could slip back into a recession and that Washington should focus more on creating jobs than reducing the deficit.

Reich was in Iowa to make speech Wednesday at the University of Iowa.
