Hey, everyone. I’m Kris Allen from American Idol1, and I’m here to introduce my idol, Carl Azuz.

An awesome2 introduction to the most awesome day of the week. Thank you, Kris. It’s Friday, I am Carl Azuz, and you’re tuned3 in to CNN Student News!

The midterms are over, but before we start talking about the 2012 elections, before we even start talking about the next Congress, this Congress still has some work to do. And it will do it as a lame4 duck. That refers to the time between an election and when the new Congress is sworn into session. President Obama wants to get together with congressional leaders and talk about what they can do during this lame duck session. What happens when that new Congress starts in January, when Republicans will have a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives? We turn to Sandra Endo, who now gives us an idea.

After a major midterm election blow, an admission from the president: there needs to be a change in focus.

In the rush of activity, sometimes we lose track of, you know, the ways that we connected with folks that got us here in the first place. Now, I’m not recommending for every future president that they take a shellacking like I did last night.

At the polls, voters spoke5 clearly; they’re not happy.

I’ve got to take direct responsibility for the fact that we have not made as much progress as we need to make.

Now, the president and the newly Republican-controlled House will have to find some way to work together. But an emboldened6 GOP already wants to repeal7 some of the president’s policies.

I believe that the health care bill that was enacted8 by the current Congress will kill jobs in America, ruin the best health care system in the world, and bankrupt our country.

Choosing the president over your constituents9 is not a good strategy.

And if the economy doesn’t turn around, it’ll mean serious trouble for the president come 2012.

I’ve got to do a better job, just like everybody else in Washington does. We’re not going to rule out ideas because they’re Democrat10 or Republican. We want to just see what works.

The first matter at hand for Congress is whether or not to extend the Bush era tax cuts. It’s already proven to be divisive along party lines, so finding that common ground may be elusive11. In Washington, Sandra Endo for CNN Student News
