President Obama in a previously off-the-record interview with an Iowa newspaper said he believes a “grand bargain” on the deficit can be reached six months into his second term and that immigration reform can also be approved in 2013.
The Obama administration reversed course Wednesday and allowed theÂ Des Moines RegisterÂ to release an interview with the president that had previously been off the record. Obama gave the interview as he pursued the influential swing-state paper’s endorsement.
While much of the interview included nothing Obama has not said publicly, the president did speak openly about his hopes for a deficit deal, and the troubles he believes Republicans will have opposing immigration legislation.
“Weâ€™re going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business,” ObamaÂ said of a deficit-cutting bill.
Obama said “the second thing Iâ€™m confident weâ€™ll get done next year is immigration reform.”
