  • Obama to set up deficit-reduction panel

    WASHINGTON. - House Republican leaders say President Barack Obama should do more than change his message when he delivers his State of the Union address, he should also change the course of his presidency. House Republican Leader John Boehner said Wednesday that Obama's proposal for a partial spending freeze is a good start, but he added that Obama should also abandon big spending proposals on health care, climate change and jobs.
