Hoyer: No ¿complicit Congress¿ For Obama

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is pushing back against the notion that a Democratic Congress would roll over for Obama.

“I don’t think he will find a complacent, complicit Congress that George Bush confronted during the first six years of his term,” Hoyer said in an interview with the New York Observer.

“There may be disagreements and differences, as you would surely expect.”

Hoyer, however, did not predict any major clashes with a potential Obama administration.

In the interview, Hoyer predicted that both Obama and the Congressional Democrats would focus on passing children’s health care, closing the military prison in Guantanamo, tackling economic deficits and protecting the Constitutional rights of Americans.

“It’s going to be largely an administration focused mainly on the future,” he said.
