Many areas are still dealing with flooding, even as snow and sleet start to replace the rain. Some of the local major rivers are above flood stage and still rising. The good news is, many of the others have crested and will start to fall. The snow and sleet will continue through much of the day, before wrapping up tonight. Most areas will see several inches of accumulation. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has a question for Congress: Why can't House Republicans be more like their mates in the Senate?
In economic speeches across the country, Obama is playing one chamber against the other, praising Senate Republicans for being open to cooperation and criticizing House Republicans for doing the opposite.
It's a theme Mr. Obama uses to argue he's the one focused on the economy as he prepares for fiscal clashes this fall with Congress.
In the Senate, some Republicans joined Democrats in supporting an immigration bill Obama sorely wants. And the Senate struck a deal to approve the president's nominations to key posts after months of logjam.
But Mr. Obama and the GOP-controlled House staunchly disagree over proposals to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government to avert a shutdown.
