WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama says the way business is done in Washington must change.





In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama is telling Americans their frustration with politics is understandable. He's referring to the fiscal crisis that shut down the government and brought the U.S. close to default.

Obama says even with the crisis over, Republicans and Democrats won't agree on everything. But he says they should find areas of agreement. He's pushing Congress to act this year on a budget, a farm bill and an immigration overhaul.

In the Republican address, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says Obama's health care law is an affront to freedoms. He says its implementation has been a national embarrassment.

Cuccinelli is running for governor of Virginia.
