President Obama on the Steve Harvey Morning Show

   “The truth of the matter is, African American voters, young voters, progressive voters, Latino voters, they now vote at relatively high rates during presidential elections. But I bet a whole bunch of your listeners aren’t even thinking about this election coming up on Nov. 4. But this is really the last election in which I have the opportunity to get a Congress that will work with me [to get our progressive agenda done].

Back in 2010, folks didn’t vote. As a consequence, the tea party took over the Republican Party. We lost the House. And, although we’ve made a lot of progress on various issues since then, basically Congress has fought me every step of the way and it led to things like the shutdown and all kinds of negative consequences in terms of things like gun control that we couldn’t get done. So, we really need to have the kind of Congress that is serious about the issues that matter to folks and the responsibility is ultimately up on everybody’s who’s listening.

Folks like to complain, talk about Washington. But if only 45, 40 percent of the people are voting then it’s not surprising that Congress isn’t responsive. If people voted at the same rates during midterms as they did during presidential elections we would maintain Democratic control of the Senate . . . and so I need everybody listening to understand this is really, really important.

I need everybody to really pay attention to this thing. . . . but this is something where I’m just hoping, everybody who’s listening, says, “We’re going to give one last push so the president and the first lady have the opportunities to really use these last two years on our behalf.” It’s up to everybody who’s listening. It’s up to them to make that difference. It’s up to you.”
