Obama To GOP: 'Stop Just Hatin' All The Time'

During a speech Wednesday in Kansas City, Mo., Obama called out Republicans in Congress for spending more time blaming him for problems than helping solve them.

“Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time … let’s get some work done together,” Obama directed at the GOP during his speech addressing the economy.

“Do not boo, vote! Booing doesn’t help -- voting helps," Obama continued after telling the crowd of the House Republicans' plan to sue him over his use of executive actions to implement the Affordable Care Act. "Instead of suing me for doing my job, I want Congress to do its job and make life a little better for ... Americans."

The House is set to vote Wednesday on whether to authorize the lawsuit, The Hill reported.
