Mr. Obama said there were “no winners” in the stalemate, and his anger reached its peak when he talked about the partisanship that he once pledged to tame.

“Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do,” he said. Turning to his legislative priorities, Mr. Obama said lawmakers also should work to “finish the job of fixing our broken immigration system.” The Senate has approved comprehensive immigration reform, but the Republican-led House has not.

“A majority of Americans think this is the right thing to do, and it’s sitting there, waiting for the House to pass it,” Mr. Obama said. “This can and should get done by the end of this year.”

He also urged Congress to complete a farm bill by the end of the year. Mr. Obama said these tasks can be completed “if our focus is on the American people.”
