Top Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett gave a hint of what's to come in President Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, saying that “getting our fiscal house in order” was one of his top priorities.

Jarrett also said that the president would be willing to talk to Republicans about the Simpson-Bowles plan, which called for tough measures to help reign in the national debt, which reached $16 trillion this week.

“If the Republicans want to come to the table and talk about Simpson-Bowles, the president is ready to do that,” she said. “Absolutely.”

 

Previewing the speech, Jarrett said: "As you will see both on Thursday and throughout the rest of this campaign, getting our fiscal house in order is a definite priority of the president."
