President Barack Obama on Tuesday chastised Congress — mainly Republicans — for moving quickly to end flight delays caused by sequestration while leaving the other major consequences of the sweeping budget cuts unaddressed.

Still, the president said he would not veto the short-term fix for those delays, which will give the Department of Transportation the authority to take money designed for airport repair and use it to end the furloughs of Federal Aviation Administration employees.

“You seem to suggest that somehow these folks over there have no responsibilities and that my job is to somehow get them to behave,” the president told ABC’s Jonathan Karl, who had asked whether he had any presidential “juice” left in the tank.
