and congressional leaders sat down for a working lunch today at the white house, republicans came to the table with an appetite for change. ♪ after sweeping wins in tuesday's midterm elections that will give them control of the house and senate. >> we'llwçc:6a see whether we ck with the president. i hope so. that's what he says. we'll find out. >> i am not going to judge ideas based on whether they're democratic or republican. i'll judge them on whether or not they work. >> reporter: analysts warn common ground will be difficult to find. >> you simply can't look at this situation and where we've been for the last four years and be optimistic about the two sides setting aside difference and coming to large-scale compromise. >> reporter: already the battlelines have been drawn over health care. >> he needs to make good on his promise. >> reporter: and an immigration reform rally outside the white house is a reminder that both sides are split on the controversial issue with the president suggesting he will act on his own using executive
order, if necessary, for immigration reform. >> it's not a threat. the president made a promise he would act on immigration reform before the end of the year. >> we expressed for him if more executive actions are taken that would make it difficult for us always to work together. >> reporter: the heat clearly on the president and leaders from both parties to find some ways to break the gridlock. again, it's important to point out today's lunch included a briefing on the u.s.-led fight on isis on the same bay that the president doubled the amount of troops on the ground in iraq. this week's midterm election brings new faces to washington. >> but will it do anything to break the washington gridlock? joining us now from washington is meet the press moderator chuck todd. thanks for taking the time to talk to us. >> happy to do it. >> congress and the president have not been able to agree at all during president obama's second term. now it's republicans controlling
both chambers. will that gridlock continue for the next two years? >> i think it depends on each side handle the immigration issue and the health care issue as jay gray pointed out. think of them as political nuclear bombs as far as what the other side considers. if the republicans spend the first month or two just trying to repeal the health care law, chip away at it, that -- the white house would see that as an antagonistic move. republicans believe if the president decides to move on his own on executive action, they would view that as a hostile antagonistic move. that's the way you could see gridlock coming back in a hurry. do they agree to pause both of those issues for a while and leave an opening to do other things on taxes and jobs and things like that? that's the open question. i think we -- that's what we'll have to find out.

smaller city america and the slower economic growth versus urban america and the ushen suburbs which is seeing much faster economic growth out of this recovery. i think that's why you have this feeling in the american public that the economy is still a problem. >> a real disparity on how people are feeling depending on where they live. chuck todd, always nice to talk to you. be sure to watch "meet the press" this sunday morning at 10:30 on nbc 10. the ebola scare in texas has subsided for now. as of midnight it's been 21 days since anyone there last had contacted with anyone with the virus. 21 days is the incubation period for ebola. health officials were monitoring 177 people in the state after a liberian man died in a dallas hospital and two nurses became infected. nbc 10 got a behind-the-scenes look facility of where the u.s. army is waging war against
