The head of the GOP rejects charges that Republicans have refused to work with President Barack Obama.

Speaking Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said that on issues ranging from the economy to health care to the environment, the GOP has made its positions clear.

But, he says, ideas put on the table by Republicans have been "summarily rejected" by the Democrats.

Steele says that GOP leaders "couldn't even get a meeting with the president."

Steele says he thinks voters are tired of the way Democrats, who control the White House and Congress, are running the federal government.

He predicts an "unprecedented wave" of voter dissatisfaction will give his party control of the House, and possibly the Senate, after next month's midterm elections.
