There are 80 members in the Assembly, representing an approximately equal number of constituents, with each district having a population of at least 420,000.

David Gregory asked Waters if it would be possible for the president to take on an ambitious role in working on job creation in Congress, given the recent partisan fights over the debt ceiling.
