WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama, in a brief statement at the White House Thursday, spoke about his domestic agenda after commenting on the situation in Syria.

"We have a lot of things left to do here in this government," the president said, citing improvements in education, in the job markets and in ensuring "every single agency [is], running the way it should, making sure that our constituents, the American people, are getting good service."

Obama added he would ask Cabinet secretaries to "streamline operations, cut out waste [and] improve performance," and said budget issues, the Affordable Care Act rollout and immigration issues would be discussed.
