In a statement at the White House, the President said an overwhelming majority of Americans support a reasonable, balanced approach to deficit reduction.
Obama accused many Republicans of refusing to listen to the "voices of reason and compromise."
The super-committee finished its business with a statement acknowledging failure.
The 12-member, bipartisan panel was charged with finding more than one-trillion dollars in spending cuts over ten years.
Republicans and Democrats on the super-committee were stuck in familiar territory, unable to agree on tax hikes for the wealthy or cuts in Social Security and Medicare.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has warned of devastating consequences.

President Obama threatened to veto any attempt to get rid of the triggered cuts.
He said there will not be any "easy off ramps" to deficit reduction.
