WASHINGTON — Resurgent Republicans rallied Sunday behind an agenda based on unwavering opposition to the Obama administration and federal spending, laying the groundwork for gridlock until their 2012 goal: a new president and a "better Senate" that will get rid of the health care reform law.

Republicans said they were willing to work with President Barack Obama but also signaled it would be only on their terms. With control of the White House and the Senate, Democrats showed no sign they were conceding the final two years of Obama's term to Republican lawmakers who claimed the majority in the House of Representatives, with Republican John Boehner in line to replace Democrat Nancy Pelosi in the powerful speaker's position.
