State of the Union: During his 6th State of the Union address, President Obama laid out an agenda built more on small steps than sweeping change, but promised a proactive White House in 2014.
Agenda: In reaction to the address, political analysts believe the president did very little to improve future prospects for his legislative agenda. Rather, it seems President Obama further ruptured his relationship with House Republicans.
Obamacare: Although President Obama called on Republicans to stop trying to repeal Obamacare, three GOP senators weren’t listening. Instead, this week, Republican Senators Tom Coburn, Orrin Hatch and Richard Burr rolled out a GOP alternative to Obamacare.
