“We’ve got a lot to do in 2014,” President Obama said on Tuesday as he prepared to convene his first Cabinet meeting of the year. And he said he plans to get things done, with or without Congress:
“But one of the things that I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.”
Obama has declared 2014 a “year of action.” He said he’s “very pleased” that the House and Senate have agreed to a $1.1 trillion spending bill for fiscal 2014: He said the funding level “will allow us to take some important steps to provide the services and help that Americans need…to get ahead in this economy.”
