State Of The Union Speech On Tap

John Boehner, Eric Cantor

On the day of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Va., left, with House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, talks with reporters after a GOP strategy session, Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, at Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. Eager not to be limited by the legislative gridlock that has plagued the divided Congress, Obama is expected to underscore a go-it-alone strategy where he could bypass lawmakers and use executive actions to achieve his policy proposals.
