REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – America’s commander-in-chief says he will use his executive power to make things happen in 2014, if congress stands in his way.

The White House says President Obama met with senators from the Democratic Party on Wednesday to talk about proposals to raise minimum wage, to improve America’s education system, to create more jobs, and to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

The White House stresses that President Obama wants to work with lawmakers to make progress, but will not hesitate to act on his own to get things done.

In the past, President Obama has used his executive power to allow more than 1.7 million undocumented students to legally stay and work in America.

    Humans are basically ignorant, inattentive, and have short attention spans which is why Obama’s con worked so well. They paid no attention to anything Obama is saying and doing to the country and to the citizen. So ! my question is , how’s that hope and change for you ? Obama has transform America to lawlessness and soon to be communist or third world country.

      @Delia … What have you been smoking? Do you even know what branch of government the Office of the President belong to? If you do, then you should know only Congress can make Law. The President has the power to and can make appointments when Congress is in cession. Any executive order the President enacts can be changed by Congress. Were you this upset when the previous President got us in a War of choice (Iraq)? How did that war work out? Not everything that our President has done is bad and not everything he’s done is good. You need to stop drinking that Fox News hater ade and do your own research.
