Slew of challenges for Republican-led US Congress in 2015

Mitch McConnell, now the Senate Majority leader, speaks to media on December 16, 2014 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DCThe 113th Congress, which wrapped up December 16, was one of the least productive in modern history. Republican leaders will have plenty on their plate in the first quarter, as the party seeks to roll back President Barack Obama’s legislative gains and press its own agenda ahead of the 2016 presidential race. Conservatives are furious at Obama’s recent use of executive orders, notably to halt deportations of undocumented immigrants and to begin normalizing US-Cuba relations. Republican legislation, including several pro-jobs bills, should pass relatively easily through the House of Representatives, where Republicans expanded their majority to 247 of 435 seats.
