Obama Embraces Fight With Congress

President Barack Obama is eager to challenge Congress by using his executive authority on issues ranging from the environment to the minimum wage.

And in turn, that is exactly House Speaker John Boehner's plan, but the House Speaker's proposal has only strengthened the president's plans. The main goal of Obama's executive orders and actions is to enact at least small parts of his major initiatives, like immigration reform, even if he can’t get support from Republicans in Congress on broader bills.
