Congressional leaders from both parties will meet with President Barack Obama next Tuesday.
The meeting, the first since Republicans officially took control of the Senate, will include the Senate and House leadership teams and will give lawmakers a chance to discuss the agenda for the 114th Congress.
Obama will be forced during the last two years of his presidency to work with Republicans in Congress if he has any hope of crafting legislation that will help cement his legacy. But the relationship is deeply strained. Already the House and Senate have plans to vote on changes to Obamacare - the president’s signature legislation - that Democrats argue would weaken the intent of the health care bill.
House Republicans are also suing Obama for his executive actions on Obamacare.
