State of the Union is an Opportunity to Break Washington's Gridlock

2015/01/20

SALT LAKE CITY — Stephen Hawking has said that “intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Tuesday will be President Barack Obama’s seventh State of the Union speech to Congress, but it will be his first to a Congress controlled in both chambers by Republicans. What will he say? Savvy chief executives learn to adapt to changing circumstances and the ebb and flow of their own power. President Obama is undeniably in a weaker position than he was two months ago when Democrats still controlled the Senate.

The last few years have been a prime example of Washington Gridlock – which was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support. Read More

The last Congress was often viewed as a prime example of Washington gridlock — a time when partisan bickering replaced statesmanship. It was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support, but because they had originated in a House that was controlled by Republicans, these bills did not even merit a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
