Did you watch the State of the Union address last night? Neither did I but I saw bits and pieces of it and I heard several summaries of it.
So the president is planning to finish his term by 'going it alone'. He's planning to implement several initiatives without Congressional approval.
On one hand this is good given Congress's intent to obstruct and destruct. On the other hand I'm concerned that a president has the power to do this. Oh, wait! Isn't that exactly what George Bush did for 8 years? Why, yes. I believe it is.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Right?
