 After a year of unprecedented partisan gridlock in Washington, 2014 presents itself as a year of opportunity for President Obama and Congress. One thing is certain: from the continued roll-out of the Affordable Care Act to the challenge of ever-rising income inequality, there is no shortage of work to be done in the Capital.
