GOP Senators Outline Areas Ripe for Bipartisanship Ahead of SOTU

Senate Republicans pushed back on an Obama administration tax proposal while outlining areas ripe for bipartisanship at their weekly news conference Tuesday and ahead of President Barack Obama’s sixth State of the Union address.

“It’s important to remember, it’s not unusual to have divided government. We’ve had it a lot,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “What I hope to hear from the president tonight is an emphasis on things that we can agree on, things that give us a chance to actually advance the agenda of the American people.”
