President Obama commended members of Congress for recent shows of bipartisanship and set out priorities for when they return to work in 2014.
In his weekly address, the president praised legislators for being “able to break the logjam a bit over the last few weeks.”

The largest indicator of progress for lawmakers was the bipartisan budget deal that passed through both chambers of Congress in the last two weeks. The measure sailed through the Senate on a 64-36 vote on Wednesday, after a speedy trip through the House the previous week.
“For the first time in years, both parties came together in the spirit of compromise to pass a budget – one that helps chart our economic course for the next two years,” Obama said.
