New Congress readies for fight with Obama

The 112th Congress is set to take over on Wednesday and there are already plans to schedule a vote to repeal the health-care overhaul and hold hearings on Medicare fraud and waste – what else can we expect? Contention and a reading of the Constitution. Some of the issues in the cross hairs include new limits on greenhouse gas emissions and government spending. It has been 16 years since a Democratic President has faced a Republican controlled Congress – which resulted in the 1995 government shutdown. Will this be déjà vu all over again?
