FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2014 file photo, President Barack Obama meets with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., left, and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. The new Congress convenes Tuesday with Republicans in control of the House and the Senate as a formidable counterpoint to President Barack Obama in his final two years in office. Obama has the power to veto legislation, an action he’s only taken twice in six years. Expect plenty more in the next 24 months in showdowns between the Democratic president and the GOP-led Congress.
