FILE - In this Feb. 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, left, smile for photographers on Capitol Hill in Washington after the unveiling of a statue of Rosa Parks. Obama and congressional Democrats are relishing the party unity forged by the fall fiscal fights after some Democrats broke with the president this summer over Syria, government spying, and his leadership choice for the Federal Reserve. But their solidarity will face a tough test if Obama negotiates with Republicans on spending levels and entitlement cuts, areas where Democrats have long feared the president is willing to give away too much.
