Divided US Congress Convenes
VOAVideo: Divided US Congress Convenes
The U.S. Congress convenes this week with scores of new members committed to repealing or halting most of President Barack Obama's initiatives. The new Congress features a Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a reduced Democratic majority in the Senate. Shepherding bills through a divided legislature will require compromise -- a rare commodity in Washington -- at a time of stark partisan and ideological divides.
