Big Things Obama Did In 2014 Despite Republican Stonewalling

ObamaPresidentialSealThe 2014 elections were about as brutal for Democrats as they could have imagined. But it wasn’t such a bad year for the party otherwise. President Barack Obama gave up on working with Republicans on big issues, and instead relied on his executive authority to implement a slew of important reforms.

Here are five big things he did this year without the help of Republicans.

  1. Sweeping changes to immigration enforcement
  2. Actual progress on climate change
  3. Remaking the federal courts for a generation
  4. Beginning to transform U.S. relationships with Iran and Cuba
  5. Greater protections for federal contractors
