2013 was a guest -- rough year for washington, but i guess it is kind of like that every year.

The nsa spying scandal, the government shutdown.

Might even be a year that both parties want to forget.

Even president obama is moving forward.

President 13 -- 2013 could the break year through for america.

We all know there is a lot more we will have to do to restore opportunity and brought base growth for every american.
