Obama's points of contention will include job creation and a push for the ambitious progressive plans he outlined in his second inaugural address three weeks ago.

The president hopes he can encourage lawmakers to join him in reforming laws on gun ownership and immigration and boosting taxes to raise government spending power. The president's priorities also include easing back on spending cuts and addressing climate change.
