ACTING ALONE: The White House is picking up the pace on executive actions and blaming Congress for its unwillingness to work with the administration. “In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, [senior Obama adviser Dan] Pfeiffer argued that congressional Republicans are not interested in engaging on the economy, instead spending time ‘obsessively trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act' and ‘ginning up politically motivated investigations,'” writes Justin Sink. Pfeiffer went on to say the president's only option is to use his authority to unilaterally improve economic security.

BIPARTISAN EFFORT: Three Problem Solvers — Rep. Peter Welch, Rep. Mick Mulvaney and Rep. Rick Nolan — are part of a bipartisan coalition working to stop the United States from sending shoulder-fired missiles to the Syrian Opposition. “Lawmakers are hoping to gain some clarity from Obama on the topic, but they will also try and take legislative action. The House is set to debate and pass the National Defense Authorization Act this week, and several members want to try and attach an amendment to explicitly prevent the United States from sending any MANPADS to ‘any state or non-state actor in Syria,'” writes Kate Nocera: Kate Nocera for BuzzFeed: Bipartisan Group Urges Obama To Not Arm Syrian Rebels With Anti-Aircraft Missiles
