According to some early reports, President Obama may decide to exercise his executive authority and go it alone on issues where he cannot rally support in Congress. One such issue reportedly under consideration is an increase in minimum wage for government contractors. Another issue the President is expected to address in his State of the Union, and one markets will be watching closely, is income inequality. Investors will be interested in what form that plan may take, such as whether the plan will include new taxes.
