Obama's remarks Wednesday to reporters at the White House cap a frenzied and surprisingly productive lame duck session on Capitol Hill.

After Republicans posted big Election Day victories in November, the Democratic-led Congress ended with a flurry of activity. Lawmakers passed a giant tax compromise and ended the military's ban on openly gay service. They ratified a nuclear arms treaty with Russia and approved billions of dollars in aid to survivors of the 2001 terrorist attacks.
