WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he’ll veto any attempts by Congress to roll back progress that’s been made on his key priorities.

Obama says in his State of the Union address that his policies to help the middle class and expand opportunity are working. He says they’ll keep working as long as politics don’t interfere.

Republicans are hoping to use their newfound control of both chambers of Congress to nullify Obama’s executive actions on immigration, and make major changes to Obama’s health care law and to the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial overhaul.

But Obama says the U.S. can’t put businesses or the economy at risk through government shutdowns. He says the U.S. must not take away Americans’ health insurance, refight previous immigration battles or unravel new rules governing Wall Street.
