What Will 2023 Hold for Capitol Hill? Previewing the Year in Politics

Summary from the AllSides News Team

After the polarizing elections, major Supreme Court rulings, and social justice movements of the past few years, 2023 is shaping up to be another busy year in U.S. politics.

Stories to Watch: Republicans will take control of the House of Representatives this week, and are expected to launch a litany of probes into the Biden family, the country's COVID-19 response, and other hot-button issues. The Justice Department will decide whether to charge former President Donald Trump for his role in the 2021 U.S. Capitol riot. President Joe Biden will decide whether to run again in 2024, as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and other potential challengers emerge. Consumers will hope for record-breaking inflation to slow down. And the Supreme Court will hear several more important cases, including on affirmative action, the ongoing immigration crisis at the southern border, and Biden's student loan forgiveness plan.

How the Media Covered It: Sources across the spectrum previewed the year in politics and the politicians who are expected to have a key role. Left- and center-rated sources tended to focus more on what will happen to Trump than right-rated sources did.
