“Today is a day when Americans come together to celebrate our Republic. It is a time to look forward and work with one another to restore this nation to greatness. We can do that by promoting individual liberty and economic opportunity.
"While I did not support President Obama's re-election, I do respect the fact he has been chosen to lead us. Hopefully, he will use the opportunity he has been given to solve the most pressing issues that are facing our nation. A recent NBC News poll of Americans gave the President three areas of focus: job creation, fix the economy, and stop the wasteful spending. I can say, with confidence, Congressional Republicans are ready to work with President Obama to achieve success in these areas.”
