We must govern differently. Not just differently than the Democrats, but differently from our previous majority as well. And job number one is to focus on more jobs for more Americans and to shift the economy from stall to forward. It's time to produce results. I also believe we need to change the culture of Washington. I believe that we must change the culture of spending that has prevailed for far too long.
I am humbled by the trust that my colleagues have placed in me and am eager to get to work and start delivering results. I especially want to thank the new freshman class, who have made us a Majority and who have come to Washington determined to rein in an out of control government, cut spending, and get people back to work.
