A Fresh Start for Washington

 
Click here or on the image above to watch me speak on the Senate floor about the new 114th Congress.
 
After a frustrating period of inaction and dysfunction in the Senate, under new leadership, we now have an opportunity to reverse course.

I am hopeful and optimistic that all of us – colleagues both new and old, Republican and Democrat – can work together to achieve serious results.

We must put behind us the days when Congress careened from one cliff to the next, governing from one crisis to another.

I am anxious to get to work on responsible legislative solutions to our nation’s biggest challenges. 

Today, our country faces threats from cyber attacks, inadequate border security and radical Islamist extremists like those responsible for the horrendous murders in Paris. 

Unfortunately, many of the administration’s responses to these challenges have fallen short of what is needed to successfully address numerous threats to our security: an unenforced red line with Syria, dubious negotiations with Iran and granting amnesty to those in the United States illegally.

Congress has an important role to play in addressing these issues and protecting our homeland.

On the domestic front, the 114th Congress must be about legislation that sets the conditions for economic growth.

Back home in Indiana, I consistently hear from Hoosiers who tell me that Washington needs to focus more on building an economic climate that encourages job creation and expands opportunity for workers.

The policies of the Obama Administration have fallen far short of what is needed. These concerns must be addressed in Congress, and there are several areas where Republicans can work with President Obama, if he is willing to work with us.

Specifically, together, I hope we can: 

• Construct the Keystone XL pipeline,
• Repeal the excise tax on medical devices,
• Reform federal regulations that prevent businesses from growing and hiring,
• Open more markets to American-made products and
• Reform our broken tax code.
 
I look forward to what 2015 and the 114th Congress have in store. I want Hoosiers to know that I will continue to fully engage in representing them in our nation's capital.

Coats with Hoosier Republican U.S. Representatives

I had the privilege of presiding over a ceremonious swearing in event for the GOP members of Indiana's congressional delegation this week. I truly believe our state has a strong, cohesive bond of lawmakers who are trying represent the best interests of Hoosiers in Washington.
