(WASHINGTON) – A new Republican face took the podium Thursday to introduce a new class of Republican representation in Washington.
U.S. Congressman-Elect, Austin Scott (R-GA), hailed a ‘new breed of leaders for a new majority and a new Congress’ in the weekly GOP address.
“The American people have sent 85 new Republicans to Washington with a clear message: listen up, stop the job-killing policies, stop the runaway spending, and focus on getting our country back on track,” Scott said.
Although Scott gave thanks during the Thanksgiving-day address, he said Washington must turn its attention to those Americans who are struggling.
“As much as we have to be thankful for, too many Georgians and too many Americans have been out of work for far too long. Our new Republican majority is ready to focus on creating jobs and putting a stop to the runaway spending in Washington, DC.”
