Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) made the following statement Wednesday following his innauguration into the 112th House of Representatives of the United States of America:
"I pledge to remain accessible, accountable, and absolutely focused on the values that brought me here. I am eager to begin restoring our economic future, creating an open and transparent Congress, and reforming a health care system that puts the patient first.
"We have watched long enough as Washington politicians have traded away our fiscal sovereignty and the very freedoms of future generations of Americans. It is our moral obligation to tackle our debt and deficit and begin to bring fiscal responsibility to our federal budget by controlling the size and cost of government.
"Today, as we start with a new Majority, I look forward to working hard to make a positive impact for the people of the Fifth Congressional District of Arizona and their future.”
