Congratulations to Justice Neil Gorsuch on his confirmation to the Supreme Court. As a distinguished jurist and committed defender of the Constitution, Justice Gorsuch will be an excellent addition to high court.
Tonight, as President Obama gives his farewell speech, two-thirds of the country believe we are headed in the wrong direction. Under his disappointing presidency, the national debt exploded, wages remained stagnant, health care costs skyrocketed, and too many hardworking families were left behind. After repeated foreign policy missteps, the world also became a far more dangerous place. Thankfully, the American people rejected the status quo and chose a new direction in the past election. In ten days, President-elect Trump will be sworn into office, and we will have an exciting opportunity to get America back on track and create a safer and more prosperous future for the next generation.
