New Leader pledges reduced spending, “restored openness” and “honest debate” in “the People’s House.”

From Playbook:

“The American people have humbled us. They have refreshed our memories as to just how temporary the privilege to serve is. They have reminded us that everything here is on loan from them. That includes this gavel, which I accept cheerfully and gratefully, knowing I am but its caretaker. After all, this is the people’s House. This is their Congress. It’s about them, not us. What they want is a government that is honest, accountable and responsive to their needs – a government that respects individual liberty, honors our heritage, and bows before the public it serves.”
