Now is not the time for radical royal decrees and a more massive federal government. If the President had announced tonight that he is now going to start working WITH Congress for the good of the American people, by changing course and helping create full-time, non-government jobs, better wages, along with lower healthcare, energy and education costs, and work to get government out of people’s private lives for a change, that would have been a speech I would still be applauding.

Speaker Boehner: Sen. Ernst’s life is a quintessential ‘only-in-America’ story. She built a campaign by listening to the people of Iowa and focusing on their priorities, especially jobs and our still-struggling economy. She knows that our federal government is too big, our spending is too high, and our tax code is broken.
