Rep. Tom Cole, R-Moore, a member of the House Republican leadership team, said Republican lawmakers will present "a loyal but principled opposition.”

"You can usually count on Democrats to be Democrats and they usually overreach,” Cole said.

But, he said, "If they really govern from the center, I think we can find some common ground and move ahead.”

Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, said, "I think it’s important that we all come together to work on what’s best for our nation.”

She said she was ready to see bipartisan action on issues like energy independence, immigration reform and health care costs.

But, she said, she ran for Congress intending to keep taxes and spending low and the nation secure and wouldn’t compromise on those principles.
