That same week, I was reminded of how fortunate we are in Oklahoma to have statesmen like Tom Cole, who spoke out on the need for compromise to our fiscal crisis. In times like these, our leaders must work together to find real solutions to our nation's problems — not just be another politician taking policy positions based on partisan rhetoric.
I will be forever indebted to the people of my district and the great state of Oklahoma for allowing me to serve. Thank you for giving Andrea, Janna, Hunter and me this wonderful opportunity.
