After enduring what seemed to be a never-ending election season, I am hopeful for what is in store for America as President-elect Donald Trump gets ready to take office and Republicans will be in the majority in both chambers of Congress for next year.
We can also rest assured that a conservative voice will soon be appointed to the Supreme Court to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
The people of East Alabama and across the United States made sure their message be heard loud and clear on the direction they want our country to be headed.
As the current Congress comes to a close and we get ready to start the 115th Congress in January, much work will need to be done. Now it is up to Congress to get busy.
I believe repealing and replacing Obamacare will be one of the first items on the agenda as Congress works to find quality and affordable healthcare options that will help hardworking families instead of hurting them.
Strengthening our national defense and making sure our country remains a superpower will also be on the table. On the homeland security front, securing our border will remain at the forefront of our priorities as we deal with our illegal immigration situation.
During this Thanksgiving season, I hope all of us across East Alabama will take time out of our busy lives to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in the United States and pray for the future of our great country and our new leaders as we move forward.
