Alexander: New Senate Majority “Determined to Fix Our Broken System”

Knoxville, Tenn., Nov. 5 —U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) today released the following statement on the results of yesterday’s midterm elections:

“Yesterday Americans elected a new Senate majority determined to fix our broken system and move our country in a new direction. I intend to help do this in a way Tennesseans know well—to work with others to get results. Americans want senators who know how to do more than make a speech; they want results. Republicans in the Senate are ready to hit the ground running with proposals to grow jobs, turn our health care system in the direction of more choices and lower costs, return control over our public schools to communities and classroom teachers, and put an end to the Obama administration’s unconstitutional overreach into so many areas of Americans’ lives.”
