Congressman Steve King released the following statement today to recognize President Barack Obama's second inauguration:
"I congratulate President Obama for taking his second oath of office for the Presidency of the United States," said King. "To 'preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States' is a promise not to be taken lightly, and one that may require refreshing.
In Iowa we understand that each new harvest season brings new crops, and as the Bible teaches, to everything there is a season. With the Presidential campaign behind us, a new season begins today. I encourage President Obama to look at this second term for new opportunities to uphold the rights enshrined in the Constitution, and to commit to representing the desires and dreams of the American people."
