Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), released the following statement on President Barack Obama's Second Inauguration.
"On this inauguration day it's important to congratulate America on yet another peaceful transition that concludes a hard-fought presidential election.
"I did not hear the President commit to working with Republicans to solve America's most pressing challenges: the urgent deficit crisis and the need to move quickly to save Social Security and Medicare.
"I heard more of the same rhetoric dividing Americans based on their success and pursuing an extreme agenda of global warming, gun control and more spending that's not paid for.
"For those of us who predict another downgrade of America's credit rating because the President refuses to help get the country's financial house in order, it was disappointing."
