• On federal spending, they’ve proposed a federal pay freeze as a first step toward fiscal sanity.
• On immigration, they’ve abandoned their pursuit of comprehensive immigration reform.
• On economic recovery, they’ve admitted that the Obama tax hikes are wrong for America.
Much, however, remains to be done.
My hope is that the new Congress will follow through on this momentum and fulfill the conservative mandate delivered in November. Standing firmly on principles, conservatives can push to repeal Obamacare, rein in government spending and regulations, and stop all tax hikes.
They can, in short, listen to the wisdom of the people.
