Hello, I'm Congressman James Lankford from the great state of Oklahoma. Tomorrow, President Obama will be sworn in for a second term. Though we disagree on many areas of policy, I join my fellow Americans in pledging to pray for the President, his family and our nation in the days ahead.
During the last four years, our nation has faced difficult economic times. Millions of Americans are still out of work and the cost of groceries, gas and healthcare continues to rise. In the long history of our nation, we have never increased spending and federal debt faster than we have in this period.
In the book of Proverbs it says a wise man leaves an inheritance for his children's children; unfortunately Washington is consuming our children's inheritance.
