"We can rein in spending"

Reacting to Barack Obama's announcement of a two-year pay freeze for civilian federal employees, Richard Hanna said, in one of his first news releases as congressman-elect,

"Our financial woes won’t cease overnight, but we can rein in spending through a bipartisan effort. I am committed to fiscal accountability and restoring a balanced budget. As we work to restore our nation’s fiscal house, the president’s announcement is encouraging."
