While today marks the successful conclusion of the "100 Hours Agenda" in the People's House, it also marks the beginning of a new chapter in American governance - an era of cooperation and accountability that we hope will fundamentally change the way business is done in Washington.

I am proud of what we've accomplished over these last two weeks - from sweeping ethics reform, to restoring fiscal responsibility, to strengthening our national security, to giving more families a realistic shot at the American dream. And I'm optimistic about what we'll achieve, together, over the next two years.

But what I'm most proud of today is the way that the House came together, elevated progress above partisanship, and united to discover not the Democratic or Republican solutions, but the right solutions.
