Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) on Friday said the Democrats' "miserable failure" to create jobs is why Republicans won the House back in November.

"The Republican Party is here because of the miserable failure of the Democrat leadership in this House of Representatives and our president who has ruined millions of jobs in this country," Sessions said. "And that is why the Republican Party is here, to do something about that. Don't worry, we'll be adding millions of jobs."

Sessions on Friday was managing a House resolution requiring increased House scrutiny of regulations that hurt companies, and his comments were a response to Democratic complaints that the resolution would do nothing to create jobs.
