WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement Wednesday after he was officially sworn into the United States Senate:
"I'm honored today to get the opportunity to serve Missourians, in fact, to be sworn in as Missouri's 45th United States Senator. I look forward to continuing to work for Missourians as I've had an opportunity to do in the past.
"The moment we face is a moment where people really want to know: Where are the private sector jobs? Why is the government spending so much money? And are we going to live in a country where the government is bigger than the people, or where the people are bigger than the government?
"I am going to do everything I can to ensure that we live in a country where the people are bigger than the government, and I will continue my conversation with Missourians to be sure that we continue to fight for jobs and commonsense solutions to the problems we face."
