Republicans pledge bipartisan spirit in radio address

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Freshman Congresswoman Melissa Hart delivered the Republican Party's weekly radio address Saturday, emphasizing a pledge to work in a bipartisan fashion.

The Pennsylvania Republican said that despite the nation's prosperity, challenges remained that could be met by working together.

"As I campaigned over the last year and a half, there was one message I heard loud and clear from Republicans, Democrats and independents alike -- that the time has come to move away from partisan bickering and political gamesmanship," Hart said.

'We have had enough demagoguery'

"We have had enough demagoguery in the last few years, and the time has come for plain speaking and for action instead," Hart added.

The Congresswoman tried to calm public concern that the next Congress -- which is almost evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats -- will be stymied by gridlock.

"The American public has a right to expect their elected officials to work together to address the people's business," she said. "The next Congress, America's 107th, will have a unique opportunity to do this, making a fresh start with a new president in the White House," Hart said.

"I'm confident that I speak for all the members of the new Congress in pledging to put people ahead of politics," Hart said.
