"For too long, this administration has tried to tell the American people what is good for them and then blame somebody else for when their policies didn't work out," new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a victory speech yesterday.

"We are humbled by the responsibility the American people have placed with us," said House Speaker John Boehner. "It's time for the government to start getting results and implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country."
