TOPEKA (KSNT) – Pat Roberts survived the toughest challenge of his political career last night, but now he’s shifting gears proving republicans cans show Americans congress can accomplish something.
“The bills that we will be considering are the ones that are in the best interest of our Kansan’s up and down Main Street in agriculture, health care, education and the lending business,” Republican Sen. Pat Roberts said.
For the first time in six years, Roberts’s heads back to a senate in which his party is the majority.
“We have the spotlight now, it was very difficult for us during the gridlock days of Reid and Obama to even talk about any solutions that we had,” Roberts said.
Roberts even admitted that if he could work with the President he would.
“I think there is a good opportunity to work with the President with regards to new trade pacts. He can send them up now that Harry Reid is no longer there,” Roberts said.
With no distractions in his way, Roberts hopes bills that truly need addressed will take priority.
“There’s just a whole series of things that we need to address and I think we can try to work with the President and when it doesn’t work that way we will do it by some other means.”
Roberts also mentioned he will go out of his way to make sure the farm bill is working correctly, and that includes getting food stamps out of the bill.
