Boehner: We must listen to the people

WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. John Boehner says the GOP takeover of the House brings "a new majority" to Congress with a mandate to listen to the people.

Appearing with fellow Republicans at a Capitol news conference, Boehner said it's "time for us to roll up our sleeves and get to work." He said the agenda the Republicans will push includes efforts to cut government spending and create jobs. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he feels the Obama administration for two years had been "ignoring the voters and their wishes." The Kentucky Republican said that produced "predictable results" at the polls Tuesday.

Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said the GOP was "humbled by the trust the American people have placed on us."
