    HAHN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. HAHN. Mr. Speaker, it's a new year, it's a new beginning, it's a new Congress.

    This 113th Congress will let us seize the opportunity to start with a clean slate. We must put aside partisan politics and labels to come together for the good of the American people.

    Our seniors, our children, our families are looking toward Congress to take meaningful action on critical issues that were left unresolved in 2012, such as the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. Our Nation is looking for a path forward.

    I didn't come to Congress to simply talk the talk. I came here to walk the walk for my constituents, for California, and for this great Nation. Today is a new day that calls for new ideas, collaboration, and real solutions for the American people.

    Yesterday, I also had the pleasure of joining nine of my congressional colleagues across the aisle at a bipartisan No Labels ``Meeting to Make America Work.'' We addressed the partisan gridlock in Congress that has slowed progress for the American people. It's high time we find compromises that will lead to real solutions to the real problems facing our Nation.

    Today I call on all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to join in this effort. Let's make America work.
