U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) spoke on the Senate floor today about his decision to step down from the Senate Republican leadership in January. Alexander said, "Stepping down will liberate me to work for results on the issues I care the most about," Alexander said. "That means stopping runaway regulations and spending. But it also means setting priorities -- confronting the timidity that allows runaway health care spending to squeeze out research, scholarships, highways and other government functions that make it easier and cheaper to create jobs. I want to do more to make the Senate a more effective institution so that it can deal better with serious issues."
