Americans earlier this month chose a "new direction for our nation," and it's up to lawmakers to help deliver the change sought in the election, Senator-elect Todd Young said in Saturday's weekly Republican address.

"Our nation must come together as only Americans can," said Young, R-Indiana, who is heading to Washington after defeating Democratic challenger Evan Bayh, a former senator and two-term governor. "Our principled disagreements must not obscure our shared principles — our belief that every American is an asset to be realized, not a liability to be written off."

After most elections, he continued, about half of Americans are thrilled while the other half are "profoundly disappointed," he continued, and Americans live in a "representative democracy, characterized by free and fair elections and peaceful transfers of power."

Young noted that in his experience, all Americans, no matter which party, want the same thing — "an assurance that if they work hard they can create a better life for themselves and their families. They want to feel safe in their communities and secure in their future."

However, change came because of the feeling that Washington was making the American dream too difficult to achieve, said Young, and Congress will tackle the challenges head-on, including restoring legislative responsibility and replacing Obamacare.

“Elections should highlight principled disagreements, but they must not obscure our capacity to cooperate for the common good," concluded Young. "Through a respectful exchange of ideas, and emphasis on shared goals, I am confident we can put many of our disagreements behind us to ensure a better future for all Americans."
