minds, is also on hers. >> so it's very clear health care is the number one issue in this election, driven primarily around affordability and i think that we need to quickly show the american people that we're serious about fixing the health care system. didn't come to be a back bencher. i get two years to have an impact. >> the sheer number of new, young, mostly female lawmakers is injecting a new level of energy and intensity into washington. >> i am in a car on my way, rushing late to the capitol. we have to pick up our voting cards, our special member pins and get basically lined up so that we can be on the floor of the house for the new convening. >> when our new members take the oath, our congress will be refreshed and our democracy will be strengthened by their optimism, idealism and patriotism. >> but the hope and optimism of these new fresh men that usually
