(CNN) - While new House Speaker John Boehner received the gavel from the new House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Wednesday, President Obama shot back at the Republican agenda saying:
"It's up to you to show that you care too much about this country to let it fall backward."
Via his political "BarackObama" Twitter account, which originates from the Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America, the president linked to a statement on the OFA website that said Democrats must fight back against the GOP who are determined to roll back the progress of the past two years.
"They're starting with health care reform," Obama wrote. "It's up to us to fight back. We're forming a campaign to protect our progress, showing just how our achievements are already improving lives across the country-and taking on the Republicans who are pushing for repeal."
The website that Obama linked to through his Twitter account asks viewers to sign up to support the Democratic cause and make a donation.
House Republicans have already voiced intentions to vote to repeal health care reform passed by the Obama administration in the opening days of the new Congress.
