U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth gave his farewell speech in the House, offering a frank assessment of what he will and will not miss as the Kentuckian approaches the end of a career that has included a stint as an influential committee chairman.

The Democrat, who has served as chairman of the House Budget Committee, thanked his family, staff and constituents.
