WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s proposed budget for FY’17:

“Today marks the last time that President Obama will submit his budget to Congress, and frankly, it contains the same irresponsible elements that we’ve seen before. None of the President’s previously proposed budgets have balanced, and while doubling down on the same failed policies of the past, neither does this one. Over the next ten years President Obama’s budget would increase federal spending by $2.5 trillion and increase taxes by $3.4 trillion. In order to restore fiscal order, we cannot adhere to the President’s plan of growing government and simply throwing more money at our problems.

Offering a budget that includes an oil tax that would increase the cost of gas by 24 cents per gallon is clearly not a budget that I can take seriously.  The American people deserve a realistic budget from the President, not a partisan wish list that adds to the burdens of hardworking taxpayers.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
