WASHINGTON D.C. - Today, in a joint session of Congress, Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed the nation concerning the dangers of a nuclear Iran. Congressman Hice released the following statement in response to the address:
"I was honored to attend today's joint session of Congress, and I am saddened that many of my Democratic counterparts chose not to join us. The United States and Israel share an unbreakable bond and must stand united to defeat Islamic extremism and prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. I agree with the Prime Minister that the vaguely detailed deal the Administration is brokering with Iran, one of the world's largest financial backers of terrorism, is a bad one. For the safety of our country and the world, the fight to eliminate ISIS must go hand-in-hand with preventing a nuclear Iran.
I applaud diplomatic attempts at peace around the world. However, I have little faith in the Administration's ability to negotiate with Iran, when they chose to send James Taylor to sing "You've Got a Friend" to recently terrorized France. There are not enough folk singers in the world to sing away the potential catastrophic results of a nuclear armed Iran. "

Help with a Federal Agency
One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
