My days were filled with events from visiting senior centers, touring plants, spending time with constituents and holding town hall-style meetings across East Alabama.
One thing I love about having this time in East Alabama is that throughout the month, I got to directly hear what was on the minds of folks in the Third District. The issue I heard most about was concern over our national security and the continued executive overreach by the President.
As Congress now returns to Washington, the Iran deal takes center stage.
As you may know, since the beginning, I have been adamantly opposed to this deal with Iran and I heard the same opposition from many of you this last month. Iran has proven time and time again that they cannot be trusted and have done nothing but fund terror across the Middle East against those like our closest ally Israel.
This deal will simply reward their bad behavior. This deal is bad for our global security because it ends the embargo on Iran’s ballistic missile program and will impact U.S. and allied missile defense capabilities.
As Chairman of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces subcommittee, I am holding a hearing on these negative implications in addition to the impact to nonproliferation.
President Obama continues to roll out executive orders impacting our jobs and families. As Congress gets back to work, I will keep in mind the concerns I heard while back in East Alabama and will continue to fight for the folks across the Third District. Putting the brakes on this executive overreach is paramount.
On the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and 3rd anniversary of the Benghazi attacks, let’s also keep the families of those who lost loved ones on that tragic days in our prayers. May God bless America.
