NGwinnett.com invited candidates to complete a questionnaire outlining their goals and reasons for seeking office. The responses by participating candidates are presented unedited and in their entirety.
NGwinnett: What three issues do you believe are most important to the constituents in your district and why?
Hice: Obamacare is one of the most unconstitutional and economically detrimental programs to ever be passed by Congress. We must repeal and replace Obamacare with a patient-centered plan that is affordable and constitutional. With the national debt soaring, we cannot afford to have programs that will continue to lead us down this path of fiscal irresponsibility.
Government spending is out of control. Congressional leaders have shown that they have lost touch with Georgians and have no regard for the burden placed on the taxpayer when passing their legislation. It is time to return fiscal sanity to Washington D.C., which is why I favor passing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. We are going down a path that will leave an unrecognizable America for our children to inherit. Passing a Balanced Budget Amendment is a necessary step in reclaiming America.
Reestablishing a dominant global and local economy is vital to the continuation of American life as we know it. The best way to reinvigorate the economy is reestablishing a free-market environment in which the government is not breathing down the backs of business owners. A large step in doing this would be to repeal the 16th Amendment, abolish the IRS, and pass the FairTax. By returning to a free-market system as the Founding Fathers envisioned, we can begin growing small businesses and get the economy booming again.
NGwinnett: If elected, what do you hope to accomplish in the next term?
Hice: In my first term it is my goal to continue to build a unified front for the constitutional voices in Congress. Together we will reach a tipping point, which we can use to guide our nation back towards fiscal sanity and traditional American values. By standing firm on my strong constitutional, conservative values we will change the status quo in Washington.
NGwinnett: If you could only tell voters one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Hice: I’m a Christian, a Constitutionalist, and a Conservative.
