Keeping a job in Washington, DC isn’t easy, even if you’re the Secretary of Defense. Chuck Hagel announced Monday that he’s stepping down.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger, a Republican, is happy with move. Kinzinger says ISIS remains an existential threat to U.S. security, and the country needs a more robust and determined approach to drive the terrorist forces from their strongholds.

Republicans who take control of the Senate next month have also been extremely critical of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.

Hagel will stay on until his replacement is in place.
