The bottom line is that while Governor Reynolds, Speaker Grassley and Majority Leader Whitver are pointing fingers and playing the blame game, President Biden, Rep. Axne and other Democratic Leaders are actually getting things done for working Iowans.
Thanks to President Biden and Congresswoman Cindy Axne, at least $5 billion will arrive in Iowa over the next five years to help rebuild crumbling infrastructure. Iowa will get even more help in areas where we need it most, specifically with bridges, rural broadband and water treatment systems.
The commitment of Iowans to serve our country has been strong since the Civil War. That’s why the Legislature has worked to make Iowa a great place for veterans and their families, encourage returning service members to make Iowa their home, and ensure they receive the education, job opportunities and quality of life they deserve.
We need an economy that works for hard-working Iowans, not the top 1%. Democrats will continue to fight and show up for workers and retirees who have earned a bigger paycheck and secure retirement. Republicans haven’t shown up to support striking workers for one simple reason: they don’t support them.
