Braley Discusses Efforts to Stop Post Office Closures

In Brandon, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) met with local residents and officials about the impact of the US Postal Service’s planned closures of hundreds of small town post offices across Iowa, including the post office in Brandon. Last week, a US House committee – the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform – endorsed a controversial bill that, in part, allows the Postal Service to move forward with its plans to close thousands of post offices across the country, including 178 post offices in Iowa. Braley is a member of the panel, and opposed the bill. The bill, known as ...

Rep. Bruce Braley: Time to End the War

Anniversary of the September 11th attacks offered all Americans an opportunity to reflect on the losses of that day and the changes our country has undergone in the past decade. September 18, 2011, gives us an opportunity to reflect on another somber anniversary -- ten years ago George W. Bush signed the authorization to send military forces to Afghanistan. Our nation's longest war began with a clear goal of disposing of Osama Bin Laden, those responsible for the 9/11 attacks, and anyone who harbored them. Ten years on, we've accomplished our mission. It's time to end our involvement in ...

Braley Calls For Immediate Withdrawal In Afghanistan

A recent trip to Afghanistan, the death of Osama bin Laden and the toll on U.S. soldiers has convinced Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) that the United States should withdraw all combat troops out of Afghanistan by the end of the year. "This isn't a decision I came to lightly, but one that I have struggled with for some time," Braley said in a statement Thursday afternoon. "Our justifications for going into Afghanistan are no longer valid, and meanwhile, the costs -- both human and financial -- of continuing this war are just too high." His campaign also sent an email out to supporters Thursday ...

Braley: ‘I’m Greatly Concerned the Administration Did Not Act Fast Enough’
At hearing on Ebola virus, Congressman stresses need to accelerate vaccine testing, available from Ames, Iowa company Washington, D.C. – After a second American healthcare worker contracted the Ebola virus, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today at a Congressional hearing sharply questioned the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the failed protocol that led to the new infections and about what can be done to ensure the safety of all Americans moving forward. “I’m greatly concerned that the Administration did not act fast enough. The Administration needs to be looking at all options available to keep our families safe, and they need to move as quickly and responsibly as possible to make any necessary changes at our airports and hospitals that would prevent this disease from spreading further,” Braley said. “Our number one priority in combating this disease must be the protection of Americans.”    Panelists at today’s hearing of the Subcommitt
Braley Introduces Final Piece of His College Affordability Plan
Congressman’s proposal provides small grants to current students at risk of dropping out of college due to financial need Washington, D.C. – Rep.  Bruce Braley (IA-01) today continued to roll out his College Affordability Plan by introducing legislation to provide current college students at risk of dropping out with a small amount of short-term aid to help them finish their education.   “We have too many students with only a year or two of college remaining that drop out due to short-term financial struggles and wind up with no diploma but significant debt,” Braley said. “My hope is that this grant program can help bridge that short-term gap and help preserve the educational goals of current students.” Many students begin their college career on sound financial footing but are then unable to finish their degree because of worsening or unexpected financial problems. Many of these students drop out—even in their final year of school—leaving them with high debt and no
Braley Continues College Affordability Plan Push, Introduces Bill Strengthening Education Tax Incentives
Congressman’s proposal helps current students with tuition costs, while providing relief with high levels of student loan debt interest Washington, D.C. – Rep.  Bruce Braley (IA-01) today continued to roll out his College Affordability Plan by introducing legislation designed to help students and parents manage rising tuition costs, as well as provide relief to those facing significant student loan interest payments.   “The value of the American Opportunity Tax Credit and student loan interest deduction have declined significantly—while at the same time tuition and student debt levels are higher than ever—that’s not right,” Braley said. “These incentives need to have their value restored and indexed to inflation so that we’re not facing the same situation in another five or ten years.” Braley is introducing the College Tuition and Debt Relief Act of 2014 today, which is designed to renew and extend tax incentives that help current and future college students affo
Braley Welcomes Waterloo Honor Flight Veterans to Washington
Congressman: ‘I’m eternally grateful for their service’ Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) welcomed nearly 100 Iowa veterans participating in today’s Waterloo Honor Flight as they arrived at the National World War II Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC. “It was an honor to get to meet with the Waterloo veterans who traveled to D.C. today to see their memorial,” Braley said. “Meeting with Honor Flight veterans is one of the greatest privileges of my job—I can’t help but think of my dad as I listen to the stories and sacrifices of the veterans of the Greatest Generation, and I’m eternally grateful for their service.” Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices by taking World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington, DC to view their memorials in-person, and at no cost. More on today’s Honor Flight veterans can be found in the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. Last year, Brale
