Attorney to challenge Loebsack in new 2nd District


A Quad-Cities attorney and school board member has announced plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack in Iowa’s new 2nd District. John Archer, 39, senior legal counsel for John Deere and a member of the Pleasant Valley School Board, said Wednesday he has filed formed a campaign committee in the new 24-county district that includes Johnson County. More information can be found at www.ArcherforCongress.com. “It’s time for the United States to get serious about winning the future, and I’m ready to lead,” Archer said in his announcement. “We can no longer ...


Loebsack abandons Iowa farmers


John Archer called out Congressman Dave Loebsack for abandoning Iowa farmers in opposing the most recent free trade agreements with Columbia, Panama and South Korea. “Congressman Loebsack’s ‘no vote’ underscores his inability to understand how government can actually help our economy recover. America is first-rate at producing food and goods, but we need additional markets to enhance the opportunities to sell our goods, which will ultimately lead to job creation. Loebsack’s ‘no vote’ was a thumb in the eye to Iowa’s family farmer, and our ...


Loebsack sees long-term benefit of national flood center


Despite concerns about the federal budget, Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack said Monday in Iowa City he thinks federal funding for a proposed national flood center is important and could provide savings in the long term. The research of flood preparation and mitigation that would happen at a national flood center could lead to some prevention of flood damage to property and eventual savings by lessening the federal money needed to help people after flood disasters, and by creating efficiencies in government agency cooperation, Loebsack said. Climate change, increased development and changing ...

Loebsack Introduces Legislation to Modernize Nation’s Schools
Congressman Dave Loebsack today introduced legislation that would provide funding to update and modernize our schools. The Renew America’s Schools Act would provide $100 million dollars per year for five years to create a competitive federal grant program through the Department of Energy for schools to modernize and make energy-efficient upgrades to their facilities. Loebsack’s Renew America’s Schools Act was also included as part of a comprehensive infrastructure package that was introduced by Loebsack and his colleagues on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. That package includes a $40 billion investment for broadband deployment across the country, including rural communities. “The environment in which our students learn and educators teach can have an immense impact on the quality of education our children receive. Unfortunately, many of our nation's schools are in a state of disrepair,” said Loebsack. “The Renew America’s Schools Act is a win for workers, s
Loebsack Announces Winner of 2017 Congressional Art Contest People’s Choice Award
Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that a black and white photograph, entitled “Duck Creek,” by Davenport West High School sophomore Andre Garcia, was selected to represent Iowa’s Second Congressional District in the 2017 Congressional Art Contest. The People’s Choice Award winner was selected in an online competition in which more than 1400 votes were cast. “Duck Creek” will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year and Garcia will receive a free trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the unveiling and a reception to honor all of this year’s winners.    “Each year I am more and more impressed by the creativity, ingenuity, and talent of our local high school students. I send my congratulations to all of the young artists whose wonderful submissions made it a very close contest this year. I especially want to congratulate Andre and look forward to welcoming him and his family to Washington and seeing his artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol,” said
Loebsack Introduces Legislation to Protect Iowans’ Access to Healthcare Coverage
Amid reports that Iowans who rely on healthcare insurance purchased through a state's exchange could be left without any options for coverage, Congressman Dave Loebsack today introduced legislation to protect Iowans where no coverage options may be available. “Folks in Congress need to understand that these are real people and real lives we are talking about. My legislation is not meant to be a permanent fix, but we need to give the folks in Iowa who could lose their insurance an option aside from entering into the state’s high-risk pool, which is often expensive and provides poor coverage,” said Loebsack. “Both Washington and Des Moines need to come together and provide a way forward that will ensure stability for Iowans who rely on the exchange to provide their healthcare coverage.” The Healthcare Options for All Act would provide any Iowan living in a county with no access to a qualified health plan offered through a state’s Exchange access to health insurance cov
Loebsack: New CBO Score Reaffirms Republicans’ Healthcare Repeal Plan Will Rip Coverage from Millions of Americans
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its newest analysis of the plan Republicans passed through the House to repeal healthcare coverage. The report concluded that over ten years, approximately 23 million fewer people would have their healthcare coverage than under the current legislation. “Today’s new CBO report reaffirms what many have feared – that even with the tweaks made by Republicans, this plan rips healthcare coverage from millions of Americans. It does this while giving the top 400 highest income families an annual $7 million tax break. The bill continues to put Iowa’s and America’s most vulnerable, including seniors, children, people with disabilities and the working poor, at greater risk by cutting nearly a trillion dollars from Medicaid. There is no doubt that we must continue to improve the ACA, but cutting millions of Americans from having coverage is not a way to d
