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 Statement on Mass Shooting in Orlando
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement in response to the mass shooting that occurred in Orlando early Sunday morning. “The sights and sounds that have come out of Orlando over the past day in the aftermath of the terrorist attack at Pulse nightclub have been heart wrenching. My heart aches for the families and loved ones of those who were injured or have died as a result of this senseless attack. “To the members of the LGBT community, please know that I stand with the rest of our nation in supporting you. For this terrorist to seek out and attack innocent people because of who they love, especially in the middle of LGBT Pride month, is unconscionable. We cannot allow hatred and fear to divide us. We must come together to support all Americans who make our nation as strong as it is. I want to encourage all those who are able to help to seek ways in their own neighborhoods to help, by giving blood or donating their time. “I also want to commend the a
Loebsack: VA Response Surrounding Veteran’s Suicide is Lacking; Leads Fight for More Action to Protect Veterans
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement after receiving a response to his questions from Judith Johnson-Mekota, the Director of Iowa City VA Health Care System (ICVAHCS). On July 12th, Loebsack wrote to Director Johnson-Mekota seeking answers in regards to the circumstances surrounding the suicide of Sgt. Brandon Ketchum on July 8th, a day after he reportedly sought care at the ICVAHCS. In light of this tragedy, Loebsack is drafting legislation to ensure all veterans who seek treatment receive the care they need and deserve. “The VA’s response to my questions is lacking, to say the least. I understand and respect the need for privacy and a full and thorough investigation of the events leading up to Sgt. Ketchum taking his own life, but this response fails to address the greater issue of what needs to be done to ensure this never happens again. The VA must ensure any veteran who seeks treatment gets the care they need and deserve,” said Loebsack. Loebsack
Obama Signs Loebsack’s ‘Rural Health Care Connectivity Act’ into Law
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after legislation he helped introduce, the Rural Health Care Connectivity Act, was signed into law this week by President Obama. The bipartisan legislation was included as part of a larger bill, H.R. 2576, the TSCA Modernization Act. Specifically, Loebsack’s bill makes skilled nursing facilities eligible to receive funds through the Universal Service Fund’s Rural Healthcare Program. This is a $400 million program that provides discounts for telecommunications services so that rural healthcare providers pay comparable rates to their urban counterparts, and helps expand healthcare provider access to broadband services. “Access to robust broadband internet in skilled nursing facilities, no matter where they are located, is necessary for both the folks who live there, and for the doctors to more effectively treat patients. After having visited many high skilled nursing facilities across the district, I’ve gotten
Loebsack Introduces Legislation to Expand Access to Mental Health Services for Children
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement after he recently introduced legislation that would help remove some of the barriers that prevent children from receiving necessary mental health care. Loebsack’s legislation, the Children’s Access to Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Act, would provide federal matching funds to state and regional networks of mental health professionals, commonly known as Child Behavioral Health Access Programs. Currently, these networks are funded through a variety of private and public financing mechanisms. “At a time when there are simply not enough mental and behavioral health professionals across the country to provide services for those who need them, finding providers with pediatric experience can be especially difficult,” said Rep. Dave Loebsack. “For developing children and adolescents, coordinating critical mental health resources and primary care services simply makes sense. However, more work needs to be done to bolster th
