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 Committee Passage of Trumpcare
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee passed legislation to repeal the ACA. Republicans continued through the night to quickly jam through legislation that was drafted in secret and introduced less than two days before the committee hearing.   “Republicans have had more than seven years to come up with a plan of their own to ‘repeal and replace’ Obamacare. Instead, in less than two days of committee meetings, Republicans pushed through legislation that rips healthcare coverage from up to 10 million Americans. On top of that, Republicans pushed this bill through despite not having a cost estimate from the Congressional Budget Office.   “What we do know about Trumpcare is almost as scary for Iowans as what we don’t. The bill that Republicans pushed through the committee gives tax breaks to the wealthiest at the expense of low-income and working families. This bill will lead to a rat
Loebsack Statement on the CBO Report Confirming Republican Healthcare Plan Rips Coverage from Millions
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released their report on the Republican plan to repeal the ACA. The report concluded that in the next 10 years, 24 million fewer Americans will have health insurance coverage than under the current bill. “Today’s CBO report confirms what many had feared – that this Republican plan rips healthcare coverage from millions of Americans while giving the top 400 highest income families an annual $7 million tax break. The bill also puts 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. I remain committed to working to fix the ACA so that it works better for all Americans.” Key Findings of the CBO Report - 24 million Americans will lose their health coverage – including 14 million in 2018 alone; - Under the GOP bill, 19 percent of the none
Loebsack Statement on House Republicans’ Plan to Repeal the ACA
Congressman Dave Loebsack made the following statement today after House Republicans finally released their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). According to a recent report, hundreds of thousands of people in Iowa would be negatively affected by the repeal of the ACA. This includes 146,300 Iowans who enrolled in Medicaid under the ACA’s expansion, as well as 370,648 Iowans who are in jeopardy of losing important wellness provisions, like cancer screenings. “After seven years and multiple failed attempts, House Republicans finally released their plan to ‘repeal and replace’ Obamacare. Since the debate about how to improve our nation’s healthcare system began, my number one priority has been to ensure all Iowans and Americans have access to quality, affordable care. To put it bluntly, instead of moving us forward, the GOP plan released today takes us backwards. It puts the healthcare of Iowans back in the hands of insurance companies, will lead to the rationing of
Loebsack Continues Effort to Support Students Relying On Pell Grants For College Education & Training
Congressman Dave Loebsack today continued his effort to give more flexibility to students receiving Pell Grants by introducing the Flexible Pell Grant for 21st Century Students Act. This legislation will allow Pell Grant recipients to take advantage of the grants year-round. In 2007, Loebsack was the author of a provision that created year-round Pell Grants in the Higher Education Opportunity Act, which was signed into law in 2008. However, because of budget cuts, the year-round Pell Grant was eliminated in 2011. This bipartisan bill is cosponsored by Representatives Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Elise Stefanik (NY-21) and Carlos Curbelo (FL-26). “As someone who would not have been able to attend college without the help of student aid, I was proud to author the original year-round Pell legislation that was signed into law in 2008,” said Congressman Dave Loebsack.  “After visiting schools across Iowa, I have heard from countless students whose ability to afford college would be s
