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.

Loebsack Statement on House Passage of Republicans’ Healthcare Repeal Bill
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after House Republicans passed legislation that would repeal the ACA, putting in jeopardy the healthcare coverage of more than 171,000 Iowans and 24 million Americans. This legislation also opens the door to eliminating the guarantee that pre-existing conditions will be covered for 1.3 million Iowans. “Today’s vote is the culmination of seven years of Republicans using healthcare as a political football rather than have an honest debate on making healthcare more affordable and accessible for all Iowans. When the ACA was passed, we closed the door on insurance companies being able to charge someone who has been sick whatever they want. This bill opens that door, leaving it possible that 1.3 million Iowans with pre-existing conditions like asthma, diabetes and cancer will be subject to higher payments or even the loss of coverage altogether. “On top of all of that, this bill gives massive tax breaks to million
Loebsack, Bacon Reintroduce Legislation to Cut Member Pay
Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02) announced today that he has reintroduced legislation that would cut Member’s pay for the first time since the Great Depression. Loebsack was joined by Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) in cosponsoring the legislation. The bipartisan Congressional Halt in Pay Increases (CHIP IN) and Cut Congressional Pay Act (HR 1786) would cut their pay by 10 percent and repeal automatic pay increases that currently take place. “I came to Washington to fight on behalf of hard working Iowans and I strongly believe that those elected to serve shouldn’t be in it to line their own pockets. That is why it is time to cut Members’ pay and stop the automatic increases that come along with it,” said Loebsack. “As part of my commitment, I will continue to fight to hold Members of Congress accountable and ensure they are doing the job they were sent to Washington to do. It is time to end the pay system that has prevented any cut in Congressional pay since 1933 – over eight

Year-Round Pell Grant Eligibility for Students that Loebsack & Bustos Fought for Included in Today’s Omnibus Legislation
Congressman Dave Loebsack and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos today announced that the fiscal year 2017 Omnibus Bill, which is expected to be passed in the House today, provides year-round Pell Grant eligibility which was the focus of bipartisan legislation they introduced this year. “As someone who was only able to attend college with the help of student aid, I was proud to author the original year-round Pell legislation that gave students additional flexibility to get the education they deserve,” said Congressman Dave Loebsack. “Restoring funding for the year-round Pell program in the spending bill will help reduce barriers to higher education institutions, which has been my goal since introducing this legislation. This bill would help provide Iowa’s students with the necessary training and resources required to be successful in the 21st century global economy.” “To get ahead in the world, a lot of hardworking young men and women take classes in the spring, summer
