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 Welcomes USDA Disaster Designation
Congressman Dave Loebsack today applauded the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for designating three Iowa counties that have seen extensive damage from the recent drought as primary natural disaster areas. Specifically, the counties of Appanoose, Mahaska and Monroe are included in this declaration. “I applaud the USDA for their decision to assist the farmers and rural areas that were greatly affected by the drought this summer,” said Loebsack. “I have toured some of the affected areas and have seen firsthand the damage to the crops. I will continue to fight to ensure those with significant damage get the assistance they need.” Benefits are also available for the contiguous counties of Davis, Jasper, Keokuk, Lucas, Marion, Poweshiek, Wapello, and Wayne.

Loebsack Demands Answers from Equifax on Data Breach
Congressman Dave Loebsack, along with his Democratic colleagues from the Energy and Commerce Committee, demanded answers from Equifax after the company announced a massive data breach has compromised the personal information of more than 143 million Americans. In a letter sent to Richard Smith, the Chairman and CEO of Equifax, the members laid out a series of questions to gain additional information about who was affected, how Equifax plans to make impacted customers whole and what the company is doing to ensure additional breaches do not occur. The letter also asks why Equifax took more than a month to notify consumers of the unauthorized access to their personal information.   Information is available on the Iowa Attorney General’s website for Iowans whose data may have been compromised.   “We are writing with serious concerns about the immense scale of this data breach, and we have a number of questions about whether Equifax took appropriate steps to
Loebsack Introduces Legislation to Hold Congress Accountable During Healthcare Debate
Congressman Dave Loebsack today introduced legislation to ensure Members of Congress are held accountable when dealing with the healthcare coverage of millions of Americans. Loebsack’s legislation, the Holding Congress Accountable on Healthcare Act, would mandate that if Congress passes legislation, which makes changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the enactment of that legislation leads to an increase of the uninsured rate, Members of Congress would no longer be eligible to be enrolled under a health plan offered through an ACA Exchange, Federal Employee Health Benefit Program, or any other Federal health care program. They would also no longer be eligible for any Federal tax credit or subsidy with respect to health insurance coverage. “Members of Congress are elected by their constituents to be their voice in Washington, not pass laws that do one thing for Iowans but leave Members untouched. When Members of Congress vote on legislation that could
Loebsack, Grassley, Ernst, Johnson Issue Joint Statement on VA OIG Review of Brandon Ketchum’s Care at VA
The Office of Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA OIG) today released the results of its review of the circumstances of veteran Brandon Ketchum’s suicide and whether Ketchum received adequate mental health treatment at the Iowa City VA Health Care System. Rep. Dave Loebsack, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Sen. Joni Ernst and Sen. Ron Johnson sought the review.  The Members of Congress made the following comment.   “This case is a tragic example of why we must do better for our veterans. It also illustrates the importance of having independent watchdogs at federal agencies.  Inspectors general review agency work and point out problems that need to be fixed and ensure that policies and procedures in place are adequate.  In this case, the inspector general report made four recommendations to improve mental health treatment for veterans going forward, but could not determine if these shortcomings impacted Brandon’s care.  With an average
