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 Being Sworn in at the Beginning of the 115th Congress
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today on the gaveling in of the new 115th Congress. Loebsack also comments on the House Republicans’ efforts to gut the independent Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) in their first act of the new Congress. “I am once again honored to represent the people of Iowa and to be their voice in Washington. I look forward to continuing to fight on behalf of Iowa’s hard-working families. From creating jobs here at home to boosting the rural economy and strengthening Social Security and Medicare, there is a lot of work that lies ahead of us. “I was dismayed that one of the first actions taken by House Republicans in the middle of the night was to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics. After claiming they wanted to ‘drain the swamp’ all this move did was prove that the GOP has already forgotten who they work for- the American people. I am pleased they have moved to reinstate much needed accountability by maintaining
Loebsack Reintroduces “Sgt. Brandon Ketchum Never Again Act” to Address Veteran Suicide Epidemic
Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02) and Congressman Steve Stivers (OH-15) today reintroduced bipartisan legislation to ensure no veteran seeking in-patient psychiatric care at a Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center is ever denied such care again. Last year, Sgt. Brandon Ketchum, a veteran from Davenport, Iowa, was turned away from a VA facility after seeking psychiatric help. After being denied care, he tragically took his own life. Sgt. Ketchum’s tragic death reinforces the need for a change at the VA to ensure any veteran who is suffering from a mental health issue gets the treatment they need and deserve. Simply put, under the Sgt. Brandon Ketchum Never Again Act, if a veteran asks for mental health care from the VA, they will get it. “I am proud to reintroduce the Sgt. Brandon Ketchum Never Again Act to ensure no veteran in crisis is ever turned away. This legislation would require VA Medical Centers to provide psychiatric care for any veteran that asks for it,” said Loebsac
Loebsack Statement on Trump’s Executive Order Banning Refuges
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order that impacts those fleeing persecution, families that have already been granted refugee status, legal permanent residents, and visa holders. Loebsack’s office also stands ready to assist any Iowan who is having troubles because of this executive order. Iowans who are in need of assistance can call toll-free 1-866-914-IOWA (4692) to speak with someone about their situation. “This executive order signed by President Trump is shameful and flies in the face of America’s values of being a welcoming place to those who are fleeing oppression. His actions fail to anticipate any unintended consequences, which put Americans at risk and gives fodder to our enemies. It also destroys the very bedrock of what our nation has stood for- life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This dangerous order must be rescinded. “I am thankful that our independent judiciary system stepped in
Loebsack Statement on Attending the Inauguration and Women’s March
Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today regarding his attendance at the swearing-in ceremony and the Women’s March on Saturday, January 21st. “There is no question that our nation, and in fact the President-elect himself, would be best served if he started behaving in a manner more reflective of the leader of the free world. The President-elect’s divisive, disturbing and distasteful remarks should have no place in our society. That being said, I have an enormous amount of respect for our nation’s history of peaceful transition of power and will stand with President Obama, President and Secretary Clinton and others who are attending. The next day, I will be attending the Women’s March in Washington with my daughter where I will join folks across the country to stand firm and fight against policies that will harm hard-working Iowans while working to create jobs, grow the economy, help our veterans and strengthen Social Security and Medicare.”
