Des Moines – “Three Iowa visits already this year clearly show that this administration is worried about its reelection prospects in November.  As a resident and businessman from Ames, I have witnessed firsthand recent graduates struggling to find jobs in this economy.  With a 13.3% national unemployment rate for young men and women ages 20-24, Vice President Biden and the administration have a lot to explain.   This administration’s policies have failed not only the American people generally, but young, eager Iowans coming right out of college in particular.”

Chairman Spiker added:  “With gas prices rapidly approaching $4.00 a gallon, per capita share of national debt outpacing that of Greece, and no regulatory or tax relief in sight for small business, Iowans of all ages are very worried about the prospect of four more years of failed policy from this administration.  Iowans now understand that the Vice President and the administration have no real solutions for the economy or American manufacturing.   We need a new direction in this country, and Iowans of all political stripes will judge this administration not by its rhetoric but by its record this November.”
