(AMES) – Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron) today released the following statement regarding President Obama’s visit to Iowa:
“President Obama’s visit to Iowa, a state he carried handily in 2008, shows me he has realized his failed policies leading to unemployment above 8 percent for 41 straight months, massive debt nearing $16 trillionand tax hikes on Iowa families have led to voter’s remorse.
“While President Obama is traveling to Iowa to try to save his presidency and ObamaCare, I will vote tomorrow to repeal ObamaCare and its job-killing effects. My language for repealing ObamaCare passed the House last year and tomorrow I expect my repeal language to pass again. Christie Vilsack’s unwillingness to vote for ObamaCare’s repeal would lead to tax hikes, more than $1.5 trillion in government spending and put Americans’ health care coverage in jeopardy.
“Iowans in the new 4th Congressional District have rejected Obama’s failed agenda. They deserve to know why Christie Vilsack, who has said she is running to help re-elect President Obama, has proposed raising Iowa families’ taxes by an average of $2,491 per tax return and called a Balanced Budget Amendment to reign in Washington spending ‘a gimmick’. She is running to advance policies that have led to record unemployment and debt.
“America needs Governor Romney to lead our country. Governor Romney achieved significant success in the private sector, governed effectively, has balanced a budget and met payroll. Under President Romney we will restore our American Dream that has been eroding under President Obama.”
