I am a candidate for the United States Senate because I believe Congress is not working, and for the good of all of our people, our country, and our future, we badly need Congress to work again.
As a state senator, I have come to understand that government is not a debating society. Government is a practical tool we can use, in the words of our Constitution, to “promote the general welfare” and “form a more perfect Union.”
In the Iowa Legislature, I have worked with citizens and legislators across party lines to pass legislation to assist Iowans with flood recovery and invest in flood protection; to expand solar power, wind energy, ethanol, and biodiesel for jobs and the environment; to invest in soil conservation and clean water; to strengthen education from early childhood to college and job training; to provide health insurance for children and low-income working families; to support senior citizens and veterans; to promote better health including mental health and public safety – government’s first responsibility.
We can get Congress to work again for our people, our country, and our future. We can change the way we conduct campaigns and elect people who are committed to making Congress and government work. Congress can take action to help our people confront the many challenges facing our country.
I hope you will join this effort. I hope you will let me know what you want Congress and our country to accomplish. Working together, we can build a safe, healthy, peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future for all Americans.
