Democrats Strip Derecho Relief From Massive “COVID” Spending Bill

Democrats Strip Derecho Relief From Massive “COVID” Spending Bill

“Despite Democrats’ ridiculous excuses for cutting this disaster assistance, my amendment was stripped for one simple, obvious reason: It was led by a Republican. Democrats chose to put politics over people, leaving struggling Iowa farmers in the dust. Iowans deserve better from Democrats. All of rural America deserves better from Democrats.”

President Biden’s Actions Ignore His Calls for Unity

President Biden’s Actions Ignore His Calls for Unity

In just two weeks, the president has already signed over twenty-five executive orders. That’s significantly more than any president in recent history in this short amount of time. Even the New York Times Editorial Board called on him to “Ease Up on the Executive Actions.” Now, I fully understand that the power of executive order is often unpopular when your party does not control the White House, but when you set out to be the “unifier-in-chief,” one would hope that the actions you take would unify—or at least be a little more mainstream. The reality is, that’s just not been the case.

Constitution Is Clear: Iowa GOP Delegation Was Right To Certify

Constitution Is Clear: Iowa GOP Delegation Was Right To Certify

Iowa Republicans take their constitutional duties seriously and are particularly sensitive to attacks on the Electoral College, which they believe allows smaller states the representation they need to preserve a level of independence from the federal government. The great triumph of our Constitution is the deliberate and intricate balance of power it created between the states and the federal government, as well as between the three branches of the federal government. That balance prevents tyranny by ensuring that no individual or oligarchy can easily take control of the country.

Iowans are, of course, free to disagree with their votes, but it is irresponsible for anyone to claim that these votes show disloyalty to our country, the Constitution, our party, or the principles of democratic and republican government.

Rep. Wheeler: 1619 Project is political propaganda, not history

Rep. Wheeler: 1619 Project is political propaganda, not history

I love our country. I love the values, principles, and truths it was founded on. And I spend a lot of time away from my young, growing family to defend and promote those values nearly four hours away from my home. When I get attacked for standing up for those values, principles and truths, I wear it as a badge of honor. As usual, when someone does not like something, and they cannot make a logical argument against it, it is automatically racist.

Axne Flip-Flops On Bipartisanship

Axne Flip-Flops On Bipartisanship

So Rep. Axne says she’s bipartisan in an interview and maintains;

“…we need to do everything as much as we possibly can from a bipartisan perspective”, but it turns out before she gave the interview where she said that she had refused to work with Rep. Smith, a Republican. 

But then after Politico asks about it, she says, essentially, “My bad, JK. LOL.” 

So is Axne working with Rep. Smith now?

Democrats: School Choice For Me, But Not For Thee

Democrats: School Choice For Me, But Not For Thee

TLDR: Joe Biden, Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg, and Bernie Sanders’ wife went to private schools.  Biden and Steyer sent their kids there too. Elizabeth Warren sent her son to private school (and then got caught lying about it). All of them are vehemently opposed to allowing kids to attend private schools unless they are rich enough (like these Democrats) to do so.

Iowa Democrats and National Democrats talk out of both sides of their mouths on the issue of education. This is what you get when on one side, you have union money and infrastructure that the liberals need to win and, on the other, the realization that your local school isn’t going to give your kid the education you want for them—a perfect recipe for the situation we are witnessing under the golden dome this week.

All Kids Deserve Educational Opportunities

All Kids Deserve Educational Opportunities

Opponents of school choice say the “Students First Scholarship” will steal money from public schools. This is not true.  Iowa students are funded an average of $16,314 per student. The “Students First Scholarship” would use dollars already allocated for students in failing schools, $5,200 to be exact. The school that the student left would have more dollars per remaining students. Parents get to send their child to the school of their choice, and local taxpayers save money. It’s a win for everybody!
