As your congressman, it is my job to listen to you and be your voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. It’s a position and duty I take seriously. I’m honored to do it every day and push forward on the issues Iowans care about. Last week, the Iowa State Fair brought together Iowans from across the state to celebrate our heritage.
Congressman David Young joined WHO-TV live during the 4 p.m. newscast to speak about the administration's $12 billion trade aid package. Watch the entire interview below.
"What this really is though, is the administration, the President, admitting that his trade policies are hurting Iowa farmers and producers, and all across the heartland for that matter," said Congressman Young during the interview. "Farmers want markets, they want trade, and not necessarily this aid."
Iowa has the best workers who produce high quality products shipped around the world. In 2016, Iowans shipped over $12 billion worth of products to other countries.
As I travel to each county every month, I have the opportunity to tour the farms, manufacturers, processing facilities, and other businesses where these products are made. I am always impressed with the ingenuity and hard work I see from the folks at each stop.

Iran is one of the world's - if not the biggest - leading sponsors and supporters of terrorism and grows more dangerous every day. Nevertheless, the Obama administration pushed an agreement which rewarded Iran with $150 billion to not pursue its goal of developing nuclear weapons. This deal was bogus and I and many of my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives opposed it and tried to block it.
President Trump has chosen to decertify the Iran Nuclear Deal. This means the administration believes the deal is no longer in the national security interests of the United States. As required by law, Congress has 60 days to decide whether or not to pull out of the deal and reimpose the sanctions which were lifted when the deal was signed. Congress may choose not to act which will keep the United States in the deal.
