When I visit folks throughout the Third District, they share with me their successes, and unfortunately, their struggles. I take their stories with me to Congress where I work as hard as I can to help Iowans.
One way to help is by providing tax relief to folks who are struggling to get by, living paycheck to paycheck. And I've met too many folks in the district working more than one job trying to make ends meet.
Congress has been working over the past several months to provide deserved tax relief to hardworking Iowa taxpayers. As we near the finish line, there are groups fighting hard to protect the decades old and status quo tax code which is broken for most everyday Iowans. In their battle to protect the establishment which has left so many individuals and families financially struggling, these groups are spreading falsehoods in an all-out effort to stop progress on common sense tax relief. I thought it was important to dispel some of these myths and present the facts.

It’s been difficult to hear or see the reality over the blaring and flashing “BREAKING NEWS” alerts which fill the airwaves continuously each broadcast hour.
The reality is the most common sounds coming from the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017 are the words “the bill is passed”.
The week ahead overview will be sent each week Congress is in session. All times are in Central Time.
FIGHTING FOR RURAL IOWA
The county courthouse, the hometown cafe, and the mom and pop shop on the square across Iowa are a few of the defining features making our beautiful state unique. Our small town values have defined us for centuries and our work ethic has kept us humble. Unfortunately, over the past few years, we have seen small towns getting smaller and the mom and pop shops we have been visiting for years are closing their doors, threatening our every day way of life.
As I travel through Iowa’s Third District each week, I hear frustrations from many of our friends and neighbors who simply want Washington to get out of the way and stop telling them how to live their lives or run their businesses.
