May 18, 2017 Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman David Young today took an important step to protect the economic well-being of Iowans who may be caught in a mandated individual tax penalty catch-22 next year created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA)/Obamacare Law. Aetna and Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield announced their plan to pull out of Iowa’s individual health insurance market for 2018.

I believe our tax code is complicated and does not work. It’s time we scrap it, replace it, and simplify it to cut the burden on all Iowans. Washington has a responsibility to be more efficient, more effective, and more accountable in protecting hardworking Americans. My mission is to fight for common-sense tax reforms that recognize all taxpayers are owed a simpler, fairer, and more efficient system that is accountable and responsive to them.

As the President addressed Congress and Americans this week – he outlined his priorities for this great nation.

I thought this would be an appropriate time to discuss some of my priorities for the upcoming year. During my service in Congress, my promise has always been to focus on issues impacting Iowa and making our communities a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I spend each day focusing on the people and concerns of the Third Congressional District. I take the role of representing you and to do it the best I can very seriously.

Growing up in Van Meter, I learned the value of a dollar as a young boy, waking up early to deliver newspapers to the folks in our community. After moving to Johnston as a teenager, I spent my summers in the hot sun working at the Iowa State Fair or as a decontamination aide at a hospital. In college in Des Moines, I waited tables at a restaurant. My parents and grandparents instilled in me a strong Iowa work ethic - I worked hard - while knowing that anyone who puts in the time, the effort and the energy can achieve endless opportunity in this great country.

The Obama Administration kicked off the annual budgeting process with their 2017 request to Congress. In the U.S. House of Representatives, my colleagues and I are reviewing the proposal and writing our own budget proposal which we'll unveil, and vote on our federal fiscal blueprint in the coming weeks. I will only support a budget that balances, doesn't raise taxes, holds the line on spending and makes government more efficient and effective for hardworking Iowans.

This past congressional work period, I had a busy schedule meeting with folks all across our Third Congressional District. I make it my mission to travel and meet with folks in every one of the District’s 16 counties at least once each month, and I greatly appreciated my recent opportunities to engage with the hardworking folks I am proud to represent.

When Iowans talk to me about government being the problem and not the solution, they often point to the ever increasing federal machine that strangles our economy and job creation in Iowa and across the country.
