October 20, 2017 Weekly Report

When watching or reading news, we often hear the strides our economy is making – from the low unemployment rate in our state to the stock market continuing to set record highs nearly every week. However, when speaking with folks across the Third District, recognize not all our friends and neighbors are seeing the benefits of our improving economy.  Too many are feeling left out or left behind. 

August 23, 2017 Survey

As I travel to each of the 16 counties of Iowa's Third Congressional District each and every month, I meet with Iowans to hear what is most important to them.

This week's :60 Second Survey asks you to tell me what one issue you think the United States Congress should be focusing on - if you were only able to choose just one.

August 1, 2017 Weekly Report

If you’re wired into social media, the internet, 24-hour cable news or talk radio, you would think the only things coming out of Washington, D.C. this year are President Trump; Russia; controversy; investigations; protests; anger; and gridlock.

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.

Federal income tax forms.

Tax simplification has been a topic of discussion since the 115th Congress began in January of this year. The debate has moved from "if" Congress will take steps to reform and simplify the federal tax code to "when" it will happen.

One major component of tax simplification will be through changes to federal income taxes.

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.

April 24, 2017 Survey

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.
