August 25, 2017 Weekly Report

One of the most important functions of any Congressional office, House or Senate, is the casework services provided to constituents. My staff and I know Iowans call, visit and email one of my four Constituent Services Offices when they have hit a roadblock with Social Security, the IRS or renewing a passport. Understandably, most have become frustrated with the red tape and cumbersome bureaucratic nature of federal government agencies and programs.

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.

July 14, 2017 Weekly Report

There is a famous quote attributed to John Lennon that is, “life is what happens to us when we are busy making other plans”. Often when talking with veterans of our armed forces, this sentiment enters the conversation when discussing unexpected life paths after active duty – especially when it comes to their educational pursuits.

HOLDING THE VA ACCOUNTABLE 

One of the most concerning issues I hear about from Iowans is regarding the quality of care our veterans receive.

Helping Our Veterans in Crisis

Since 1949 the month of May has been known as “Mental Health Month” in an effort to shine a light on a very serious problem facing far too many. For the thousands of Iowans fighting this silent battle, this month is especially for them. The month of May is about sharing stories and making sure everyone fighting this battle knows they are not in this alone.
