GETTING BACK TO BASICS

Iowans don’t ask for much. Most of us just want a decent paying job and the chance to lead a happy, healthy life. We’re hard-working people who believe that’s what it takes to get ahead.

But many Iowans who are working hard are still struggling to get by. Stagnant wages, rising health care costs, and fewer dollars going to job training and public education are hurting Iowa families.

Democrats believe it’s time to get back to the basics—to help improve Iowans’ everyday lives and give each of us opportunities to get ahead. Our Putting Iowans First plan focuses on our shared Iowa values, including better paying jobs, a great education, and affordable health care.

Democrats believe when we invest in people, Iowans win.

What follows is an outline of priorities that reflects Iowa values. We hope you’ll share your thoughts with us to ensure we are doing all we can to help you and your family get ahead in life. Working together, we can ensure Iowa’s best days lie ahead.

 

Yours in Service,

Janet Petersen                                                                                                      Mark Smith
Democratic Leader of the Iowa Senate                                                            Democratic Leader of the Iowa House
