Roxanne Conlin on Budget & Economy

 


Fed budget serves as ATM for big banks & special interests

The federal government should use the same practical, kitchen table budgeting principles Iowa families use every day--live within your means, save for a rainy day, and work towards a balanced budget. ˙We need an honest budgeting process that ensures government is effective, efficient, & working for the middle-class--instead of serving as an ATM for the big banks & other special interests. We must invest in education, job training, and health care to create jobs and promote long-term economic growth.

Hold Grassley accountable for Wall Street greed

When Senator Grassley deregulated Wall Street, he threw open the doors to unrestrained greed and recklessness. Communities across our state are now suffering from home foreclosures, farm foreclosures and bankruptcies.

Senator Grassley and his colleagues allowed the greed on Wall Street to put all of us in jeopardy. Iowans lost homes, jobs and dreams of retirement. The irresponsible deregulation of Wall Street put us all at risk. In November, we can hold those responsible accountable.
