Legislative Republicans ignored the concerns of Iowans this session and broke their promise to create jobs and raise family incomes. While the GOP follows the lead of special interests and moves Iowa in the wrong direction, Democrats will keep listening to Iowans, hold Republican politicians accountable, and fight to build an economy that works for all Iowa families.
