Loebsack addresses Washington Issues


Loebsack is concerned about Iowa’s ability to serve the mentally ill, due to fewer doctors, scarce resources and facilities to care for them. With budgets being squeezed at all levels of government, this issue could get worse.

Finally, Loebsack discussed his endorsement of fellow Rep. Bruce Braley in Braley’s run for the US Senate in 2014. Loebsack was a national delegate for Braley while working as a professor at Cornell College. He, and former Rep. Leonard Boswell, believe Braley would be the best person to succeed Tom Harkin.

Congress reconvened on Monday. Loebsack was going back with goals of working on a transportation bill and trying to reinstate wrestling in the Olympics, as well as the matters previously mentioned. Following this interview in Pella, Loebsack toured Central College.
