Friends,

Over the last district work period, I had the great privilege of traveling throughout the Third District and meeting with folks in every corner of Southwest Iowa. With 95 total stops, I visited 16 counties, 28 towns, held 10 town halls and traveled more than 1,000 miles to connect with you. I'm grateful to everyone who took the time to meet with me.

As a Member of Congress, one of my most important responsibilities is to nominate constituents to our prestigious military academies. I am now accepting applications to nominate constituents between the ages of 17-22 to four U.S. service academies: the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. These institutions provide college-aged Americans with a tuition-free, four-year undergraduate education and prepare them to be officers of some of our nation's uniformed services. Upon graduation, service academy graduates are commissioned as officers in the active or reserve components of the military or merchant marine for a minimum of five years.

My top priority in Congress is to lower the cost of your health care. I have heard from too many Iowans who have been forced into debt due to medical bills, don’t have access to lifesaving care, or have to choose between paying for their prescription drugs or putting food on the table. Every Iowan and American deserves access to affordable, quality health care.

Like you, I’m sick and tired of corporations and special interests running the show. I’ve been in office for almost six months now, and I’ve been shocked at the Washington dysfunction and political corruption I’ve seen. I’m in Congress to fight for Iowans, not for myself or for special interests.

Iowa Congresswoman Cindy Axne is pushing for a lifetime ban on members of congress becoming lobbyists after they leave the U.S. House or Senate.

Axne said over the last several years there’s been a “massive” increase in the number of former elected officials who stay in Washington to become a lobbyist.

Friends,

As I’ve traveled throughout the Third District the last few months, I have heard from so many of you about the daily impact that rising prescription drugs costs is having on your lives.
