To the editor:
We have followed Congressman Steve King's campaign since redistricting in 2010. King is running for the new 4th Congressional District, which includes Fort Dodge. As citizens who are concerned about the direction this country is heading, we are pleased with King's plan to get America working again.
King explains the burdens ObamaCare is putting on America's businesses. Ernst & Young recently estimated 710,000 jobs would be lost when ObamaCare is fully implemented. Additionally, ObamaCare creates 20 new taxes on the middle-class. Christie Vilsack supports ObamaCare and its job-killing effects and tax hikes.
King also has a plan to rein in Washington's out-of-control spending. We can't understand why citizens have to live within their means, but government doesn't have to. King's plan calls for a Balanced Budget Amendment, but Christie Vilsack calls this bipartisan plan "a gimmick." Christie Vilsack just wants to continue down the path of record debt, which is now over $16 trillion.
Christie Vilsack has said she supports the Obama-Pelosi policies that have led to unemployment over 8 percent for 43 consecutive months. We need more Steve Kings in Congress.
Join us in voting for Congressman Steve King.
