Waterloo, IA - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after President Obama announced new Rural Economic Initiatives while traveling in Iowa:

“We've lost 54,000 manufacturers in the last decade, unemployment remains at nine percent, and many Iowa families have seen tremendous challenges over the last three years. While I have disagreed with President Obama on a number of policies, including the most recent Deficit Deal, the continuation of the costly war in Afghanistan, and the extension of the Bush tax bonuses for the rich, I'm pleased to see that today he announced investments in rural small businesses and job growth. I look forward to working with the President to make sure these proposals are implemented in a way that creates jobs in Iowa and gets our economy back on track.”
