Washington, D.C. – In light of today’s report by the Bureau of Economic Analysis that the gross domestic product (GDP) contracted .1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, Congressman Dave Loebsack again called on Washington to stop the partisan politics and work together to set our nation on a fiscally responsible course.

“What is even more unacceptable is that this [Bureau of Economic Analysis] report again demonstrates that Washington continues to be part of the problem, not part of the solution,” Loebsack wrote in a letter to the President and Congressional Leadership.  “To say this is utterly unacceptable does not adequately express my or Iowans’ disappointment in Washington.  It is past time to act to stop sequestration, rebuild our economy, and set our country on a stable, fiscally responsible path forward.  Delays and partisan politics cannot continue.”
