Rejected Congressman David Young’s party bosses are growing increasingly desperate to distract from Young’s record of putting partisanship and special interest profits ahead of Iowa families – and their latest ad proves it.
The truth is, over her first term in Congress, Cindy Axne has stood up to her party and put Iowa taxpayers before party loyalty – and that’s more than anyone can say about David Young. Here’s what you need to know:
- While 75% of Cindy Axne’s votes in Congress have been bipartisan, David Young has bragged about voting lockstep with his party’s leaders 99% of the time.
- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Cindy Axne for her record of standing up for Iowa’s economy, naming her the most bipartisan member of the entire Iowa delegation.
- While Cindy Axne has fought for fiscal responsibility in Washington – including by fighting any level of congressional pay raise until the federal budget is balanced – David Young supported a tax bill that gave over 83% of its benefits to the wealthiest 1% of Americans and added billions to the federal budget deficit.
“Rejected Congressman David Young’s Washington party bosses know that his record is unpopular – what’s why they’re spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to hide it,” said Ian Mariani, spokesperson for Cindy Axne for Congress. “When it mattered most, Young voted to give wealthy corporations as massive handout at the expense of Iowa’s middle class. That tells you all you need to know about his values.”
