Tonight, Representative Cindy Axne highlighted her independent record of fighting for Iowans and putting her constituents ahead of Washington politics – while reminding voters of the dangerous record of her predecessor.
For the Iowa voters who tuned in tonight’s final televised debate, Cindy Axne highlighted the stark contrast between her record and the record of rejected Congressman David Young.
On health care:
- Cindy Axne fought to pass legislation to lower the cost of health care coverage and reduce prescription drug prices for Iowa families.
- David Young voted to gut health care for millions and repeal protections for Iowans living with pre-existing conditions.
On the economy:
- Cindy has fought to protect Iowa jobs from outsourcing and ensure all Iowa families succeed through investments in small businesses and infrastructure.
- David Young voted to give massive tax breaks to big corporations at the expense of middle class families.
On delivering for Iowa:
- Cindy Axne has worked through crises like floods and a trade war and secured wins for Iowa by working across the aisle – including by reviving critical tax breaks that expired on Young’s watch.
- Congressman David Young bragged about voting lockstep with his party’s leaders 99% of the time while in Washington, including when he voted to privatize Medicare and support legislation that opened the door to cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
“Over the course of three televised debates, Iowa voters have seen firsthand the stark difference in choices they have for their communities’ representation in Congress,” said Ian Mariani, spokesperson for Cindy Axne for Congress. “Over multiple terms in Washington, David Young repeatedly voted to gut health care for Iowa families and put corporate tax breaks ahead of Iowans, their livelihoods, and their benefits. But after only 22 months in Congress, Cindy Axne has shown her commitment to representing all 16 counties of southwest Iowa by showing up, listening to her constituents, working on solutions amidst numerous crises, and delivering wins that range from flood relief to health care tax repeals.”
