Congresswoman from Iowa’s 1st Congressional District #ia01 Former State Rep for IA House District 99. Paid for by Finkenauer For Congress.
This July 4, I’m thinking about my grandfathers — one served in WWII and the other served on the Dubuque Fire Department. Both embody the meaning of service to our country and our community — the service that we honor this and every Independence Day. #IA01 http://www.communitynewspapergroup.com/independence_bulletin_journal/opinion/we-can-honor-our-vetera...
We can rebuild roads & bridges, create jobs, help local business, grow our economy and expand access to broadband — it’s all here in our signature infrastructure package. I’m proud of the bipartisan wins I secured to make our communities stronger. #IA01 https://iowacapitaldispatch.com/2020/06/27/u-s-house-infrastructure-plans-could-benefit-rural-iowa-d...
Helping our farmers and protecting biofuels isn’t a partisan issue — Democrats and Republicans agree we’ve got to defend our homegrown industry. I’ll always stand up for Iowa — against Big Oil, the EPA or anyone else. #IA01 https://www.tamatoledonews.com/opinion/editorials/2020/06/26/no-more-broken-promises-defending-the-r...
I voted this week to enhance the ACA and make funding permanent for the Children's Health Insurance Program. The GOP pushed a plan to cancel coverage for 227,000 Iowans and eliminate preexisting conditions protections for 1.2 million. I'm on your side. They're not. #IA01
Anyone who drives Highway 20 in Dubuque County knows how dangerous the Thunder Hills Road intersection is. I went to see it for myself — and talk about how our new infrastructure legislation will make our roads smoother and safer. #IA01 https://www.telegraphherald.com/news/tri-state/article_abca060a-9a68-556f-90b0-e46b496e2da5.html
We all know investing in infrastructure is a great way to boost our economy. My legislation protecting local workers and requiring American-made materials will make sure we get the most for our money. #IA01 https://www.americanmanufacturing.org/blog/entry/legislation-aims-to-close-this-buy-america-loophole
We fought hard for real investment in Iowa & areas that have long been forgotten in DC. 3 of my 4 bills, & 3 of my amendments that are part of this much needed investment are bipartisan. You don’t hear that much in DC these days, but we got it done. #ia01 https://iowacapitaldispatch.com/2020/06/27/u-s-house-infrastructure-plans-could-benefit-rural-iowa-d...
This shocking story raises critical questions about the safety of our troops — including Iowans — in Afghanistan and @President Trump' commitment to holding Russia accountable. The administration owes Congress and the American people an explanation. Now. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/26/us/politics/russia-afghanistan-bounties.html #IA01
So, about opportunities for American jobs, my provision in INVEST Act fixes a loophole @Gov. Kim Reynolds & state house GOP created in Iowa immediately after ‘16 election which allowed Chinese steel & low wages for federal projects in Iowa’s communities. Rethinking that I hope! #ia01
. @Gov. Kim Reynolds on today's American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting: "I'm excited to be here to talk about really rethinking and expediting the way that we can invest in providing opportunities to Americans."
The @GOP wants to cancel healthcare for millions of Americans during a pandemic. And after failing to do it in Congress, they’re asking the courts to do it for them. This is personal. This is what we’re fighting. These are the stakes in 2020. #IA01 https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/politics/2020/06/25/trump-administration-supreme-court-...
All they have is lies, misinformation, & a superPac violating rules to spread it. Their playbook is the worst of politics. It’s why people hate it. Whether you're D, R, no party, it’s disrespectful to our district & constituents. #IA01 Help us fight back: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/americaspac
What would our $500B infrastructure package mean for #IA01? New bridges, better roads, safe routes to school, financial assistance for small towns, Buy America & fair wages provisions for workers — the best investment in rural infrastructure we’ve seen! https://kwwl.com/2020/06/22/finkenauer-infrastructure-act/
“So I said to my people, ‘slow the testing down please!”- The President of the United States of America where over 119,000 Americans have died .... my god. I don’t care who you are democrat, republic, independent we deserve better. Our country deserves so much better... #ia01
