Fact #86: One year of King’s work and this is what it gets us?
Congressman King is struggling to make the case that he has been a strong leader on the Farm Bill. Now, he claims that he has “been working on [the Farm Bill] for more than a year, pulling pieces together.” That’s a bold statement considering that after a year of work he can’t convince his own party to bring it up for a vote.
While Congressman King may not be able to make a strong argument for the Farm Bill, he does make it clear that he’s not an effective voice for rural America. If he was, he should’ve been able to convince the leadership in his own party to bring the Farm Bill up for a vote, instead of blocking it. When they refused to bring it up, he should’ve been the first member of his party to sign the discharge petition for the bill in the House – something he still hasn’t done.

Instead of making outrageous statements and appearing on cable news, perhaps he should’ve focused a bit more attention on a bill that’s vital to rural America and the farmers and livestock producers in the 4th District.
Fact #87: Steve King LOLs at raising taxes
It was all a joke, that’s how Congressman King is reacting to fallout from a Ft. Dodge Messenger article this week saying he was “thinking about introducing a bill, which if it became law, would repeal everything Obama has signed into law.” Questioned about the plan yesterday in Des Moines, King defended his remarks saying, “To quote Herman Cain, ‘Get a sense of humor!’”
Unfortunately, while Congressman King is trying his hand at stand up, middle class families want action. They want a member of Congress who doesn’t this it’s funny to talk about about raising their taxes, defunding veterans’ programs, or killing the renewable energy industry. They want someone who will consistently be on their side.
While Congressman King tries to pass this off as a joke, he still hasn’t explained his decades of support for the Fair Tax, a national 23 percent sales tax on everything you buy that raises taxes on the middle class while giving the rich a huge tax break. He also hasn’t explained why he believes seniors should pay more out-of-pocket for health care. Are these jokes, too? Iowans can only hope.
