Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) congratulates Iowa Democrats on important victories on Election Night, including Abby Finkenauer’s win in IA-1, Dave Loebsack’s win in IA-2, Cindy Axne’s win in IA-3 and Rob Sand’s victory in the State Auditor’s race.

This week, the Treasury Department said that due to rising deficits, government borrowing this year will more than double. In total, the Treasury plans to borrow more than $1.3 trillion in 2018. Last year, President Trump signed a $1.5 trillion tax cut that was not offset by other revenue or spending changes.
“President Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship by executive order is clearly unconstitutional but beyond that, it is just plain un-American. Instead of working on bipartisan immigration reform that we need to solve real problems, he wants to inflame and divide. I believe that a majority of Americans are tired of playing his game. The onus is on the Democratic Party to offer the country a real alternative agenda based around bringing the country together and implementing concrete policies that improve people’s lives.”
