Axne Delivers For Iowa Families While Republicans Sell Us Out


Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement after today’s historic vote in the U.S. House passing the Build Back Better Act, with Rep. Cindy Axne voting in favor and Reps. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Ashley Hinson, and Randy Feenstra voting in opposition:

“Build Back Better delivers for Iowa families. Build Back Better will make sure every grandparent can hear their grandchild say ‘I love you’ by expanding Medicare to include hearing coverage. Build Back Better will make sure parents are home with their babies the first time they smile by providing family leave. And Build Back Better will deliver for families who are struggling to keep up with corporations who are jacking up prices, fattening their bottom lines, and funding Republican campaigns with our hard earned dollars.”

“Iowans and Americans are united. Build Back Better is incredibly popular, and thankfully a group of principled lawmakers like Rep. Cindy Axne are standing with us. Meanwhile, partisan politicians like Reps. Ashley Hinson, Marianette Miller-Meeks, and Randy Feenstra sold us out to their big pharma and big oil donors and tried to block a bill for child care, affordable medicine, and protecting our air and water that seventy percent of Americans support.”
