In this weekly Republican address, Iowa Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) offers a scathing critique of liberalism.
Ernst, who is running against Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley to fill retiring Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-IA) seat said, “The problem with America today is that Washington is full of liberals who think government is the solution to every problem. They think that nothing can be solved unless Washington is involved, and so they grow our government, every year making it more intrusive and more involved in our lives. Today, government tells us what doctors to see, what kind of light bulbs to use, and in some places, even how much soda we can drink.”
Ernst, who is a battalion commander in the Iowa Army National Guard with the rank of lieutenant colonel, had to recorded the address early to report for duty to Fort McCoy for two weeks.
