DGA Statement Ahead of Gov. Kim Reynolds’ State of the Union Response
Ahead of Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds’ Republican response to President Biden’s State of the Union Address, DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton released the following statement:
“While Kim Reynolds addresses the nation tonight, her harmful record continues to fail Iowans at home. She’s supported massive tax breaks to big corporations while trying to strip away taxpayer dollars from public schools — making it harder for teachers, kids, and parents to get back on track and hitting rural communities especially hard. Gov. Reynolds also opposed critical economic relief from the American Rescue Plan for small businesses and workers — only to hypocritically try to take credit the moment that same money started making life better for Iowa families.
“Gov. Reynolds may repeat a bunch of partisan talking points tonight, but the reality is her disastrous agenda is focused on defunding public schools and leaving families behind.”
