For nearly two weeks, Tea Party Republicans – led by Senator Ted Cruz – have kept the federal government shut down and are aiming to wreak havoc on our economy. As a result, we have seen thousands of Iowans furloughed, many thousands more lose access to the services they depend upon, small businesses not receive the help they need to create new jobs, and seniors be denied the chance to sign up for Social Security.
This Tea Party shutdown is having a real impact here in Iowa. Even Governor Branstad himself said he wanted this shutdown to end.
However, later this month, Terry Branstad will be standing alongside the architect of the shutdown – Senator Ted Cruz – at the Iowa GOP's Reagan Dinner.
Governor Branstad, you were elected to represent Iowans, not represent the Tea Party. Don't stand with the person who created this mess.
Please sign your name below to tell Terry Branstad to boycott Ted Cruz on October 25. (Fields marked with a * are required)
