patbertroche1The following is from Bertroche’s press release and website.

Dr. Patrick Bertroche will formally announce his campaign for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District today, at 12pm. He has sent his FEC papers by Fed/Ex Tuesday, and the next logical step is to move forward and announce his intention to run for the 3rd District House seat.

He will announce his candidacy at E. 14th & Euclid Ave., near where the old Younkers store used to be, to illustrate the need for better infrastructure and job growth that Iowa needs for a better economy.

Dr. Pat is passionate about Iowa, and will bring a depth of knowledge and vast experience on all issues that affect Iowans, especially Medicare reimbursement and job creation for the 3rd District of Iowa. Dr. Pat plans to work closely with local and state officials to boost small business growth and job creation

Dr. Pat LISTENS to Iowans.

Washington greed is at an all time high. Red state, blue state, WHO CARES? They sound like a Dr. Seuss book. I want to put intelligence back into the national debate. If Congress is bought and sold by special interests, then you need someone who is an outsider and free of special interest commitments to initiate change. I represent the change that can happen, and not the kind of change Pres. Obama and the other “leaders” are wanting. I want more than change in your pocket when you get your paycheck. Let’s start bringing people up, instead of down.

Everywhere I stop in Iowa, people are asking the same questions. Where is our stimulus? Where is our tax money? Where is my job? Why can’t I afford insurance? How come we’re financing GM, Chrysler, AIG, and Wall Street’s limos and jets, and not our farmers? Or our businesses here in Iowa?

I’m sick of good, hardworking people struggling to support those that just want to sponge off the system. And I’m not talking about people who are disabled, or the old folks, or people that need help. I’m talking about the politicians who pad their wallets on our bill, like Rep. Alcee Hastings, who has billed us $2000 per month to LEASE a car! That’s one hell of a car!! Or Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who insists on being flown everywhere in an air force jet. OR the Wall Streeters who are still driving their limos and flying their jets on OUR dime! Or Rep. Leonard Boswell who voted for a tax on our poor people and the farmers, along with an $8 billion train in Las Vegas! Let’s get things right again!!!! Let’s start a “Palace Revolution” and take back our government!

I’m sick and tired of working long hours just to make sure the fat cats maintain their lifestyle. Aren’t you? Pres. Obama promised us change. Changing to Communism isn’t what I had in mind.
