You would think with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and the numerous other hospitals in the Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, that Congressman Dave Loebsack could find a better place to take a nap than the House Education and Labor Committee hearing on health care reform.
Is it too much to ask that he pays attention to a topic (Nationalized Health Care) that could have a huge impact on one of the largest industries and employers in his district?
One has to wonder if the people in the 2nd Congressional District are being represented at all.
Congressman Loebsack has not lead on flood recovery issues. Neighboring congressmen like Bruce Braley have been more engaged than Loebsack has.
The city of Cedar Rapids felt the need to hire a lobbyist last year to make sure the city was represented in D.C. even though Congressman Loebsack lives in the area.
Loebsack also voted “present” on the House Resolution dealing with Iran.
What kind of leadership is that?
Maybe the voters in the 2nd District are the ones who need to wake up.
