The Branstad/Reynolds campaign today unveiled their latest television ad, titled, “Big, Bad Debt.” The ad, running statewide on network and cable television, highlights Gov. Culver’s ever-expanding debt programs in Iowa, while unemployment is the highest it has been in more than two decades.
“While unemployment and property taxes in Iowa have risen, unfortunately so has our debt level,” said Branstad 2010 campaign manager Jeff Boeyink. “Over the weekend, we found out that the governor’s signature I-JOBS program has been put on a credit watch for the state’s failure to pay its bills. Big debt is bad for Iowa. Terry Branstad will take this state in an entirely different direction, offering meaningful economic development and job creation, and a return to pay-as-you-go budgeting.”
