Press Release

Today, Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03) issued the following statement on President Trump’s recent remarks regarding the direct payments included in recent bipartisan COVID-19 relief agreement:

“I agree with the President’s concern that the stimulus checks in the current bipartisan agreement are not adequate in the face of months of hardship facing Iowa families – and would direct him to the members of his own party who just last week blocked larger checks.

I supported including larger stimulus checks, and stand ready to work with the President and my colleagues in Congress to increase those amounts.

We cannot, however, lose sight of the fact that millions of Americans will lose their unemployment benefits and the government will shut down if an agreement is not signed soon.”
