First Bruce Braley Insults Farmers, Now He Degrades Women
Braley Continues to Attack Anyone Who Isn’t a Liberal Trial Lawyer
June 5, 2014 – Congressman Bruce Braley this week continued his long-standing practice of attacking anyone who isn’t a liberal trial lawyer like himself. First Braley insulted Iowa farmers and Senator Chuck Grassley. Now, Braley is degrading women by comparing Joni Ernst to a “chick” in his latest campaign ad.
“First Bruce Braley insults Senator Grassley and every single Iowa farmer,” said Ernst spokesperson, Gretchen Hamel. “Now he degrades and insults Iowa women by comparing Joni Ernst to a ‘chick.’ Braley previously told the trial lawyers that if they gave him money he would be their voice in the senate, and it’s now clear that it comes at the expense of everyone else.”
Here are the real facts about Joni’s record of working to cut wasteful spending and why Bruce Braley is once again proven wrong:
In 2011, Ernst co-sponsored a bill to impose a hiring freeze in Iowa government (SF 223).
In 2011, Ernst co-sponsored a resolution to limit the amount of spending by the state government (SJR 12).
In 2013, Ernst co-sponsored a call for a constitutional amendment to limit government spending and limit the ability to raise taxes (SJR 8).
