During 4th Iowa Visit, Delaney Speaks on Need for Civility and Bipartisanship in Sioux City
WASHINGTON – On Saturday October 21 Congressman John K. Delaney made his fourth campaign visit to Iowa, speaking on the need for more civility and decency in politics and calling for a more bipartisan approach to governing at the Harry Hopkins Democratic Dinner in Sioux City.
“Hyper-partisan politics is tearing families apart, tearing communities apart and tearing our country apart,” said Congressman Delaney. “Hyper-partisanship makes us focus on what we disagree on, rather than where we have common ground, and that means we can’t ever solve problems or get anything done. There are bipartisan solutions on health care, on jobs and the economy, even on taxes. We need to stop demonizing each other and start serving the people. My campaign isn’t going to be like a lot of the others, because I don’t believe that half the country is entirely wrong about everything. Democrats have to be the party of good government and the party of decency and civility – this is how we make lasting change that improves people’s lives.”
Delaney is the author of the leading bipartisan infrastructure and tax reform bill in Congress, which lead to him being named one of the 50 World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune.
