King and Latham Show True Priorities in Vote Against Health Care Access for Women
Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Sue Dvorsky released the following statement after Steve King and Tom Latham showed their true priorities and voted to decrease access to health care for Iowa women:
“Steve King and Tom Latham have abandoned their promise to focus on creating jobs by voting to make it more difficult for Iowa women to access basic services, including cancer screenings. With their vote for this bill, King and Latham have once again put their state last and an irresponsible political agenda first.
“Iowans deserve better. They deserve someone who will not play partisan games with the health and well-being of Iowa women.”
The bill, HR 358, passed the House on a vote of 251 to 172. Iowa’s Democratic congressmen all opposed it (Roll Call Vote 789).
