(FORT DODGE, IA) – Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron) today took the stage at Iowa’s 4th Congressional District Convention and spoke about repealing Obamacare, reducing our nation’s massive debt and creating an environment that is conducive for job growth in Iowa’s 4th district.

Congressman King issued the following statement after his speech:

“As the nation’s number one opponent of Obamacare, I have fought tirelessly to repeal this law. It must be pulled out by its roots. This unconstitutional law that was forced upon us by Nancy Pelosi and President Obama is a job-killing, government overreach. I am committed to removing it completely from the books and I will continue fighting for Iowans’ freedoms that are being infringed upon.

“President Obama’s appetite for spending knows no bounds.  To provide small businesses the opportunity to grow, we must reduce our debt and get our fiscal house in order.

“As a self-made small businessman, I balanced my construction company’s budget and met payroll for over 1,400 consecutive weeks. The Democrat-controlled United States Senate has not passed a budget in over 1,000 days. Iowa families balance their checkbooks regularly. It’s common sense. With a balanced budget, we can begin to pay down our country’s massive debt that now exceeds $15 trillion.

“We must get government out of the way of our job creators.  Job creation is not a partisan issue. Up and down main streets in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, small business owners are being suffocated by government regulations. These small business owners create 67% of all jobs in our country. I supported the JOBS Act and the Small Business Tax Cut Act to make it easier for small business to grow.

“I look forward to returning to Washington to pass meaningful legislation that will lead our country to economic prosperity.”
