This needs to stop—for the wellbeing of these children and the security of our nation.

Joni Ernst said ( about Nancy Pelosi ) : “D.C. Democrats are working to unseat a duly-elected and certified winner of Iowa’s second congressional district election: Congresswoman Miller-Meeks. Let’s get the facts straight: Iowans elected Congresswoman Miller-Meeks; the votes were recounted and every county in the district canvassed; and the results were certified by a bipartisan board of Iowans. Rita Hart chose not to follow Iowa law and rather appealed to Speaker Nancy Pelosi to overturn Iowans’ votes and voices. This is a total power grab by Washington Democrats and a slap in the face to Iowans and the nonpartisan elections process that is best kept at the state level,” External link

Joni Ernst ( about Susan Collins ) : "For heaven sakes, there was 91 percent of that bill that did not go to supporting Covid-related recovery, so 91 percent of the bill shouldn’t have passed. We really need targeted relief. That's not what we saw in this $1.9-trillion package. Iowans are in particular upset about the fact that they will be bailing out blue states that don’t manage their budgets, that have excessive pensions, and my taxpayers who manage their finances quite well will be the ones bailing out these poor blue states ... There are a number of programs that will target certain populations, and yet our poor Iowa farmers won’t be able to apply if they are in a certain demographic, and so that is very unfortunate that we have singled out certain farmers and certain areas and not supported all farmers ... They hate this. It is very, very unfortunate that we have gotten to a point right now where we are not only forgiving the loans of certain demographics but paying them an additional 20 percent on top of that. Susan Collins and I had a lengthy discussion about her poor potato farmers in the state of Maine ... This was a really sneaky trick to put this in the bill. A lot of Iowans won’t see the benefit of most of these programs. Again, this is a Covid bill, not a farm bill. This was not a manufacturing bill. This is supposed to be a Covid-related bill. One percent of this bill goes to vaccinations. We need to be opening our economy. We need to be getting moms back to work, open our schools, and this bill does not do that" External link

Incredibly, the money in this massive, 628-page bill has little or nothing to do with getting kids back in school right now. That is simply wrong.

Iowans are in particular upset about the fact that they will be bailing out blue states that don’t manage their budgets, that have excessive pensions, and my taxpayers who manage their finances quite well will be the ones bailing out these poor blue states ... There are a number of programs that will target certain populations, and yet our poor Iowa farmers won’t be able to apply if they are in a certain demographic, and so that is very unfortunate that we have singled out certain farmers and certain areas and not supported all farmers ... They hate this. It is very, very unfortunate that we have gotten to a point right now where we are not only forgiving the loans of certain demographics but paying them an additional 20 percent on top of that. Susan Collins and I had a lengthy discussion about her poor potato farmers in the state of Maine ... This was a really sneaky trick to put this in the bill.
