Bobby Kaufmann's votes favor corporate greed

Clean energy, education, collective bargaining and workers’ safety, local control: Rep. Bobby Kaufmann’s votes aren’t consistent with what he tells us.

For example, he voted for HF291 despite a promise to not vote for a Wisconsin-style bill. He voted for SF166, depriving our schools with an unacceptable 1 percent funding increase.

His vote on SF2311 a green energy bill, takes a regressive direction that undermines Iowans’ choices of nonfossil-fuel use and innovation in this state.

These basics that promote opportunity, quality of life and citizens’ independence, are being eroded in favor of what is corporate greed, a good life for some, but not all.
