Blum should put people before party

Rep. Rod Blum,

It’s past time for you to call out how nonsensical the Trump administration’s tariff policy is.

My family owns and rents a farm in Dubuque County. The bean crop that’s been planted has lost value since it was planted in May. The idiotic tariff policy has added to the pressure that hardworking farmers already were dealing with. You are showing, through your lack of action, how little you really care about working people in the 1st District.

Speak out, show some courage and stop following the wreck that is the “Trump Train.” People before party!
