Essential Estrogen: Loebsack shuns 'hyper partisanship' of Washington
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Congressman Dave Loebsack kicked off his second round of meetings with residents in Iowa's 2nd District by shunning what he termed the "hyper partisanship" of Washington, D.C. "I might just say, generally, [my first year in Congress] was even more than I expected it would be in many ways," Loebsack, a first-year Democrat, told the 40-some citizens gathered at Kirkwood Community College for the Monday morning meeting. "I knew it wouldn't be easy and there have been times when it hasn't been easy." Frustration, he said, in trying pass legislation at the federal level is something he and local residents both feel.
