Democrat Jim Webb Undercuts Bruce Braley’s False Attack Against Joni Ernst
DEMOCRAT JIM WEBB: “I’m not a big believer in the government directing outcomes. I’m a big believer in letting the market forces work when you can.”
REPORTER: “Specifically to this next part. See if it sounds more like Joni Ernst’s position on this rather than Bruce Braley. Remember Ernst has said in a perfect world, no energy sector would get subsides. Here’s what Webb says.”
DEMOCRAT JIM WEBB: “In a perfect world, we should be looking at all different opportunities to make us energy independent. I think we’ve done a pretty good job at that over the past several years.”
REPORTER: “I want to make sure, I’m following you correctly. So they should not, does the ethanol industry should they be getting these subsidies or not?”
DEMOCRAT JIM WEBB: “In a perfect world you should not have subsidies.”

Bruce Braley has been in Washington for 8 years and was recently in Texas for a political fundraiser where he belittled Senator Chuck Grassley for being just a farmer, with no law degree. Additionally, during the 112th Congress, Braley skipped 75 percent of the full Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearings.
