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.
