Rep. Braley’s Single Legislative Accomplishment: Requiring Documents To Be Written In Plain English

DES MOINES – Congressman Bruce Braley continues to inflate his legislative accomplishments, because after 8 years in Washington his only successful bill required the government to write documents in plain English.
“After spending 8 years in Washington, the only bill that Congressman Braley has authored and passed Congress is a requirement that documents be written in plain English,” said Republican Party of Iowa spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “After 8 years of rubberstamping Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama’s agenda, it’s no wonder Congressman Braley is now inflating his record to mislead Iowans.”
