Statement on Representative Paul Ryan Attending Terry Branstad’s Birthday Party

DES MOINES – Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Scott Brennan released the following statement on Representative Paul Ryan’s plan to attend Governor Branstad’s annual fundraising birthday party:

“Paul Ryan laid the groundwork for the Reckless Republican Shutdown with his irresponsible and draconian budgets, and now he is coming to headline Terry Branstad’s birthday party.  This is just another example that Terry Branstad is more in line with the Tea Party than the people of Iowa.  House Republicans helped create this mess, and by bringing Paul Ryan here, he is demonstrating his support for the GOP’s irresponsible mess the past couple of weeks.  Terry Branstad should be running away from these people, not running towards them, and it is time to elect a new governor who will look out for all Iowans.”
