Action Alert From Progress Iowa
We need your help to show Governor Branstad he can’t keep ignoring his constituents.
An independent survey released today showed that Iowans oppose his plans to shut down mental health institutes in Clarinda and Mount Pleasant (by a 68-12 margin) and his efforts to privatize Medicaid (by a 52-22 margin).
Unfortunately, Governor Branstad is better known for acting like a self-appointed emperor than for his responsiveness to constituents.
Will you help us spread the word and show how strongly Iowans feel about these issues?

Shutting down the mental health institutes in Clarinda and Mount Pleasant would be devastating to the patients who need care and their entire communities. And Branstad’s efforts to privatize Medicaid amount to nothing more than a dangerous corporate takeover of health care for more than 500,000 Iowans.
With your help today, we will make sure the Governor, and all Iowans, know how widespread the opposition is to these two dangerous proposals.
Thank you for all you do,
