Axne Takes Lead Requesting Cots, Showers, Food For National Guard At Capitol

UNITED STATES – January 13: Members of the National Guard rest in the Capitol Visitors Center as the House of Representatives votes on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, nearly a week after a pro-Trump insurrectionist mob breached the security of the Capitol while Congress voted to certify the 2020 Election Results, in Washington on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021.

We’ve all seen the images of National Guard members sleeping on the floor of the capitol building in Washington, DC, called up to defend our country after Trump’s mob ransacked the place and killed people.  Iowa Democrat Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03) teamed up with Colorado Democrat Rep. Jason Crowe to do obtain cots, food and showers. While reports clarify they are not lodged there, there are some basic needs not being met.

We are proud that Iowa’s only Democrat in congress stepped up to support our men and women in uniform and wondering what her Republican counterparts are busy doing right now to help.

From Rep. Axne’s FB page:

My colleagues and I are grateful to the National Guard members and other law enforcement who are protecting our Capitol and defending our democracy – including over 250 members of the Iowa National Guard.
.
Today, Rep. Jason Crow and I led a letter seeking to provide them with the meals, beds, and other accommodations to ease their service. #IA03.
