The Democratic President goes to place that is now a Red State to impress on the people there that he IS bringing them ‘the bacon’ from Washington….
Biden’s Infrastructure Bill will infuse the state with $5 Billion for capital projects…..
Biden also has told the EPA to allow more alcohol to mixed with the spring and summer gas ….
That alcohol come’s from Iowa….
And… A Presidential visit to Ioaw IS a Big Deal…..

The president’s trip to Iowa isn’t just about investing in the state’s biofuel industry.
This is part of a broader initiative to invest more in rural America. The White House is calling it the “Rural Playbook.”
During his visit, the president touted the bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed last year. It provides billions of dollars for rural communities to improve roads and bridges, water quality, and high-speed, broadband internet access.
Iowa is slated to get $5 billion from that infrastructure bill. Iowa roads will see the greatest investment with nearly three and a half billion dollars dedicated to fixing them. The plan dedicates $400 million just to fixing the high number of deficient bridges across our state.
More than $600 million will go to updating our public water systems, and $100 million is slated to bring high-speed internet access to rural areas.
Iowa has never been fertile ground for Joe Biden. His 2020 presidential campaign had a fourth-place finish in the caucus and he lost to Donald Trump in the general election.
This is President Biden’s first trip back to Iowa since that loss. Not many Iowans approve of his performance as president. The latest Des Moines Register/Medicom Iowa poll shows nearly 60% of people surveyed disapprove of his actions and only a slim 35% of people approve of how he’s doing….
