Congressman Braley Holds Budget Town Hall

Congressman Braley invites all Iowans to create own balanced budget, and reduce the deficit during the week of April 25th. The town halls will be fully interactive and attendants will be able to decide how to balance the budget and reduce the deficit.

“It’s long past due time for a serious, responsible conversation about our fiscal future – and that’s why I want to bring the budget discussion directly to my constituents,” said Rep. Braley. “These town halls will give Iowans an opportunity to see first-hand how the budget process works in Congress. Together, we can find the best ways to balance the budget and reduce our deficit. I look forward to hearing from my constituents and discussing these important issues with them.”

Attendants can RSVP on Rep. Braley’s website at: http://go.usa.gov/TQa
