    Happy to be representing my constituents.

    Unlike my opponents, I'm not running for governor because I want the job, I'm running to help those that are suffering, those who are being heard, and those that are being attacked by either party. I will make sure to protect our farmers, our blue collar workers, and our businesses from the partisanship that others seek to impose.

    DACA Act

    Mr. Speaker, The congressman from Wisconsin has failed to realize that these undocumented immigrants have taken jobs in fields that American citizens would not choose to work in. They make up 50% of all field and crop workers, 26.7% of grounds keepers, and 19% of building cleaning and pest control jobs. In the last decade, they have increased Social Security coffers by $100 Billion and Medicare by $35.1 Billion. During the time span of 1990-2013 when the rate they came over tripled, violent crime fell by 48%.They contribute $13.2 Billion to Federal taxes and $7.8 Billion to State. Removing them would shrink the labor force by 6.4%, reduce the GDP by $1.6 Trillion, shrink the economy by 5.7%, and cost the government $400 Billion to do it. The plan from our friend representing the cheeseheads would harm our farmers, our businesses, our state and federal governments, our poor and elderly, and we would have to pay $400 Billion dollars for that privilege. I yield.

    DACA Act

    Mr. Speaker, A good portion of my friends are forgetting to consider what the result of this bill would be on the lives of our citizens! We have gotten too caught up on the labels that the culture wars have forced on us, where people are arguing over what to call these poor children, that they are not focusing on the economic punishment that we would have to accept if we chose to deport them. Not only would we be spending tens of millions of dollars to catch them all but we would also lose a large portion of the workforce, in sectors that Americans would be unwilling to replace them. How many Americans are willing to do the manual labor in the Arizona and California heat for minimum wage? How many businesses would be shut down because they could not afford to pay their workers the amount that legality requires? I call upon my economically minded brothers and sisters to put aside the emotions and support this bill, not to prop up illegal immigrants or support dreamers, but to prevent a disastrous economic outcome from occurring. I yield.

    Presidential Tax Transparency Act

    Mr. Speaker,' I support this bill from my colleagues across the aisle and my friends in the moderate wing of this party. Prior to this President, such a bill was never needed because it was just accepted that all candidates did so anyways. Now that the President has disregarded the unwritten rules that we have all followed for years, such a bill is necessary, but I propose an amendment that all candidates need to also fill out a loyalty pledge, that they will not only follow the putting assets in a blind trust, but also follow the rulings of an ethics committee on issues that would impact members of their family as well. I yield.

    Hamilton Holds Town Hall in Iowa

    I would fight to protect workers by shutting down right to work laws.
  13. Representative Hamilton running for governor is open to questions.

    Hamilton Holds Town Hall in Iowa

    I am pro-union. The right to work bills have been shown to not help the states that change them and union workers need the protection of state laws.

    Hamilton Holds Town Hall in Iowa

    This is the question that I was hoping for. It's time for my first political promise ever. I will never support tariffs unless they are being used as punishment for military aggression. They are bad for farmers. They are bad for business. They are bad for America. Tariffs are so bad, that the first thing you are taught in basic economics is that free trade always brings benefits. These effects on soybean prices just show the President that economists were right and now our farmers are suffering.
