Iowa Auditor stops in Sioux City to discuss "Healthcare on the Ballot" initiative

Iowa's state Auditor Rob Sand made a stop at Sioux City's Grandview Park as part of his "Healthcare on the Ballot" tour.

Sand advocated for the Affordable Care Act saying if Republicans succeed in tearing down the ACA, then insurance companies could deny coverage entirely or charge higher premiums. Sand says that's why he is endorsing the Biden-Harris campaign.

"But it's for a lot of folks in the middle, the working-class folks, the middle-class folks, for whom the healthcare system and health insurance system really historically has not worked," Sand said. "The Affordable Care Act changed that. It really did expand the number of people with insurance in the country and seeing that go away, I think we're going to see another divide in a worsening perspective and worsening experience for middle-class folks in the country."

Also showing up to support Biden were State Senator Jacqui Smith and retiring State Representative Tim Kacena.

"We have failed leadership with Donald Trump and also with our governor," Sen. Smith said. "You know I gave her a little bit of credit until she went out to see Trump and she came back a different governor and no longer did I feel like my life was important or the people that I represent."

Before coming to Sioux City, Sand made stops for Biden in Carroll and Storm Lake.
