Hatch calls out Branstad for 'playing it safe' in election year


SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - While Iowa Governor Terry Branstad calls his 2014 agenda ambitious, his Democratic counterparts say he's playing it safe.

Gubernatorial candidate Jack Hatch, of Des Moines, says ideas such a work program for military veterans are Democratic proposals, and ones Branstad knows he can get bipartisan support for in an election year.

"Tuition freeze, that was a legislative proposal last year which he was reluctant to support. That's why the legislative leaders said we could certainly work with it, but it's what he didn't say," Hatch pointed out.

Hatch says Branstad is ignoring crucial road and bridge work as well as income tax reform.
