Normally, bills that cannot pass out of the house and a Senate committee die in the proverbial Iowa “funnel week”. Our House Republicans have hung tough and blocked the bill in the House. Typically, the actual “rules” of the General Assembly would have saved Iowans from this most regressive of taxes.
But the Democrat/Social/Labor Party is wily. Gov. Culver and the legislative DSL leadership are not going to be deterred by rules or fair play in their lust for your money.
So the DSL found a loophole. Next time you see a single mom at the bottom of the economy with a jug of milk, you think about Culver, McCarthy and the DSL idea of what is good for her, much less you.
