Statehouse Snippets: Debate Shots
Excerpted from this post at Statehouse Snippets
... Nussle seemed confused at one point whether Iowa is overtaxed or under-taxed. He settled on overtaxed, I think. Then Culver pulled a $100 million tax relief package seemingly out of thin air. You'd think he might have mentioned that before. ... I'm feeling real uneasy about the future of health care in Iowa. Nussle said he would cap malpractice awards to help save rural Iowans caught "in augers." Culver would "expand 58,000 kids," perhaps by replacing physical education with competitive eating 101. ... Culver had a golden opportunity to hit a fat homerun when Nussle started talking about fiscal discipline. Instead the Democrat stumbled while trying to "correct the record straight."
