Krusty Konservative: Kapitol Insider – Christopher Rants

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
... when Krusty asked me to write an article for him on a regular basis, I thought, here's a chance to bring a little National Review to the National Enquirer crowd – so here we go…. Since Mike Gronstal and Pat Murphy traveled around the state this past week telling editorial boards what they want people to know about the Democrat majority's agenda, I thought I'd give you a list of ten things they'd rather not tell the press that is going to happen. ... Democrats will break their promise of a 6% allowable growth rate for Iowa's K-12 public schools – but they'll wait to announce it until after the Iowa School Boards Association has finished their annual meeting and left town on January 16th. ... At one of Gov. Culver's press conference, some enterprising reporter will ask, "Who's really setting the Democrat agenda – Mike Gronstal or you?" ... To avoid the scrutiny of the press and public, the Democrats will veer out of the mainstream on Day 110 and will bury their most liberal policy changes in an amendment or conference committee report to the last budget bill of the session and try to debate it after ten o'clock at night. -- The above article was written [by] Representative Christopher Rants.
