Krusty Konservative: Who has Kontrol of the Iowa House? Culver or Gronstal?
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
One thing that will always get me riled up is a tax increase, ANY tax increase, including the proposed cigarette tax increase the legislature is considering. We are told the rational behind the tax increase that it will save lives. That's just a bunch of BS. The reason Democrats are pushing for the cigarette tax increase is because they need the funding to balance the books, and expand government. It has nothing to do with saving lives. I find it interesting that with each new day Speaker of the House Patrick Murphy has a different opinion on the cigarette tax increase. I know that Former Speaker Rants got beat up because he opposed the increase but at least the dude was konsistent.
