Century of the Common Iowan: Rants Kicks Republican Out of Republican Caucus for Disagreeing With Him
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
I teach 2nd grade and occasionally have to settle arguments that take place on the playground. The incidents usually begin with 2 students disagreeing with each other over little things. Then the students will say they don't want to be friends with each other and one says the other can't play with them anymore. This is basically what happened in the Iowa House last week when Minority Leader Christopher Rants (R-Sioux City) kicked out Walt Tomenga (R-Johnston) from the Republican Caucus debate on raising the cigarette tax. Tomenga favors a $1 per pack increase in the cigarette tax, a move that Rants has been working hard to stop.
