Cyclone Conservatives: Democrats Succeed in Sending Iowa Into Debt

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

Radio Iowa's O. Kay Henderson has a fascinating piece this morning
that highlights exactly what any common sense Iowan could have said at
the end of the 2007 Iowa legislative session: the Democrats are
sending the state swirling down the drain of debt. According to
Henderson's story: "Governor Chet Culver is delivering a budget
warning to his administrators. The move comes as Culver and his staff
acknowledge that the level of state spending promised by the
Democratic-led legislature doesn't match the amount of state tax
revenue that'll be collected..." I'm pleased to see that Rep. Rants is
already on the case as that is exactly what we are going to need in
order to ensure that this sort of behavior is sufficiently made known
to literally every Iowan. This is just a fantastic issue for
Republicans here in Iowa to campaign on. Rants is noted in the article
as suggesting that he believes the liberals will move to raise more
revenue through tax hikes instead of trim the budget.
