The Real Sporer: Gov. Lug and the slow downward spiral

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

A couple of days ago we posted a story on Iowa's decline to a bottom
feeding 45th rank (out of 50) for business climate. Business climate
is a somewhat amorphous concept that considers a broad array of
factors that affect an area's desirability for business creation or
expansion. Now, after nine years of Democrat governance, which has
mostly consisted of ever higher taxes coupled with corporate welfare,
carefully targeted at very large businesses who don't need the money
but whose executives have been most generous contributors to Democrat
political efforts, to fund ever larger increases in state and local
government, Gov. Lug has discovered that businesses have fled Iowa. As
a result of business flight, Iowa is facing a major labor force
shortage for the jobs, which are mostly government or government
related, that have remained in Iowa.
