Cyclone Conservatives: Cheap Shot at Veterans

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

By Royd Chambers, Iowa House of Representatives... This week I voted
against a bill that would create two new pull tab Lotto games to
generate dollars for the Veteran's Trust Fund. This fund is used for
veteran services. What a cheap shot at Veterans when Democrats can't
find 3 to 5 million dollars out of a 6.4 billion dollar budget to
improve veteran services at the state and county levels. Once again
this proves that if you aren't a powerful union the majority party
just isn't going to pay attention to you. This bill is a smokescreen
to make Iowans believe something is being done for Veterans when, in
fact, they are passing the buck. However, I must admit that this
proposal is a step up from the Democrat proposal a year or two ago for
a new tax on pornography sales to fund veterans needs.
