Cyclone Conservatives: Democrats Begin Election Year Love Fest With Unions

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

This is a sad day for the future of Iowa's economic well being. Early
this morning, when most of Iowa was asleep, Democrats, along party
lines, succeeded in starting their love affair with big labor in this
state. I am guessing this is the first of several ways that Democrats
are working to thank organized labor for their help in taking the Iowa
legislature in 2006. This legislation, should it get through the
Senate (and sadly, I'm sure it will), will really strip school boards
of a lot of their authority over personnel and as the story in the
Register points out, will also probably result in massive tax
increases. I ran for School Board in 2004 partly because I was very
concerned over the power that the Iowa State Education Association was
getting in our local districts.
