Battleground Iowa: Gronstal: Pay no attention to that man preparing to steal more power
Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa
There has been a lot of talk about the best way to finance
flood/tornado recovery in Iowa and about what role the state should
play in that recovery. The argument in the blogosphere has turned into
a debate about how much money the state will be expected to provide,
which no one knows yet. That's just the point. No one knows yet.
Unfortunately, some have tried to steer the argument in this direction
and away from the true focus of my posts last week. The real issue we
need to look at right now is this: Why make a major change in Iowa law
by allowing the state to openly go into debt when we don't even know
yet how much money the state will need? Why is Gronstal even
suggesting such a drastic measure so early in the recovery process?
