Battleground Iowa: Gronstal using flood tragedy to gain access to more $$$

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa

Before the waters have even receded, Supreme Iowa Democrat Mike
Gronstal is already tipping his hand. Chet has indicated there will
likely be a special session of the legislature to deal with
flood-related issues. Gronstal has already said he's ready for the
state to go into debt to pay for flood damages. While I understand
that the flood damages will be enormous, I still think it is premature
and irresponsible of Gronstal to be making comments such as this. Why
not wait and see exactly how much damage there is? Why not wait and
see how many people had flood insurance that will pay for their
expenses? Why not wait and see what the federal government will do?
Are we assuming that the government will bail out all those who live
in a flood plain and didn't have the foresight to buy their own
insurance?
