Iowa Defense Alliance: Gronstal calls for debt option

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

I am sorry to do this. I was really wanting to stay away from politics
until after the floodwaters had completely receded from Iowa. However
the words of Iowa Senate Minority leader Mike Gronstal has changed all
that. In comments that Senator Gronstal made recently in regards to
the recovery efforts from the Flood of 2008, he said that the state
should not rule out as an option, taking out loans to pay for the
recovery efforts. Hasn't those that wield the power in our government
learned that you have to pay your debts eventually. Doesn't he realize
that if the state of Iowa were to go into debt today to pay for our
recovery efforts then it would be our children that would end up
having to pay for it. It is obvious to me that tax and spend Mike has
absolutely no fiscal responsibility, at least when someone else's
money is at stake.
