Iowa Defense Alliance: Chet Culver: Ransoming the future to pay for the present

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

I have a quick question for our readers. What do you do when the state
that you govern carries approximately $500 million in debt? I would
hazard a guess that a large majority of us would dramatically cut
spending, but not so for our governor Chet Culver. Last week during a
taping of Iowa Press our lovely Governor Chet Culver made the
following comment: "If we want to modernize our infrastructure-our
sewer treatment facilities, our water treatment facilities-I don't
know how bonding can stay off the table." That's right, with over $500
million in debt Culver wants to send the state even further into the
hole to fund his pet projects. Culver completely disregards the hard
facts that most Iowans face on a daily basis.
