The Iowa Republican: Wake up, Chet!
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
"You're hearing the same partisan rhetoric from the Republicans
whether it's their chairman or the Republican leaders. It's doom. It's
gloom. It's despair." ... It's not doom and gloom Governor, it called
reality. GM and Chrysler are closing dealerships in Iowa. Principal
Financial Group is letting go 140 Iowans. John Deere whacked 700 jobs,
most of them in Ottumwa. The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
is making cuts. The list could go on and on. What have Governor Culver
and the Democrats done to help these people? Nothing. Culver borrowed
$830 million; money that he believes will help pull the state out of
this bad economy. All that Culver's bonding plan will do is create
some temporary construction jobs.
