Hawkeye Review: Iowa: The next "zero income tax" state
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
By Gubernatorial Candidate Christian Fong ... Iowa is facing serious challenges. We no longer have a government that reflects the core values that most Iowans share. We are a state where hard work and education no longer pay off the way they should. Now, the state is routinely waking up to headlines of mass layoffs in our cities and towns. The numbers are staggering. One hundred and fourteen thousand unemployed Iowans. Poverty rates that have risen, under Democratic leadership, fourth fastest in the nation this decade. Chronic underpay, with most Iowans making 10-15% less for equivalent jobs than around the region. And the higher the education rate, the bigger the pay gap! This impacts people's ability to turn hard work and education into the Iowa Dream.
