Bleeding Heartland: Don't believe everything Republicans tell you about I-JOBS
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Iowa Republicans have been throwing around misleading talking points about the I-JOBS program since the Iowa legislature approved the infrastructure bonding initiative last spring. I'm still waiting for Republicans to address some basic questions, like where would they have found $45 million for flood recovery efforts in Linn County without I-JOBS? What was their plan for repairing ten flood-damaged structures at the University of Iowa, if they didn't want to issue $100 million in state bonds to leverage $500 million in federal funds to rebuild the campus?
