But here is the problem — this tax bill wasn’t supported solely by Republicans. Democrat State Senators Tony Bisignano and Kevin Kinney voted for it. Democrat House Representatives Steven Hansen and Kenan Judge voted for it.

So, when these Democrat legislators attack the bill, it is fair to presume they’re attacking those who voted for it — including members of their own party.

They can attack the GOP all they want, but they’re ignoring the fact some of their own broke ranks to vote in support of providing tax relief to every single Iowan.

That is something the mainstream media shouldn’t let them get by with. Let’s keep a close eye to make sure Iowans know this tax reform bill was passed with support from Republicans AND Democrats.

  1. Iowa’s per capita share of the $30 trillion deficit is $273 billion. Iowa GDP is 18 to 19,000,000,000. Whenever the government goes into debt the only way they diminish their deficit is through inflation. Now, which way do you want to go with this?
