GOP doubles down on reckless fiscal policy

As I understand it the most pressing problem facing our State Government right now is that Iowa doesn’t have enough money to pay its bills. What is breathtaking, however, is that the Republican solution to our insolvency is to further reduce the amount of money the State has available to spend for essential services.

This reckless fiscal experiment in tax reduction has been implemented in Kansas, Louisiana and elsewhere with disastrous results but I guess as with the Medicaid experiment our Republican friends have more faith in ideology than in facts. It appears to me that the GOP is bound and determined to prove that the Einstein insanity hypothesis is 100% accurate.
