Iowa State Government Living In The Stone Age

I have just a word to say here about Iowa. I moved here because my daughter is going to college here, not for any other reason. The people here have this strange idea that they have everything figured out, especially those working in government service. A situation has come up in the Iowa State Senate. The last election created a senate with the same number of Dems as GOP members. Since everybody votes along party lines (instead of actually considering the issues in an intelligent manner), the state senate cannot get anything passed. Pathetic. Of course, there should be some sort of tie breaking mechanism in the law. Maybe the tried and true method of using the Lieutenant Governor as the tie breaking voter? Most states have some sort of tie breaker, but not the geniuses in Iowa.

I'll be back
