If you notice in the IA compromise, tax increases were not being insisted upon by the democrats. The democratic RED line was not drawn. The residents got tax cuts that Republicans wanted and also got tax credits for small business that Democrats wanted.

On the federal level, the democrats insist on raising taxes higher and higher and higher, but also aren't even considering deficit reduction with any of those raises. The red line is drawn. That means the feds just wish to spend. How can one party just keep on being irresponsible like that? Of course, RESPONSIBLE representatives get frustrated. Who wouldn't?

We also have to remember that Iowa was the state that took Oprah's advice and started a no-name, no-birth certificate senator from IL on the road to the WH.

So looking toward IA for the pulse of what is good for America is not always a good thing.

America has lost their republic these last 8 years. States' and individuals' rights are constantly being bullied and erased.

AND, just wait until all those fed tax dollars stop coming back to the states for these Medicare/aid expansions.
The state TAXES in IA WILL need to rise substantially because of the cash shortfall that has ALREADY been promised them! O isn't lying on that accord either. I'm just saying, too bad suckers.
