CCI member Jim Walters – Branstad, Republican-controlled Legislature are Iowa’s ruin
Gov. Terry Branstad says if he gets a Republican majority at the Statehouse, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.” Iowans need to work, pray — and vote — to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Branstad travels the world to give away Iowa jobs and manufacturing to foreign and multinational corporations. He’s been willing to sacrifice our soil, water, small towns and family farms for his version of “globalization.” Industrial agriculture — which needs more lawyers and investors than farmers — has covered our state with confinement feeding operations that pollute with impunity, and Branstad has packed the necessary regulatory bodies with his buddies and contributors.
Branstad says a Republican Senate will deal with water quality. Forgive me while I laugh out loud. The first order of business will be to destroy the unions, cut funding for education and further reduce taxes for the wealthy.
Terry Branstad is Donald Trump’s biggest Iowa supporter. They are cut from the same cloth. Believe either one at your peril.
