Politicians in Des Moines are at it again. Instead of trying to cut and prioritize spending, politicians are demanding an increase in the gasoline tax when our state has close to a $1 billion surplus.
But Iowans know this is exactly the wrong time and the wrong policy. Iowa families are struggling in this weak economy. Family budgets are stretched thin. Fathers and mothers must make tough budget decisions every day. Iowa families are taxed too much and send too much of their hard-earned dollars to Des Moines and Washington.
