Forced-labor dues 'absolutely wrong' for Iowa

It is absolutely wrong of the state to take the SILO funds (school infrastructure local-option sales tax) and replace them with an additional state sales tax. Those SILO taxes were approved to allow the counties to fund projects as they see fit, not for the state to take the funds and redistribute them.

If you want to help out the poorer districts, try getting rid of some pork in other areas. Quit wasting time and money on expanding the nanny state (smoking ban, etc.) Get rid of the absolutely wrong proposal to force anyone to pay union dues.

Help the economy grow with freedom and deregulation instead of suppressing it with more taxes and regulations.
