House Republican Leader Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) released the following statement today regarding new numbers released by the Revenue Estimating Conference (REC).
“114,000 Iowans are still looking for a job while Gov. Culver and legislative Democrats are celebrating that government has more money. This estimate indicates that there is more money for government and less for taxpayers.
“This changes nothing. Gov. Culver and Legislative Democrats spent too much, saved too little, raised property taxes and bonded our state into debt.”
