Current Iowa Bailout figures
It is a lot people. A lot.
Who is minding the till?
I don’t know about you but I am uncomfortable knowing that Kim Reynolds is the gatekeeper of this amount of money.
She has proved - time and again - she is willing to flout the law when it comes to use of federal taxpayer dollars - paying unqualified doctors and department directors to dismantle any mitigation efforts the state may have once had against COVID19.
She has passed tests to great big donors leaving homeless shelters in rural Iowa to fend for themselves (more on that later).
She goes on FOX news crowing about all the money Iowa isn’t taking because you know - Iowa doesn’t need a bailout!
Adding: this is just from FY 2021 and doesn’t include direct funding to counties, hospitals, PPPs, etc.
