The State of Iowa: where our newly elected Governor made his first legislative priority raising the tax on cigarettes by about 278%. Studies indicate that people with low income are twice as likely to smoke than others. A few days later, he signed a bill into law capping car title loan interest at 21% and said that companies who had charged low income folks 300% interest were predators, preying on vulnerable Iowans.
I stay in Iowa mostly because of the weather, I love those two nice months every year.
