image Ah the Iowa Democratic Party is up to it again.  Instead of debating real issues they send out flyers like what you see below.  This time the target is Ross Paustian, a farmer from Walcott, IA running for the Iowa House in House District 84.

Ross why do you hate our kids so much?  I mean how could you believe in local control of schools and actually believe parents should have a choice in where they send their kids to school regardless of their income level?

I’m curious as to why the Iowa Democratic Party thinks this is a bad thing because I know that some of the legislators within their own party would disagree.  I also wonder where Paustian’s opponent, Sheri Carnahan from Davenport stands.  She has not yet responded to an email I sent last week.

Paustian attack piece 2 

Paustian attack piece 1 I know it’s amazing that some kids can actually receive a quality education somewhere other than in a public school, and that parents shouldn’t have to pay for their kids education twice (through taxes and tuition).  But by all means lets keep pouring money into a broken system.

Oh if anyone did more to increase class sizes look no further than Governor Chet Culver.  I’m sure his 10% across the board cut did absolutely nothing to impact class sizes and public school district budgets.
