Well-funded liberal activist and Democrat candidate for governor Cathy Glasson is staking her campaign on a radical government-run takeover of healthcare, with The Gazette reporting that Glasson is launching a six-figure TV ad buy to promote the plan. It’s further evidence that the Democrat primary is taking a hard left turn.
Now that a candidate has taken to the airwaves to propose a healthcare takeover that could cost Iowa taxpayers over $12 billion, it’s time for other Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates – including Fred Hubbell and Nate Boulton – to take a stand. Do Hubbell and Boulton support a $12 billion tax hike on hardworking Iowa families? If so, which taxes are they willing to raise?
Iowa voters don’t want a government takeover of healthcare and a reckless tax hike on top of it. Hubbell and Boulton owe voters an answer.
