Flotsam and Jetsam: Iowa Roundup

Hundreds of Iowans were removed from the Iowa House chamber Tuesday night after a rowdy crowd consistently applauded and booed speakers.House Speaker Pat Murphy, D-Dubuque, cleared the crowd about 8:30 p.m. His directive came halfway into a two-hour hearing about a plan to end Iowans' ability to subtract what they pay in federal income taxes from their income when figuring their state taxes.The crowd was largely against the proposal.The decision to clear the chamber brought about loud protests from the crowd as people were escorted out by Iowa State Patrol troopers.

My fellow Iowans are mad as hell and they're not going to take it any more. Little disappointed that there wasn't more "hell no we wont go." But this may have been just the warm up for this...
