For some time now myself and others have been railing on the idea that the GOP has been simply fighting against the President?s plan for moving the country forward and fixing our economy without providing some sort of alternative to the President?s budget.
Today the GOP put out a Budget Alternative, or at least a blue-print for one. Maybe it?s a rough draft?
The I-Jobs program that was recently signed into law by Governor Chet Culver is all ready starting to hand out money.
According to WHO-TV the first seven applications have been approved. All of them appear to be in the Cedar Rapids area, which was hit very hard by the 2008 flooding.
The projects would receive $45 million in I-JOBS funding. Some of the money will be pumped into Cedar Rapids’ public library, Paramount Theater, Public Works Building as well as the National Czech and Slovak Museum.
