“What’s the Matter with Iowa?” Asks University of Iowa Professor Colin Gordon

2004’s “What’s the matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America” spent 18 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List due to its telling of the rise of populist, anti-elitist conservatism in Kansas & the United States. Now, University of Iowa history Professor Colin Gordon is asking “What’s the matter with Iowa?” Professor Gordon recently penned an article by that title for Dissent Magazine, & spoke with Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland to discuss the “blueprint” he says was used in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin & Sam Brownback’s Kansas, noting that it’s now being unrolled in Iowa as well as South Carolina, Kentucky, & New Hampshire.

  1. He is so right when he says, the Iowa House thinks we have run out of money, but actually it is due to the fact that they have cut so many taxes for the wealthy corporations that do their business outside of the state. AND IOWANS HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS, sad.
