I'm not mistaken, and I do live in Iowa. It has been the continual policy of Governor Branstad to give money to the largest corporate donators, not the largest group of Iowa citizens. Take a look at where road money has been spent during his current and previous terms. Then get back to me.

Rural roads will be abandoned...Rural land, especially family farms, will lose value...Family farms and rural housing will sell for much less due to poor access...Corporate entities buy the land and make a large farm or put up a factory..."This is good for Iowa. So, as the head of the Iowa Department of Transportation, I'll make sure these abandoned roads get as much money as possible to put them back up into working order." ---- Lets see the roads in question on a map, who owns the land next to them, and who made offers to buy the adjacent land before this announcement was made.
