Sen. Harkin Gets You To Pay $7 Million For Iowa Schools, Then Congratulates Himself

The Harkin Grant Program earmark, humbly named for and by the Senator who procured it, sucks money from the federal treasury and puts it in the hands of Iowa teachers unions schools. Harkin didn't explain the rationale for why Americans in other states should pay for Iowa school improvement when schools in those other states are suffering.
