Your money or your life, Iowans

Gov. Reynolds said recently that between “the lives and the livelihoods of Iowans … [w]e can’t prioritize one over the other.”*

Maybe she can’t, but ordinary Iowans can. Saving lives is more important than making money. Period.

And, usually someone who demands “your money or your life” has the good sense to wear a mask. Not Kim Reynolds.

More than 100,000 Americans dead from COVID-19. And the count continues.

State Sen. Herman Quirmbach
