State Rep. Bobby Kaufmann, a Republican out of Iowa, has introduced a bill titled “Suck It Up, Buttercup” in response to the massive protests at colleges and high schools across the country following the election of Donald Trump to President of the United States.
The bill targets state universities using taxpayer dollars for grief counseling and other whacky lefty ideas like “cry rooms” that are supposed to “help students cope with election-related sadness.”
The bill will also increase criminal penalties when these protestors decide to infringe on other people’s rights by blocking highways.
Kaufmann spoke with Fox & Friends this morning.
Kaufmann noted he even heard reports that these taxpayer funded schools were bringing in ponies to help students get through their “trauma.” Are you kidding me? There is no way we should ever be funding this insanity.
Kaufmann also spoke about the folks who were never taught not to play in traffic as well, “That’s incredibly dangerous. What if someone had been trying to go to the hospital or was in an emergency and you had these spoiled brats blocking interstate 80?”
In fact, that’s exactly what happened according to one first responder who reported that a young father died due to protestors blocking the highway.
Kaufmann sums it up best:
That’s a waste of taxpayer dollars and that also doesn’t prepare kids for life. In life there’s winners and losers and when your car breaks down, your kids get sick or you have to take a second job to pay your mortgage, you don’t get to go to a cry zone, you don’t get to pet a pony. You have to deal with it.
He’s right, you have to deal with it. It’s time to end the government coddling of these immature brats. It’s time they grew up and faced the reality of life.
