Are You Ready for the “Suck it up, Buttercup” Bill?

This should be proposed at the national level, as well

(Daily Caller)  A state legislator In Iowa has announced his plan to introduce a bill intended to prevent public colleges and universities in the state from using taxpayer money to fund protest events, safe spaces and “cry zones” for students who are traumatized that Donald Trump won last week’s U.S. presidential election.

The lawmaker is Bobby Kaufmann, a Republican from the tiny town of Wilton, about 30 miles east of Iowa City.

Kaufmann has titled his bill the “suck it up, buttercup bill” and will introduce it when the state legislature convenes its regular session in January, reports The Des Moines Register.

One would think that it would be too late, come January, however, you know that the Safe Space crowd is still going to be going strong, and will surely last for as long as Trump is president.

“If you want to do this on your own, that’s your democratic, First Amendment right,” the Iowa lawmaker declared. “But I’m going to find out exactly how many taxpayer dollars are being used for these cry zones and for all these different safe zones — you can talk about your feelings — and I’m going to take whatever that number is, and we’re going to triple it and cut that from the university budget. If you can afford that, then your budget is too big.”

“I have decided to officially call this the suck-it-up-buttercup bill,” Kaufmann added.

He should probably include a provision to make sure no live animals are involved, because, really, how safe can a puppy or kitten be around unhinged Special Snowflakes?

    “I have decided to officially call this the suck-it-up-buttercup bill,” Kaufmann added.

    Unofficially, of course, the title of the bill does not include the word “up”. Kaufmann is being gracious, so, suck it, snowflakes.
