Lawmaker’s ‘Suck It Up, Buttercup’ Bill Will Punish Campuses Hosting Whiny Election Protests

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.
He sees the need for the new law, he says, because he believes taxpayer-funded college campuses should not sponsor events for students unhappy over Trump’s election — particularly when no such events occurred to coddle anyone who wanted Mitt Romney to win in 2012 or John McCain to win in 2008.
