AWESOME: ‘Suck It Up, Buttercup!’ Bill Heads to Iowa Legislature [VIDEO]

An Iowa lawmaker has introduced a new bill hilariously titled, “Suck it Up, Buttercup” which would cut funding of public universities who provide ridiculous “safe spaces” where free speech is squelched in favor of protecting the feelings of emotionally immature and weak college students.

The chairman of the Iowa House Oversight Committee, Bobby Kaufmann, a Republican, told FOX News on Wednesday that the bill was inspired by him seeing skyrocketing tuition costs, but yet universities are somehow managing to spend money on things such as “cry rooms,” and rooms set up specifically for students to play with Play-Doh, coloring books and talk about their feelings, etc.

“I was even hearing reports of some schools that were bringing in ponies to be able to get students through the election,” Kaufmann said. “Well for me, that’s a waste of taxpayer dollars. And that also doesn’t prepare kids for life,” he asserted.

“And in life, when your car breaks down, your kids get sick, or you have to take a second job just 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, which is why I came up with the bill and the idea inspired, ‘Suck It Up, Buttercup.'”

Pretty awesome. It’s about time people push back against the insanity going on Marxist-dominated college campuses.
