Iowa Guy 2.0: Iowa, this is your Senator

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Guy 2.0

Senator Chuck Grassley (R - Deaf and Dumb) is the ranking Republican
on the Senate Finance Committee. As such, he has a great deal of
influence while the Senate considers health care reform. The number of
uninsured Americans is currently close to 50 million. In Iowa, some
nine per cent of the adult population is uninsured. Those who are
lucky enough to have health insurance face soaring premiums, denial of
services and uncaring providers who are more concerned with making a
profit and paying exorbitant salaries to their executives than
actually providing health care. The system has gotten so bad that 72
per cent of Americans supported public health care in a recent poll by
CBS News.
