Bleeding Heartland: Grassley's ties to health and insurance PACs are no joke

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Jon Stewart had a go at Senator Chuck Grassley on Tuesday's edition of
The Daily Show. The "debt and deficit dragon" segment is worth
watching if you missed it. I can't embed the video here, but you can
watch it at or at Radio Iowa. While I enjoy laughing
at Grassley as much as the next person, Paul Blumenthal's reporting on
Grassley for the Sunlight Foundation blog this week is more important
than mocking Grassley's bizarre visual aids and mixed metaphors.
During the second quarter of 2009 alone, Grassley "pulled in $165,100
from health and insurance PACs." Blumenthal posts the details here. It
appears that a large chunk of that money came from two fundraisers
that interest groups opposing health care reform held for Grassley in
late June.
