    It’s going to be a very very long time until another senator from Iowa has Grassley’s clout!

    Poetic justice. Serves him right for enabling Trump to destroy so many Iowa jobs. He chose the imposter Trump over his own constituency, participated in downplaying the virus risk, and now karma is coming back to bite him.

      Crazy sheep. Iowa has more job openings than it does willing and able people. What we lack is ambition, and gave an abundance of excuses.

      Haha. Now the governor is responsible for everyone in her states actions? It’s the people, not the politicians, who are spreading it. If it were anyone besides the people to blame, it would be the devil worshiping Democrats.

        Did you see in minnesota their were several Republican representatives who had it and they had a big meeting with the democrats. guess who ‘forgot’ to tell the others of their infections? Here’s a hint cuz I know you are very smart. It wasn’t the democrats.

          You’re leaving out some pretty important information. Are you unaware of this additional information or are you purposely omitting this information to make your political adversaries look bad???
