Chuck Grassley Votes Against Iowa Businesses, Working Families

Des Moines - Tonight, Senator Chuck Grassley stood with Ted Cruz and the Tea Party to vote against a bipartisan deal to raise the debt limit and re-open the government.  Had Grassley had his way, not only would thousands of hard working Iowans continue to go without the steady income they rely on, but businesses would have been staring at another recession.
“Chuck Grassley must not understand the real danger facing our country,” said IDP Chair Scott Brennan. “This shutdown not only has hurt working families, but threatened the financial strength and security of our country. Grassley’s vote proves that he stands with the Tea Party and not the hard working men and women of Iowa. If Chuck Grassley will not stand with Iowans, Democrats stand ready to elect a Senator who will.”
