Sen. Chuck Grassley's vote is for sale

The Tribune News Service recently reported that Sen. Chuck Grassley received $232,337 from the National Rifle Association last year.

I am disappointed to hear that our senator’s vote is for sale, but I guess I should be encouraged that at least his vote is relatively expensive. I also should note that Sen. Grassley voted against the proposed assault rifle ban a few years ago. I wonder how much money the NRA gave him that year.
