Letter: Blum should hear Grassley on AHCA

Through guest columns in The Gazette and current TV spots, Rep. Rod Blum is trying to get the people of Eastern Iowa to believe he had our best interest in mind when he voted in favor of the House health care bill.

Isn’t it interesting then to see Sen. Chuck Grassley indicate that the House proposal would do nothing for 70,000 Iowans. It would seem even Sen. Grassley, who has been as partisan in his stance the past couple of years as ever before, does not believe Rep. Blum did right by the people of Iowa in voting to support the Trump/Ryan health care plan.
