Maybe Grassley should pursue other options

Given his recent promotion of the current president’s hollow accomplishments, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley needs to make a career change.

Grassley’s late mentor, budget hawk H.R. Gross, must be gyrating in his grave at the Republican tax plan, which will produce $1 trillion annual federal budget deficits and was supported by Grassley.

Grassley also supports “Tariff Man’s” trade war, which already has cost Iowa farmers access to world markets while opening those markets to farmers in Brazil.

Grassley is not acting like a member of a coequal branch of the federal government, ready to provide a check on the power of an increasingly unhinged, incompetent and authoritarian chief executive. If Grassley’s loyalty to the GOP and its crime boss is more important than his duty to the country and Iowans, he needs to immediately resign his seat in the U.S. Senate.

I hear the chief executive is looking for a new chief of staff. Perhaps that is the job for Chuck.
