Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says he’ll continue to oppose any healthcare reform legislation that includes any form of a public option. The Republican from New Hartford says it would drive private insurers out of business. Grassley says there are aspects of the current legislation he favors. Such as employer sponsored wellness programs and follow up care after hospital visits. Grassley Spoke on KCII’s In Touch With Southeast Iowa Program
