Posted: Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 at 6:22 am

Iowa’s Republican Senator Chuck Grassley was one of 18 senators to vote against the continuing appropriations act last week which ended the government shut down. He states that he did not support the measure because there was no reduction to future spending to decrease the national debt. He adds that he believes the sequester is working, because national spending has been lower in 2013 than in 2012.
