Dear Chuck Grassley And Joni Ernst:

September 22, 2017

Please vote no on the Graham Cassidy health care bill. It will have a cruel and inhumane impact on the Iowans who will be deprived of health care. It is also incompetently drafted and its outcomes as described by its supporters are outright lies. Its only reason for existing is to tarnish President Obama’s legacy and placate big money donors. Please grow a conscience and do the right thing by voting no on Graham Cassidy.
