58% of Iowans oppose Congress' actions on health care, new Iowa Poll shows. (Des Moines Register, 7/15/2017)
The new poll comes as Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate are struggling to push through their version of a health reform bill. No Democrats plan to vote for the bill, which would curtail significant parts of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The bill needs support from at least 50 of the Senate’s 52 Republican members. Iowa’s senators, Republicans Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, have not yet said how they will vote.
