MORE (R-Iowa) at a town hall event in the state on Tuesday, voicing his concerns about losing his coverage of ObamaCare is repealed. During this week's recess, hundreds of Republicans have chose to skip their normal February town halls fearing angry crowds of voters like those who showed up at Jason Chaffetz' town hall in Utah earlier this month. His early morning meeting at a volunteer fire department station in the north central Iowa town of Iowa Falls drew a couple of hundred people.

"We're going down the list and when we're done with that list". Chuck Grassley received a question from an Afghan man who asked him for help to stay in the USA in the face of the Trump administration's immigration executive order.

Grassley declined to answer his question.

That, he said, was unfortunate, but an accommodation he was willing to make.

Numerous questions had to deal with NAFTA, immigration reform, underground pipelines, but Straw is anxious about repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

The Iowa senator, for his part, brushed off a lot of the criticism with a joke, saying "The only time I need Tums is when I have chocolate ice cream before I go to bed". "If you get through it in 2009, this is not a problem".

"If it wasn't for Obamacare, we wouldn't be able to afford insurance", said Chris Peterson, a pig farmer from Clear Lake. Some encouraged Grassley to seek more help from the EPA. "They're called Tums and you're going to need them in the next few years".

Grassley later offered to have his office help Niazy, per KCCI's report.
