Grassley called "cold, calculating" by Arizona shooting survivors
Edited on Thu Nov-17-11 12:44 PM by rurallib
Eleven survivors and family members of victims of the January 2011 shooting in Arizona that nearly killed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) are criticizing Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) for what they say was a dismissive and political response to Tucson shooting survivor Patricia Maischs testimony in support of legislation which would close holes in the gun background check system.

In a letter sent to Grassley on Wednesday and obtained by TPM, write of their profound disappointment with Grassleys obvious disregard for the gun violence survivors in the room as well as his apparent ignorance of the deadly serious issue we came to discuss with you.

ETA - Give him a $100,000 "campaign contribution" and he will act like he cares.

1. Yup. When communicating with natives in his country,
one must learn to speak the language.

Money talks and bulls--t walks when it comes to Mr. Grassley and his ilk.
