Ann Black from our Iowa office sent the following note this morning as well:
For the past five weeks, Iowa AARP and Divided We Fail have been on a 16-stop 'Break the Gridlock Tour' around the state talking with capacity crowds in packed rooms about the rising costs of health care and long term financial security. "I have never seen Iowans more engaged in an election," said AARP Iowa State Director Bruce Koeppl. "Iowans are as concerned today about these issues as they were when this process began two years ago. They are tired of the gridlock in Washington and they expect the next President and Congress to work together and demand action on these issues."
