Iowa Senator Charles Grassley noted his efforts to modernize Medicare, which culminated in the reform bill that the U.S. Congress passed last November, took years to deliver. He didn't mention southern farmers who cringe when they read about another attempt by the senator to attach his payment limit amendment to another "must-pass" piece of legislation. Grassley suffered a reversal in his latest bid to impose stricter payment in limits when the U.S. House of Representatives passed its 2005 budget resolution. Grassley had done good things, including getting the U.S. Senate to pass the Family Opportunity Act.
