Being a farmer is a great qualification to have to serve in the United States Congress.
A populist is someone who fights for common sense economic policies that sustain and expand the middle class.
We all say things that we later regret.
I have represented farmers in federal court during the Iowa farm crisis. A farmer from Butler County. I don't think Sen. Grassley had that life experience. It's just a simple difference of who we are and where we've come from.
The Populist Caucus aims to bring people together around middle class issues, so we can tolerate a little difference of opinion.
