    So he will be 94 when his term is up.
    WTF cant we get rid of these dinosaurs. He has been around for about 29.5 trillion of our 30 trillion dollar deficit.
    He has been a Senator since 1981. Is there not a conservative in Iowa under 80 who can maybe run instead of him.
    I find it funny, Congresses approval rating is in the teens but the same people keep getting re-elected.
    Do better Iowa, can you at least run a guy that can work the remote on his smart TV.

    BTW Chucks net worth is around 4 million. Not bad for a career politician.

    Old entrenched mafia like power in politics is the same as the underworld. These old people would be enjoying retirement but instead are forced to live out their contracts. If you actually believe an 88 year old man loaded with money wants to keep working on the public eye you are as naive as they come. These people are prisoners.

    While I wish the media would grill these dinosaurs on this topic, because there's just no way for an 88 year old man that's been a politician for decades to really be able to understand the needs of the people. It's highly, highly fucking unlikely, because it's not like these people are actually doing a lot of work within their communities.
    Reporters should be asking them why they don't step down, and why they don't make room for new leadership.

    That being said, we have a democracy. It's on the voters. I don't see how we can really complain about people that we voted in.

    4 million is really low for being that long. 200k a year roughly for decades plus all the perks

    If it is legit I guess he didnt engage in much corruption. Like Rubio selling homes for 3x the price or Mcconnell etc

    Yeah man, you have it all figured it out. He just legitimately wants to run again at 88 years of age. Nothing like work at 90.

    They are not prisoners. They are addicted to power. You’d never give Pelosi or Schumer the same out so stop trying to do it for a Con.

    Uh what? Pelosi and Schumer are absolutely in that same boat. It doesn’t matter the party. These people don’t have any power, what are you talking about? They represent money, and banks. They are mostly in ineffectual pawns, none of them control anything. Key word being control.

    I've always liked Chuck Grassley. He still seems to be mentally fit. Can't say that for all old politicians these days.

    They represent power. Money and banks or whomever could replace them with younger, easier to manipulate people. Why place you bet on an 88 yr old Congressman who is at the end of their life when you could easily replace them?

    Committee assignments

    That's a lot of pork money to come into Iowa.

    A new person won't get the seniority for really good committee assignments. Therefore, less taxpayer money headed back to constituents.

    I would rather have power and status at age 88 and die in office then be retired

    Retired men usually feel powerless, weak and angry and depressed if they did enough. Being in power helps avoid that

    Which is why Trump wants to run again or why Biden did

    Say who controls. Did Trump have any power?

    That is a disturbing fact and would make an incredibly effective attack ad.

    Have you ever been to West By God Virginia. Everything in the state is named after Robert Byrd because of all the pork he sent to his state.
    He sent so much any pork added to a bill was called a Byrd Dropping.
    so Byrd is known for being in the Klan and a Pork Master.
