    I respect your opinion. I vehemently disagree with your conclusion regarding the value of Ernst. She has not shown any interest whatsoever in the impoverished or uneducated in this country. She is out of touch with reality. I assume she considers her $600k subsidy to payment to be a gift she deserves.
    On the other hand, I have no doubt she is nice to her neighbors. Few cold-hearted and incompetent legislators can withstand the inherent pressure in direct meetings. The rest of the country is suffering due to her lack of skills and compassion.
    Defend all you like. You cannot change reality.

    I agree with you about the poverty in rural Iowa, I grew up in Clarke County, attended a one room school, lived in farm houses without much heat and worked to get warm on cold winter mornings, but Sen. Ernest is the person making a joke of our experiences. Poverty in rural Iowa still exists! Outhouses are gone, but housing is in poor repair, good jobs are in a nearby city and Main Street business is a memory. Many in rural Iowa towns depend on food stamps, disability checks and heating assistance to survive. What is Sen. Ernest doing for her people! A tax cut won’t help if you are paying any tax, repeal of the ACA won’t help more get the health insurance they need. Your right poverty isn’t funny, but why do elected officials ignore it in the 2nd richest farming states in the USA.
