One group is putting the heat on lawmakers as the so-called fiscal cliff deadline looms.

On Thursday, a group called Progress Iowa and other local activists delivered letters to Senator Chuck Grassley’s office in Waterloo.

The letters came from more than 800 Iowans who support what they call, tax fairness.

They’re urging Grassley to end the Bush-era tax cuts.

“Iowans all over the state stood up today to demand Senator Grassley take immediate action for fairness and fiscal responsibility, and end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest two-percent,” said Matt Sinovic, Executive Director of Progress Iowa.

“As Grassley and House Republicans have stubbornly brought us closer to the fiscal cliff, we have called,emailed, written letters, and visited Grassley’s offices to deliver our message. Middle and workingclass Iowans won’t stand by while Congress raises their taxes and threatens their futures.”

Activists also delivered letters to Grassley’s offices in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City.
