Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley sat down on Channel 13's "The Insiders with Dave Price" this week to talk about the politics in Washington.

The recent changes made to the filibuster rules in the Senate are poor ones and should immediately be changed back lest the American people suffer the consequences from legislation that will be passed as a result, Grassley said.  The senator added that he thinks many Democrats are hypocrites for passing this now, where in the past they have defended the old filibuster rules.

The main reason Democrats cited for the changes to the filibuster rules was that Republicans were using filibusters to block presidential nominees for positions that need to be filled.  Grassley said that he did not believe this was the real reason because often Republicans agree with the candidates that are presented to the senate for approval.
