COUNCIL BLUFFS — Gov. Terry Branstad's concern about the federal government's ability to fund a Medicaid expansion, a reason for his decision to reject such funding, is a legitimate concern, according to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.
He also noted the sequester that took effect Friday requiring $85 billion in spending reduction as an indicator that federal cuts are always a possibility.
