Agricultural reporters had a hard time separating issues from politics in a telephone news conference with Senator Charles Grassley.
Only events of the World Food Prize seemed to be bi-partisan enough for discussion.
Grassley cited the need for child nutrition. The senator said people with a full stomach don’t appreciate the value of food nor what they would do if they were hungry.
Grassley says there won’t be any action on the Trans Pacific Partnership in a post election session nor will there be any on a supreme court justice. An election and reset in the white house and congress is as far as most can see today.
