U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) turned 90 years old this week. His staff threw a birthday party at the office in his honor with a table full of Dairy Queen Blizzards — of three different flavors (Snickers, Peanut Butter Cup, and Oreo) — see photo below.

Back at work, Grassley is now addressing the potential shutdown of the government. He said on his local radio station KMA: “What I have found in the past is that you shut government down to get that and then you get a lot of public pressure to open up government and you don’t accomplish what you want to accomplish.” He added: “So, I would ask the people that are trying to shut down government to leverage something, give up on it–it just doesn’t work.”
