How Iowa's Representatives Voted
WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- After more than two weeks of gridlock and a partial government shutdown, the federal government was fully reopened Thursday morning.
It took a compromise deal to fund the government only for three months before a shutdown could happen again without a new agreement.
Many Republicans still refused to back the plan. Some still wanted changes or a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Other say the plan did nothing to resolve the nation's spending problem.
In the Senate, Iowa Democrat Tom Harkin voted in favor of the short-term plan. Citing the nation's debt, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley voted against it.
In the House, Democrat Representatives Dave Loebsack and Bruce Braley both voted in favor of the measure. Joining them was Republican Congressman Tom Latham. Rep. Steve King voted against it.
