Although Harkin is retiring this year, CEO of the Iowa Primary Care Association Ted Boesen, said at yesterday’s meeting that Harkin will always be remembered for the work he has put in to ensure Iowans have access to affordable and quality health care…

Harkin also spoke about Obamacare, which he fully supports. He says that he’s aware of the criticism it’s received, but he is starting to hear less of it now. He did however say that most likely you’ll start hearing more criticism in the months of September and October..


The Senator took a tour of the addition being added to the community health center building. They’re going to grow from having 12 exam rooms to 24.
