FILE – In this March 23, 2005 file photo Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, talks to constituents during a town hall meeting in Clarinda, Iowa. During a recent town hall meeting farmers, nurses and veterans all took turns pressing Grassley on gun control, immigration, the deficit and the IRS scandal, and listening to the Republican's answers. Some applauded. Others scoffed. But all embraced the chance to put their representative to Washington on the spot, face-to-face during a staple of American civics that's growing increasingly scarce _ the town-hall style meeting.
