Grassley has been among a number of Republican senators sounding increasingly pessimistic about healthcare legislation efforts after Senate GOP leaders delayed a vote until after the July 4 recess.
 
“Compared to how optimistic I was the week before now ... I’m very pessimistic,” Grassley told constituents in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, on Thursday.
 
Several Republicans undecided on the current Senate healthcare plan are slated to appear on the Sunday show circuit this week as lawmakers press ahead on the issue.
