Bleeding Heartland: Beware of Grassley's bipartisanship on health care

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

As the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, Senator
Chuck Grassley will influence the shape of health care reform. For
that reason, he and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus of
Montana were invited to lunch at the White House on Wednesday with
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Grassley's
message to the president and vice president, as well as to every
journalist who'll listen, is that health care reform should be done
through a bipartisan bill that can receive 70 or 80 votes in the
Senate. (See also Grassley's recent guest editorial at Politico.) Many
Democrats want to include a health care bill in the budget
reconciliation process, which would prevent a Republican filibuster.
