Iowa Independent: Grassley predicts 'scaled down' health bill will pass

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Arguing that the town hall forums of August have "changed the direction" of the health care reform debate, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), said Thursday that he nonetheless expects a bill to pass before Christmas -- though it "may be kind of miniature to what we're talking about." Grassley, on the front lines of the year's thorny health reform debate, has been impressed by the larger-than-usual public gatherings that have stolen headlines throughout the month, referring to them Thursday as "democracy in action." Still, the Gang of Six member was quick to point out that the future of health reform hinges on the collective experience of Congress, not his alone.
