True Blue Iowan: Grassley is the new Lucy holding the football
Excerpted from this post at True Blue Iowan
Sen. Max Baucus worked hard to find a "bipartisan compromise" with Grassley and two other Republicans. In the end he gave them everything and got nothing in return. I'll join the chorus of others who say, "Fine, if Republicans won't play ball let's go back and make this a Democrat sponsored bill with full public option, cost controls and tax the rich to pay for it." This insightful blog sums up our Chuck Grassley: "what this really means is that in order to meet Grassley's definition of bipartisanship, Dems must effectively hand over to Republicans total veto power over health care reform. It's that simple."
