On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts: Grassley complains about Obama web site

Excerpted from this post at On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley is complaining the Obama administration may
be breaking the law with a web site that has a button asking visitors
to "state your support" for passing heath insurance reform this year.
The button leads to a form letter expressing support for a series of
reform principles and lets them leave their names and contact
information. Grassley sent a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen
Sebelius, saying, "the use of the official HHS.gov Web site for
activities that seem to be nothing more than government propaganda
raises many serious questions," according to a story posted last night
on Roll Call's web site. An HHS spokesman, Nick Papas responed:
"Healthreform.gov is a valuable resource for the American people and
we look forward to discussing this resource with the Senator," Roll
Call says.
