  •  Same happened here too. My note is pretty good (7+ / 0-)

    What gives? Robert Siegel did what every, rare, good journalist does he followed up on Senator Grassley's BS talking points. Siegel's interview was NOT harsh, Grassley walked into the box canyon of his own volition. Siegel gave him more than enough opportunities to answer fair questions anyone would have asked. Grassley was not forced to give the answers he did with the exception that the Republican party insists on putting talking points into the mouths of its members that are impossible to defend.

    Make the transcript accurate. Grassley was treated fairly! Unless Siegel is under some obligation to be kind to the STUPID!

      told one of his constituents at a town hall meeting that if he wanted the same health care plan Grassley had he should go to work for the federal government?
      Callous, flippant SOB.

        so far. We have that so called plan. One week now and I hate it. BBCBS federal health plan had to have used the lowest bidder (or the gov did) because I have had several appallingly poor quality people at the other end of the line(LIberty and BC)in trying to get diabetes supplies. Unprofessional, ignorant. I was convinced in two days these people were the lowest paid and had no business in dealing with medical supplies people depend on for their life. I'm including this in my request for help from my senator.
