Pandering to the base by coward & shameless GOP elite continues.
Today, so called journos tortured Gibbs during his briefing, who among elected officials spreads misinformation about the health care reform? Who?
Enter Sen. Grassley, a new deather.
Sen. Grassley, only yesterday praised by Pres. Obama as one of the very few Republicans working on the health reform, reveals himself as a Deather.
Here's what Grassley told one of his loony supporters at today's town hall in Iowa:
"I won’t name people in Congress, people in Washington, but there’s some people that think it’s a terrible problem that Grandma’s laying in the hospital bed with tubes in her and think that there ought to be some government policy that enters into that.
"We should not have a government program that determines you're going to pull the plug on Grandma"
Politico reports that
Sen. Grassley also told the questioner who raised the issue that she had "every right to fear" the House legislation which includes a provision that would offer end-of-life counseling services from a medical practitioner. But then he conflated the House language with the debunked notion that the legislation would create a "death panel."
Politico has audio recording of the whole thing:
There you go, Pres. Obama. Here's your champion that you just praised, in all his beauty. Working very hard on that famous bipartisanship. He does not give a damn about your reform. It's time to take the health reform out of the hairy hands of this freak.
And, btw, will the media report this? Will it debunk it? Of course, not. It will isntead continue its sharp focus on the "dissenters" propogating madness.
