Check out Republican Senator Chuck Grassley on MSNBC earlier today. Specifically go to he 7:10 mark and pay close attention to what he says.
That's right ladies and gentlemen, Grassly, who has a seat at the table thanks ot Captain Incompetent, Max Baucus, is now saying that even if he gets what he is looking for in a health care reform bill, he will STILL vote against the bill unless more than a handful of Republicans vote for it. Mind you we already know that the Republicans have long said that not only will they not vote for health care form, but also that they wouldn't even particicpate in the process of formulating a bill at all.
So there you have it from the horses' mouth. The top Republican negotiator for health care reform in the Senate Finance committee is telling everyone that no matter how much he is appeased he will not vote for the bill.
If there was ever a time to ram something down the Republicans' throats its now. To hell with the lot of them. Make the health care reform bill as liberal as possible and then get it signed sealed and delivered to the American people. Any thing else is going to be counterproductive.
