Grassley Reverses Course: No Death Panels In Bill
Grassley Reverses Course: No Death Panels In Bill


First Posted: 08-23-09 10:45 AM | Updated: 08-23-09 11:35 AM


Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) acknowledged on Sunday that the claims he made two weeks ago -- that Democratic health care legislation would allow the government to "pull the plug on grandma" -- did not reflect the language of the bills.

In an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," the Iowa Republican admitted that the current legislation being considered by Congress didn't include the infamous death panel provision that would allow the government to determine who should live or die.

He lied. He lied repeatedly. There was a reason. A retraction is not gonna matter.

2. Too little too late
He realizes that Iowans are seeing through his nonsense and for the first time, he may be in trouble.
