Iowa farmer warns Grassley about creating 'one great big death panel' with ObamaCare repeal

Source: The Hill

A farmer in Iowa faced off with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) at a town hall event in the state on Tuesday, voicing his concerns about losing his healthcare coverage if ObamaCare is repealed.

“I’m on ObamaCare,” the man, identified as Chris Peterson, 62, told Grassley. “If it wasn’t for ObamaCare, we wouldn’t be able to afford insurance.”

“Over 20 million will lose coverage and with all due respect, sir, you’re the man that talked about the death panels. We're going to create one great big death panel in this country that people can’t afford to get insurance.”

The comment referred to a debunked claim Grassley supported in 2009 that with ObamaCare, Democrats would allow the federal government to “pull the plug on grandma” by establishing “death panels” that would help determine end-of-life care for individuals.
