End of Life Assistance Written out of Health Care by Senate Nut Job Grassley

I couldn't believe this headline in the NY Times:

"Senators Drop End-of-Life Provisions From Health Care Legislation"

Or this over a Chicago Tribune story:

"'Death Panels' dropped"

Even more unbelievable are the reasons given by someone we now know as crazy Charles.
Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said on Wednesday that end-of-life care, fast becoming a hot-button issue, will not be addressed in health care legislation emerging from the committee. In a prepared statement, Sen. Grassley said, “Maybe others can defend a bill like the Pelosi bill that leaves major issues open to interpretation, but I can’t.”
"We dropped end-of-life provisions from consideration entirely because of the way they could be misinterpreted and implemented incorrectly."
Your interpretation is demented. It's not a controversial hot button issue but an absolutely insane "pull the plug on granny" fiction created by Bizarro World escapees.

The Tribune also writes, "For Democrats, the decision was an apparent acknowledgment that the provion has become a lighting rod for critics of the overhaul..."

As long as the Democrats continue to give in to the lying school yard bullies, a reason the Republicans are so extreme now, we allow them some shred of credibility over every phoney unhinged issue.

Stop the insanity!
