Health Care Reform: All or Nothing? Grassley Says Nothing

Here's a quote from Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D-WV) about bipartisanship and health care reform...
"But do you want to be non-partisan and get nothing? Or do you want to be partisan and end up with a good health care plan? That is the choice."

-- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), quoted in the Charleston Gazette, expecting little Republican support in passing health care reform.
Sen. Grassley, however, thinks the bill must be bipartisan and Republicans need to make sure there is no public option.

Health care for half the country, none for others?


Both Democrats and Republicans are needed to pass serious health care reform or anything passed will surely be window dressing and inadequate to qualify as real health care that includes such issues as disability and chronic care needs.

America doesn't need window dressing; no nation does.
