Smiling Chuck Grassley.
President Obama two days ago praised Chuck Grassley (R-IA) as a reasonable man working to get health care reform of some sort through the United States Senate. The very next day, Smiling Chuck, the Farmer-Lawmaker, as he bills himself told a public audience that they have a right to be fearful the batshit crazy tales and baseless rumors of the far right wing respecting Death Panels and the like under the proposed health care bills. Some gratitude this man showed the President who the day before had been the beneficiary of presidential praise. Grassley, who has accepted 2.5 million dollars from the health care insurance industry and Big Pharma since 2003 has emerged as a knight in shining armor to do the bidding of that industry. He is also responsible (along with Vice President Biden) for having given the Nation the Bankruptcy Reform act so desired and begged for by the banking industry. His solution to the bankruptcy 'crisis' was fix what the banks said was wrong with our bankruptcy system on the backs of poor people.
I am led inexorably to the obvious conclusion that Smiling Chuck is not only part of the problem with this Nation but is a whore and harlot. The only question in my mind is will he be an honest whore and harlot and stay bought.
