Time to ration Congress' benefits.

Further, time to ration health insurance profits, not Americans' health care.

Recess Rally - Nationwide Rally against socialized Medicine 8/22/09
(this grassroots effort is really astro turf)

Rachel Maddow exposes the big money backers posing as average Americans
behind the anti-health care reform event "Recess Rally." ... recessrally.com

NOTE: didn't get into the site recessrally.com until 2am, it was very busy. Site lists
every state and rally address. I'll be there 8/22/09 in support of health care reform now.

Premium individual HMO 258/mo increased to 598./mo within the last 8yrs. deductible
and co-pays have also increased.

202) 224-3744 (O) Wash dc office (515) 288-1145 Des Moines office.....these are the office numbers contact Grassley and let him know that he will not have such an easy time next election cycle. Secondly, this man is a rural farmer that has been able to hold his seat because of the farm vote. He has no plans or ideas other than investigating AA ministers and their constituents.

I wish there were either term limits or mandatory retirement in government. I think that once an elected offical begins to resemble a turtle, it is time to go. Grassley and McConnell are the first two that come to mind.

this may very well be the shortest, most convincing and most unquestionable argument that can be made in this case.

He makes claims just based on "he has been told" We all can come and say that, that does not make it so. The same accomplished liars who told the nation all about the WMDs in Iraq, now scaring the elderly, and I know some who are worried about Medicare now, based on the lies of the Republican s.c.u.m.

Watch Jon Stewart's evisceration of Grassley's incredibly lame "Sir Lancelot" graphical demonstration on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Then decide whether his many years as a legislator have given Grassley any great advantage:

Grassley, in his many contradictory statements, seems like he's wandered away from his keepers. He certainly does not appear to be trying to further the goal of universal coverage.

Grassley is beyond stupid. Please tell me he does not represent what Iowa is today.
10:10 AM on 08/06/2009
He doesn’t. We voted for Obama. Chuckie’s approval rating in Iowa has dropped 13 points since January and I bet it will drop another 10 points this month.

What's the Senator talking about? Was he educated in a hog confinement barn down there in Iowa?

Kennedy HAS government run health care and his care is paid for by tax payer dollars - as is Grassley's. And he'd have Medicare - another government run health care program - if he didn't have his Federal Employee coverage. If Grassley and the other Senators think government care is so bad, why doesn't he and everyone against the public option drop their government insurance and refuse medicare or any VA benefits they might be entitled to and pay for a private plan?

The country where people are dying and getting substandard care because of rationing caused by lack of affordable coverage is the USA - where for profit private insurance dominates for those under age 65 IT's the insurance companies who are rationing care right now. Insurance companies who every single day chose without any compassion or emotion to let people die or find ways not to insure them in the first place. And they keep charging more and more money to do business this way driving more people out of the system into total rationed care - which is no care at all.

I’m beyond words. The voters of Iowa spoke last November and we voted to take this country in a new direction. Sir WearsDependsalot has done nothing in the last 8 months, but whine, complain, criticize and obstruct. The only town hall meetings he’s holding this month are in very small towns that McCain easily won. He’s too big of a narcissist to face anyone who won’t kneel and kiss his ring. Aurrrgh!!
