We have our first Republican taking credit (http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/grassley-look-how-great-this-health-care-bill-is.php?ref=fpblg) for the health care reform bill!
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), who voted against the bill, has denounced it repeatedly, and who was a critical factor in gumming up negotiations in the Senate last summer, issued a press release (http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/grassley-look-how-great-this-health-care-bill-is.php?ref=fpblg) today touting his authorship of an obscure provision in the bill:

In 2009, he drafted legislative reforms and succeeded in persuading the Democratic majority to include several of the reforms in the new health care law. ... that he then voted against!

Grassley gets the "Brass Balls" award this week.

Politician just like the rest of them. All of them, both sides of the aisle are beneath contempt.

I would suggest tarring and feathering the lot of them, but it would be a waste of good tar and feathers.
