Sen. Grassley comments on health care legislation

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Chuck Grassley today made the following comment on the motion to proceed to health care legislation expected this afternoon:

“I’d like to see every Republican senator vote in favor of the motion to proceed.  Democrats ought to join the effort, too.  By not voting to move to proceed, senators would send the message that Obamacare is fine as it is.  We have to be intellectually honest and acknowledge that that's not the case.  Moving to proceed to health care legislation gives all 100 senators the chance to debate the issue and offer their amendments and ideas.   Then each senator can decide how to vote, based on the final bill and how it’s amended.  The Senate process should have a chance to work for the benefit of the American people.”
