More pathetic doubletalk from Grassley

Grassley throws gasoline on the "death panel" bonfire, and in the same breath accuses Obama of exploiting the "death panel" flap.

Grassley called Obama and Pelosi "intellectually dishonest" on Tuesday, saying that Democrats were using the flap over end-of-life consultations to divert attention away from health care legislation currently being considered in the House. The Iowa Republican, while not explicitly mentioning euthanasia or rationing of care, also said that he did not want government policy to "treat life at age 85 different than we do life at 35." (At a town hall meeting last week in Adel, Iowa, the senator said, "We should not have a government plan that will pull the plug on grandma.")
