Guess the Republicans looked at the polls! Via TPM:

We have our first Republican taking credit 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 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!

One thought on “Chutzpah

  1. No doubt—come November—-many more of the idiot opposition will try to convince their constituents that they were for it before they were against it. But I just don’t believe they’ll be able to sell it that way since the reforms that’ll start kicking in really will impact our everyday lives in a real way.
