Chichester's Entourage Checks In / RE: Chuck Grassley

Regarding Chuck Grassley and SCHIP expansion in today's WaPo:

"They can’t have it both ways – the program funds POOR children and should remain as such. Reckless expansion threatens the medical industry, will drive up costs further, makes government more and more the single-payer and rationing. Moreover, the tax code needs to change to allow more HSAs and write-offs for individual insurance.

"The GOP should have this debate. They won it before and should engage it again. Not be a little 'less Democrat.' That’s a political loser, and the reason they were the minority on the Hill for 40 years. Chuck Grassley would just assume to be fat, dumb and happy in the minority for the rest of his career as Mr. Ranking Member. " - Rick "Flash" Davis.
