Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), ranking member on the Senate Finance Committee, has taken the lead role in negotiating the health care reform bill for the GOP. But earlier today during a radio interview with Iowa City's KCJJ, Grassley steered the conversation with a caller toward rationing health care services among the elderly, one of the right wing's favorite fearmongering tactics when it comes to health care reform. And as an example, Grassley cited Sen. Ted Kennedy's (D-MA) brain tumor. Grassley said that in countries with government-run health care, Kennedy "would not get the care he gets here because of his age."
