Grassley planning counter offer

WASHINGTON (CNN) - A source close to Republican Sen. Charles Grassley tells CNN he intends to offer counter proposals to Sen. Max Baucus tomorrow morning, as the Senate Finance Committee chair requested.

What changes he will offer is still unclear. He and his aides will work on it tonight.

The source did not want to speak on the record by name discussing internal deliberations.

  1. Republicans are the American Taliban

    The changes will be contained in a 19 page folder. The pages will be blank like the Taliban budget which still has yet to be seen. The pages will all have just one word typed on each page....NO!!!

    Only way to get this done is without the Marxist Obama, Pelosi or Reid, and with 2 people trying to get a partisan bill done.

    Obama is the worst president in history.

    MSNBC said that opposition to the Health Care Bill was due to racism. a Democrat, I think the only thing that anyone would have to do, is read HR 3200 (which was the favored bill proposed by Nancy Pelosi) and that would be enough to oppose the bill.

    Portions of the bill were read at town hall meetings, and it (the bill) silenced the room...both those for, and against it. Guess if the "paid" protesters got quiet after that, it proves Americans are smart enough to know a BAD bill once they read it or have it read to them.

    President Obama said he would go through it line by line...did he?
