. . . [Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)] was critical of Obama’s latest round of attacks against the GOP on health care reform.
And Grassley charged that Obama isn’t limiting his attacks to just Republicans.
“I talked to a Democratic Congressman — not from Iowa — over the weekend, and the president said [to this Democrat], ‘You’re going to destroy my presidency.’ Now, this isn’t about President Obama,” Grassley said, adding: “Is this impeding our work? No, it’s not. What’s slowing the progress is how complicated these issues are.”
