Congressman Eric Massa (D-N.Y.)addressed other issues during his talk with progressive online activists at Netroots Nation 2009. He commented that a statement made by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) last week was an “act of treason.” Mr. Grassley recently made waves after saying that there should not be a government healthcare plan that would “pull the plug on granny.” In the video, above (:38 seconds in) Mr. Massa says:
MASSA: I mean, what Grassley said the other day was an act of treason. I’m sorry. It’s not being called on.
The Senate Finance Committee removed the end of life provisions in the midst of the uproar over Mr. Grassley’s town hall statements. Conservative activists, however, are not buying that the health care legislation is any better.
