Man confronts Chuck Grassley on ACA repeal: ‘You’re gonna create one big death panel!’

At a town hall event this Tuesday in Iowa, a farmer gave state Senator Chuck Grassley an earful on the GOP’s plans to repeal Obamacare under President Trump.

At a town hall event this Tuesday in Iowa, a farmer gave state Senator Chuck Grassley an earful on the GOP’s plans to repeal Obamacare under President Trump.

“I’m on ObamaCare,” Chris Peterson, 62, told Grassley. “If it wasn’t for ObamaCare, we wouldn’t be able to afford insurance.”

“Over 20 million will lose coverage and with all due respect, sir, you’re the man that talked about the death panels. We’re going to create one great big death panel in this country that people can’t afford to get insurance.”

Peterson was referring to an anti-Obamacare talking point from Obama’s presidency, where Republicans claimed implementation of the law would result in “death panels” that would dictate end-of-life care for individuals.

“I believe at this point, with any one of those three, [those] 20 million people won’t lose because we made clear that for those on the exchange, the [coverage] will continue,” Grassley replied.

“Don’t repeal ObamaCare, improve it for god’s sakes,” Peterson shot back.

    Let me say, too, that in any given situation the people we should be thinking of most of all are the people for whom we are responsible. It makes no more sense for some Christian couple to refuse to get civilly married as a protest of gay “marriage” than it made for Brad Pitt and whats-her-name to refuse to get married as a protest of there not being enough gay “marriage.” That kind of commitment to a cause over commitment to real, on-the-ground people is pretty much definitional of being an ideologue. The couple’s responsibility is not to send some kind of message by having the father adopt his child when they bear children together (and I would ask them what kind of message _that_ sends anyway, if we’re talking about messages!). Their responsibility is to each other, their families, and their own children, not to some vague societal movement.
