Grassley Predicts Health Care Bill by August 1
Iowa Senator Charles Grassley predicts the U.S. Senate will pass a health care bill before August 1st. Grassley is working with his frequent partner, Montana's Democratic Senate Max Baucus, on a health care reform bill in the senate. Grassley told me he is pushing for two things in the package. He wants chronic disease care and coordinated care (he explained this is the followup care you receive after you leave the hospital, which could reduce the number of people who have to go back into the hospital with more serious problems later).
