Specter: ‘I’ll Call Chuck Grassley Today’

PITTSBURGH – The conversation with Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) heated up a bit as he took questions on what he could do to bring Republicans on board with Democratic bills. “I’m close to Chuck Grassley; we came in at the same time,” said Specter. “You don’t need any help with Senator Snowe.” Specter was pressed on Grassley’s comments (first reported in The Iowa Independent) apparently giving credence to the idea that the Democrats want a “death panel” in the health care bill. “He’s in The New York Times this morning and he’s wrong. I’ll call him today.” That prompted shouts of “Call him now!”

“They’re saying ‘call him now,’” said moderator Ari Melber.

“Whoever said that, join me backstage and watch me dial.” Specter held his hand up, and wiped his mouth, smiling; the crowd ate it up.
