Chuck Grassley:

After sharing his family’s personal struggle with the burden of high health care costs, an audience member asked, “My question is… why is your insurance so much cheaper than my insurance and so better than my insurance?”

The question made Grassley cranky.

He responded, first, by suggesting the questioner “go work for John Deere,” since they “don’t pay anything” for their insurance plan.

When the questioner refused to let the senator wriggle out of answering the question, Grassley revealed how little he knew about his own insurance plan.

Another audience member had to help the senator out by describing the details of the plan. After she finished, the original questioner again asked, “Okay, so how come I can’t have the same thing you have?”

Grassley’s response: “You can. Just go work for the Federal government.”

So the party of small government’s solution to healthcare is… to have everyone work for the government?
