Grassley says Baucus health care proposal has some bi-partisan pieces


UNDATED (KTIV) -- Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says Montana Senator Max Baucus' health care bill is different than anything that has come out of the house or senate so far.

He says this bill will not add to the deficit and will reduce inflation in health care. Grassley describes it as being built from a blank sheet.

"So what's there is, let me say, somewhat bipartisan. But there are some things that Senator Baucus had to include that weren't negotiated. So I can't say those parts are bipartisan," Grassley said.

Grassley expects the bill to be out of committee a week from Friday, at which debate on the senate floor will begin.
