On this morning's Face the Nation, Grasley blamed the "pull the plug on Grandma" language on Obama.
"And the specific language I used was language that the president had used at Portsmouth. And I thought that if he used the language, then if I responded exactly the same way, that I had an opposite concern about not using end-of-life counseling for saving money, then I was answering and relieving the fears that my constituents had."
