This Ones For You, Congressman Alan Grayson!

Congressman Alan Grayson told it like it is. On the floor of the House of Representatives Grayson, a Democrat from Florida's 8th District, said that the Republican plan for health care reform was not to get sick, and to die quickly.

He was asked to apologize for his remarks by the House Republican leadership. Grayson did apologize, but not to the Republicans. He apologized to the 45,000 Americans who will die this year because they have no health insurance. That's five per hour, or 15 during the time it takes to play an average NFL game.

Grayson did use the term "holocaust" in describing the situation- a regrettable and unfortunate choice of words. But its nice to know that at least one Democrat out there "has a pair", and will not back down to bullying of the not so Grand Old Party and their allies.

So this song's for you Alan Grayson....from some fellow Floridians.
