Quote of the Day

For today's quote, I chose democratic Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida who is drawing the wrath of republicans. They demand he apologize for his saying on the House floor that "the Republicans’ healthcare plan involved wanting people to 'die quickly.'"

Rep. Alan Grayson: “I would like to apologize to the dead, and here’s why. According to the study ‘Health Insurance and Mortality in US Adults,’ which was published two weeks ago, 44,789 Americans die every year because they have no health insurance…Let’s remember that we should care about people even after they’re born. ... I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.”

Grayson has refused to apologize.

*Thanks to Democracy Now! for highlighting this.
