They don't like it up 'em
I do chuckle when Republicans ask for an apology - especially when asking for one when it is obvious that the person being asked for the apology is, in fact, correct.
(CNN) – Republicans are pouncing on a late-night House floor speech from Rep. Alan Grayson, during which the freshman Florida Democrat said the Republican health care plan calls for sick people to "die quickly."
"It's a very simple plan," Grayson said in the speech Tuesday night. "Don't get sick. That's what the Republicans have in mind. And if you get sick America, the Republican health care plan is this: die quickly."
The after-hours speech, which included prominent banners behind the congressman to reinforce his point, drew immediate calls from some Republicans for an apology.
Is is quite obvious to the blindest of blind - with the exception of Republicans - that all they are trying to do is swamp out the healthcare reform Bill. It is also obvious that those Democrats who are on the take from insurers don't much like a public option either. But that is another op-ed.
All Greyson has done is say what many people think - and about time, too. The simple fact is that Republicans, rather than work with Democrats to get reform, are simply happy with the status quo - and that means doing nothing, regardless of how, if that should happen, the US will be bankrupt because of lack of reform.
All the arguments are out there - and most, but certainly not all, economists agree that the US needs radical reform.
It seems that, at last, at least, some Democrats are calling it as it is - the GOP are the party of no.
And the GOP don't like it - they don't like it up 'em one little bit.
