This needs no explanation. Just watch the video. Grayson is a True American Hero.
Grayson, in true fighter form, takes the tax fight straight to the republicans in a way that is easily understandable, humorous, and scathing.
He's not afraid to say that with the republican tax cut for the rich, the rich can take their $83,000+ a YEAR they'll be getting for ten years and "buy their favorite mustard, Grey Poupon" 20,000 jars of it!
Or, they could buy a bottle of wine bottled in 1787 for $56,000 dollars. "Thanks republican party!"
Or, as he points out, we could take that money and "give 3,000,000 Americans....(pause)....a job." A good, $30,000 a year job for 3,000,000 Americans so they can pay their credit card bills, their mortgages, feed their families, heat their homes, and help the economy.
"Do the math: we have 14 million people in this country who are unemployed, and we have 13 percent unemployment in my district," he said. "Here's an idea: let's take that hundred billion dollars and give three million Americans a job. Let's give three million Americans a working wage, an honest day's pay for an honest day's work, and that will revive our economy."
This man needs to be cloned and sent to Capitol Hill.
Update-- Wow, rec list! First time folks. I take a virtual bow to you in sincere humbleness. But it's Grayson that deserves the rec list. He's doing what should be done by more democrats.
**Congressman Grayson, I know you probably won't read this diary, but maybe one of your aides will. I implore you, on behalf of democrats wanting more spine in our party, please do NOT leave the political arena. We need you. Our COUNTRY needs you. Working Americans need you. You're a true patriot fighting the good fight. We sorely need more public servants like you, especially during this time in our nation's history.
