It's wonderful having Alan Grayson back in Congress. Grayson treats Republicans exactly as they deserve to be treated and should be treated. I wish we had many more Alan Graysons in the Democratic Party.
On Tuesday evening while discussing Paul Ryan's latest budget proposal on Current TV, Grayson gave Ryan the treatment he deserved and should receive from every Democrat in Washington (see Crooks & Liars, Raw Story).
“In one case after another, you look at his principles, you look at his vision, and they’re a nightmare for America,” Grayson said of Ryan. “He wants Americans to work until they die, he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor, not to get the care they need, not to get better, he wants them to die, and he wants an America that consists of nothing but cheap labor for his corporate patrons.”
No mincing words here: If you're healthy, Paul Ryan wants you to work until you die. If you're sick, he just wants you to die. These comments echo Grayson's charge against Republicans in 2009: "If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly."
Grayson continued: “Paul Ryan believes that Social Security is unconstitutional, just like anyone who follows the writings of Ayn Rand would believe. If you read the Fountainhead, if you read similar fiction — although they don’t regard it as fiction — you come to the conclusion that these are people who believe government itself, anything that does anything for people other than defend the borders, is fundamentally immoral and unconstitutional.”
Alan Grayson tells it like it is.
