GOP Introduces Anti-Grayson Resolution

If they weren’t already busy enough with an anti-Charles Rangel resolution, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) is hoping fellow Republicans will back his resolution admonishing Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.). The text:

Whereas on September 29, 2009, during proceedings on the floor of the House of Representatives, Rep. Alan Grayson from Florida described the Republican health care plan as “die quickly”;

Whereas on September 29, 2009, during Rep. Grayson’s speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, he presented a sign for display, which read, “The Republican Health Care Plan: Die Quickly”;

Whereas on September 29, 2009, Rep. Grayson repeatedly stated that “Republicans’ health care plan” was for Americans to “die quickly”;

Whereas on September 29, 2009, Rep. Grayson concluded his speech by saying, “Remember, the Republican plan: Don’t get sick. And if you do get sick, die quickly.”

Whereas the conduct of the Representative from Florida was a breach of decorum and degraded the integrity and proceedings of the House;

Now, therefore be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from Florida, Mr. Grayson, during proceedings on the floor of the House of Representatives on September 29, 2009.

Grayson is a douchebag. It's written all over that fat, douchebag face of his.

Is Tom Price going to introduce a resolution disapproving of all of the republicans who said on the House floor that Democrats wanted to kill people with their health plan, incluing himself? When he does that, then maybe folks will pay attention.

Sorry, lil buddy, you got that wrong. Tom Price is a douchebag. I guess Price forgot about his and his republican cohorts' lies and scaremongering on the House floor when they said the same thing about the Democrats' health plan. Price's hypocrisy makes him a douche to the highest degree, plus an assclown!

Ha ha – I didn't hear any Republicans denouncing “Death Panels” – it's a bit different when the shoe is on the other foot, eh?

Name it the “Dick Cheney- Go @#$% Yourself, I can say whatever I like, but you can't Free Speech Resolution” and you got yourself a winner. I mean whoever heard of a Rep on the House floor accusing the other party of wanting to cause people to die…

First off, it's douche bag. Two words, there Einstein. Secondly, I thought resolutions like this were “wasting valuable time” during important legislation.

Bottom line here is that Grayson is right. That is the GOoPers plan. Don't get sick and if you do, die quickly so it doesn't cost the taxpayers too much money.

Sorry, it's you who are the douche bag. See? Two words. That way your spell checker doesn't underline your word in red dots!

No need to thank me for the tip. I'm sure you've wondered what that anomaly on your computer screen was for ages.

How about coming up with a health plan instead of this nonsense.
