Dave has been following the saga of Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), who incited a GOP uproar this week after charging that the Republicans’ health reform strategy is to let the sick “die quickly.” The comment caused GOP leaders to threaten an anti-Grayson resolution, to be introduced if Grayson failed to apologize for his remarks.
Roll Call has the tale of the apology, delivered Wednesday afternoon on the House floor:
After speaking extensively to the press, Grayson came to the floor with an apology, but not for the Republican Party.
“I would like to apologize,” he said. “I would like to apologize to the dead.”
No word yet of the GOP response.
