I need to take a moment to address this mental midget.
First, I’d like a third party to take a look at the paper you scooped up thinking that it was a GOP plan for health care reform. You argued that it was blank. I’d argue that you’re probably illiterate and wouldn’t know the difference.
Second, your delivery was awful. Amateurish at best. George Carlin is dead, and he could have delivered your joke of a speech far better than you did.
Third, if your interpretation of the Republican Party plan for health care is “die quickly,” then my interpretation of the Democrats’ plan is “die cheaply.” There are only two places for the Democrats to find money to pay for their health care reform — Medicare cuts and reduction in spending for end-of-life care. Explain that to the seniors in your district. Whose plan is it, exactly, that is encouraging death?
Fourth, back in August you actually admitted that “roughly one-third of all the files the government has in its possession are lost … that’s a fact.” So how, exactly, can you argue that the government is qualified in any way, shape or form to run one-sixth of the nation’s economy? How, exactly, can you argue that the very people who cannot effectively run a congressional cafeteria can manage care for every American? Please.
Congressman Grayson, I have a three-step plan for you:
- Pack up your office. Your number is up in a little more than thirteen months. The American people can see and smell what you and your party has been shoveling, and they don’t want it anymore.
- Find a real job. I don’t know your history. I don’t know if you’ve ever worked in the private sector, but here’s a clue — stupid, childish displays like the one you just manufactured on the House floor are not well tolerated in businesses that actually need to report a profit.
- Try Hooked-On-Phonics. The Republicans have been touting a plan for a while now, including tort reform, opening up interstate competition among private insurance companies and other measures that will facilitate a free-market approach to health care, not stifle it. Perhaps if you were able to read, you would have seen it on the “blank” piece of paper you scooped up following your Dear Leader’s speech to Congress. Either way, standing on the House floor and stating as fact that no ideas have been provided by the GOP is downright irresponsible. To quote Congressman Joe Wilson: “You lie.”
Get a life. I don’t care how you do it. Quit wasting taxpayer money on your childish games, posterboard, office space and salary. Wasn’t it Steny Hoyer who spoke about conduct which reflects positively on the U.S. House of Representatives? I’d be ashamed to see your venom, ignorance and stupidity in my child’s pre-school classroom. Grow up.
Certainly not my most eloquent work. And perhaps it was even a bit harsh. But frankly, I’m growing tired of the left’s overt refusal to debate health care reform on the merits, to actually argue and hash out details within the bills they’re pushing. Now, I’ve never been a blanket apologist for the Republican Party, but during the course of this health care debate one party has been working to educate the American people about the contents of the various bills and proposals while the other party has been working overtime to conceal them. It has been the Democrats who have refused to provide transparency, who have blatantly sold fraudulent misrepresentations and omissions to the American people, and yet they accuse the Republicans of reckless gamesmanship? It’s got to stop.
And then we have Congressman Alan Grayson, who instead of addressing actual concerns about citizenship verification, federal funding for abortions, and adverse changes for seniors wasted how much taxpayer money on his childish little display? Even if it was $25 at the Capitol Hill Office Depot, it was too much. Send that money to a senior who needs to pay for a prescription, or a soldier’s wife who just wants to bring their kids to Pizza Hut.
Die quickly. Unbelievable. If it weren’t sickeningly ignorant and coming from a member of a political party knowingly advancing a plan that would result in rationed care for our sick and elderly, it would be funny. But it’s not. It’s not funny at all. And I’ll do everything I can to ensure that it is Congressman Grayson’s political career which dies quickly. I’m no doctor, but I give it only a little more than a year.
