I mean I always liked Rep. Grayson, he's one of the good guys, there's no doubt about that.

I agree with him that everyone needs healthcare despite having not everyone having a "right" to it. But healthcare reform is something else.

There's better things that can be done instead of Health Insurance Reform.

I think he's a good person at heart but not sure if I agree with him here.

But he's definately never afraid to speak his mind that's for sure, and I do respect that.

Not sure you agree with him?

I can't believe there is any doubt in your post.

I don't know much about him but I can tell you this, for being the first time to see him, I DO NOT LIKE HIM. Period. You do not try to blackmail people into buying into this garbage that is being force fed to us. That is exactly what he is doing. Not speaking his own mind. He's using fear and HORRENDOUS events in our history to push an agenda.

One of the good guys? Sorry. He seems to be on the 'agenda' train to me. Just one of the atypical politicians.

Under Godwin's law he just lost any and all credibility, just another talking head in Washington invoking fear of the Nazis to get his way. Tie that in with appealing to the general reverence for ones deceased friends and family and you have a great PR move, except hes still just another politician.

I know, the only reason why i'm saying this is because he's very much trying to Audit The Fed, he's an important part of that movement.

On another note

Pelosi the idiot speaks her "mind"


Apparently Republicans hold Democrats to a higher standard than they hold members of their own party," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference on Thursday. "There's no reason for Mr. Grayson to apologize. If anyone should apologize, everyone should apologize

www.huffingtonpost.com...

Pelosi is stupid
She should apologize

I love this guy! The only thing I didn't think was right was that he used the term "Holocaust". That has one meaning only and it didn't fit here. Otherwise, I say, "Bravo"!

I started a thread on this yesterday.

Xtreme Politics: Grayson remains defiant on 'die quickly' remarks

I think he went over the top with the comment, but I have to agree with him that congress needs to get health care reform done. It is not just the republicans fault.

This is getting ridiculous!

So, let me get this straight, Helig.

If you want health care reform, you're a talking head in Washington, but those who don't want it and are against it are the true saviors of our country?

Does anyone else on here see where many of the members of ATS are going?

A bit theatrical or dramatic. Sure. But the facts are the facts. Over 44,000 people a year in the self-proclaimed number 1 country in the world died when there was no need for them to die. That's a humanitarian crime that rivals what some of you same people who decry it in other places in the world would have a seizure over. It's a hard fact to swallow that the U.S. is not number 1 in a lot of areas, isn't it? And I for one believe that until this and the other areas where we are lacking (education, infant mortality, life expectancy, hunger) are fixed in this country we have no RIGHT to be messing with other people's countries. Period. The World Prime Directive.

He's got a point, but he crossed the line.

He's just using disturbing imagery to try to force emotions to pass a bill quickly that should be debated ad nauseum.

Currently the health care reforms become too opressive. It is too much to FORCE people to buy coverage. The govt. has NO RIGHT to do this.

This man has lost it.

Pro tip: don't put words in peoples mouth

Did I even once say that people against the healthcare sham are somehow saviors of our country? Where did I infer that, because I'm pretty sure there is nothing in my previous post which can be construed by anybody to mean what you are claiming.

Where I as a member of ATS am going is to point out to everyone that these people are NOT looking out for your welfare, they are at the end of the day doing whatever is necessary to make money and keep their job. If there were no votes to be gained or money to be made in this whole thing do you honestly think anybody in congress would give a wrinkled rats hind section about healthcare in this country?

Yes, I do.

I think there is corruption in the Senate, but I also think that are people in there who care for their constituents.

I love it!

If this had been a Republican then all you liberals would be screaming that this is propaganda.

But noooo, this is a Democrat so of course its all facts.


Lets stop blaming the Republicans for the Health Care Reform not being shoved through without a problem. The Dems have a super majority, they do not need one single vote from the Republicans to pass this.

You liberals are so stupid, you actually buy into the belief that the Republicans are to blame for the stalling of the Reform.



Dems= Super Majority, you do not need the Repubs to agree at all with you. But can't agree with each other so in order to hide that fact they blame the Republicans. Which of course the ignorant liberals swallow hook, line and sinker.

Repubs= Not having any power at all to stop anything in Washington. Loving the fact that the Dems can't enjoy their super majority and come together to force a bill through.

Somehow it'll all be Bush's fault. Wait and see. That is how mind-numbingly moronic liberals are these days. Present company not excluded.

I don't often, if ever, agree with you
But here you are correct

This truth that you spoke, I see it as reality and I also see it really really blinding the people like never before.

Everyone these days I see agreeing with the Dems only because they aren't republicans.

It's amazing how people in a 1st world country are like zombies.

this is brain dead thinking people!

Imagine being poor and one day you have this pain in your stomach. It's so bad you have to go to the emergency room. When you get there they do some scans and blood work. They come back in to tell you that you have stomach cancer and that you should see a specialist. Thank you and have a nice day.

The only problem is you can't see a specialist because you have no insurance. The next thing you know your at home with stomach cancer waiting to die. No nothing nobody no answers. Just looking at the walls in pain waiting to die.

The senator is speaking for those people. He is speaking for those who have no where to go and no means of treatment.

Where in the Heck do you people live?
In our local hospitals you would get treatment. You would see that specialist before you even leave the hospital, that is if you are not admitted, which you will be if it is that bad.
What hospital do these people you are talking about go to?
I just don't get all this ( they don't get treated ) crap.
I don't know anyone that has Ever been denied health care. I think this is just, what you have heard, from whoever wants you to believe this.

Booyaah! Right on rep. Grayson. I like this guy too but I don't trust either
parties version of any kind of health reform. I don't believe in leaving
people out in the cold without treatment. Both parties have proven their
untrustworthiness so I'm not sure where to go from here. The system
needs fixing for sure but I for one am a dependant on it. If anything were
to get changed and I couldnt get my meds I would be dead within a week.
Maybe im number 44,800 and eight. Pfft, who cares?

Another version of the same "fiction" - except this one is far closer to the truth:

Imagine being poor and one day you have this pain in your stomach. It's so bad you have to go to the emergency room. When you get there they see you before all the people who have actually paid for their health insurance and do some scans and blood work. They come back in to tell you that you have stomach cancer and that you should see a specialist. They call the specialist, who juggles their schedule to fit you in even if it pushes back appointments and surgeries for people that have actually paid for their health insurance. Your surgery is then done free of charge to you - helping to push up the costs of the people that actually paid for their health insurance.

And now the really sad part ...

The only problem is that now people that actually paid for their health insurance can't see a specialist in a timely basis because you have no insurance and have been put in the queue ahead of them. The next thing they know is you're at home with your stomach cancer cured and now they're waiting to die. Because of you, they didn't get to see a specialist in time. No nothing nobody no answers. Just looking at the walls in pain waiting to die.

The senator is making up stories for those people naive enough to believe him. He is using totally inappropriate metaphors such as the Holocaust and playing on the misguided sympathies of those who have no clue what's being debated on and passed by their elected representatives in congress.
