Congressman Demanding Grayson Apology Praised Joe Wilson
Republicans are all over Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL, right) for saying, “If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly. That’s right. The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.” But they didn’t get all upset when Republicans like Sarah Palin used scare tactics like their claims that Democrats would bring you “death panels.” And where were the Republicans calling on Joe “You Lie” Wilson to apologize?
In the case of Tom Price (below), nowhere.
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) drafted a “resolution of disapproval” saying Grayson’s conduct was “a breach of decorum and degraded the integrity and proceedings of the House.”
Price spokesman Brendan Buck put out a statement saying, “It is the job of the speaker to ensure the House runs with proper decorum, and we would hope that [Speaker Pelosi] would not tolerate such behavior. As Mr. Grayson has shown no remorse for his antics, we have called on the speaker to take the appropriate action to resolve this matter. Any future decision on a resolution will rest on the ability of the speaker to control her members.”
That is so funny, since Tom Price praised Joe Wilson after Wilson’s lack of decorum.
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), leader of House conservatives, invoked Samuel Adams: “It doesn’t take a majority to prevail, but an irate and tireless minority keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men. Thank you so much for setting those brush fires.Click here for reuse options!
