On Wednesday afternoon, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) shed tears on the House floor during a speech on the need for health insurance reform. Reading letters from people who have lost their loved ones because they did not have health coverage, the emotional Congressman paid tribute to victims who he said "aren't often heard from."
"There are 44,789, who die every year from lack of health insurance," Grayson said. "In the course of my speech tonight, there will be five more."
The moving stories narrated by Grayson came from his website namesofthedead.com. Unveiled on the House floor last week, the congressman's initiative aims to shine light on the innocent victims of the U.S. health care system. "I hope that honoring them will help us end this senseless loss of American lives," Grayson wrote.
Or is this akin to a publicity stunt for him? seems he is making a habit of being outrageous. Is it sincere??

His is the biggest idiot in Washington to date - and that includes Pelosi. He even tried to justify the use of the term "whore" by telling reporters to look up other uses of the word like "someone who compromises his/her morals, values, or religion for a cause". That didn't help. That is exactly what any "whore" does. He is an absolute lune.
