Representative Alan Grayson makes the truth hurt.

Some would call it a stunt, but all indications suggest that Alan Grayson was spot on. Lots of people are dying because of the lack of health insurance. Many of those people live in Congressional Districts overseen by Republicans who prefer the status quo. Grayson simply added 2 plus 2, and it made the Republicans livid.

If they don’t like it, then they should do something about it. That’s how I see it. The solution is not to hide the facts that people in your district are dying from a problem that might have a solution but that you are not seeking any solution.

    Stopped by because you had a good post on time vs writing length.  So, I stopped to look around.  I found this an interesting blog and will be recommending it to one of my fellow bloggers in Lowell, MA.

    I thought this post kind of missed the point, as has Ms Pelosi, that we need more Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners in order to meet the needs of those with health problems.  Improving insurance without providing more practitioners seems like a way to either raise the cost of health care or to ensure that we move around who is getting poor health coverage.  I don't yet see much talk of expanding the work force.
