Alan Grayson: ‘Callous, Bigoted’ Republicans Put Laws Up For Sale To The Highest Bidder

In a fundraising video uploaded to YouTube on Monday, Representative Alan Grayson (D-FL) attacked Republicans as “callous bigoted tools” who served only themselves and the rich.

“They have no interest whatsoever in anything but personal advancement, and the means by which they advance are to sell-out, to carve the law up into little pieces and put it up for sale to the highest bidder,” he said. “That’s the reality of the situation.”

However, Grayson acknowledged there existed a “small number” of principled Republicans with whom he could find common ground. One such Republican was former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who he worked together with on legislation to audit the Federal Reserve.

Grayson made it clear that working with Republican was not a primary concern of his. He said the people of his congressional district deserved a “gladiator” who would fight for justice, equality and peace — either with Republicans or without them.

“I feel disgust towards many of these people,” Grayson said of his fellow lawmakers. “Frankly, not only the Republicans. There are so many people who show no responsibility at all to the 700,000 people who elected them, sent them to Congress and are looking for them to do something useful for them in their lives.”

2. Such intelligence ,honesty and decency.

And yet is portrayed and thought of as some wild eyed radical by too many, including, from what I've seen, in his own party (as he in turn calls them out when necessary). There isn't any part of this that isn't honest and sensible, and when you think about what the Democratic Party is supposed to be, is really quite moderate too, unless telling it like it is about Republicans is no longer allowed to be considered moderate..
