A Democrat with "testículos de acero", Rep Alan Grayson has upset the apple cart.

"[T]hey confuse their customers and dump the sick, all so they can satisfy their Wall Street investors," -former Cigna senior executive Wendell Potter said during a hearing on health insurance

The health insurance debate continues to drag in congress. The Baucus bill is a sham and sellout to the health insurance industry and unless it includes a public option is not worth the paper it's printed on. No one has stated more clearly why we need health reform than Rep. Alan Grayson (D) Florida, (see video). The Republicans up to now to have had the democrats nuts in a vice and now steps forth a Democrat seemingly with the courage to challenge them and call them on the issues. A Democrat with "testículos de acero", Rep Alan Grayson has upset the apple cart.
Now maybe other Democrats will begin to speak out and say what the people have known all along, that we are tired of politics as usual and tired of the congress kissing up to health insurance lobbyist for the almighty dollar. It's time the Democrats act like Democrats and do what they were put into office to do. Give America a health care bill with a public option that will create competition for the Health Insurance industry, which will lower health insurance costs and provide a opportunity for all Americans to buy health care that will cover them when the need it the most, when they are sick. The only reason that some Democrats and all Republicans oppose the public option is that they are feeding at the troth of the health insurance industry, they have been bought. It is time to end the lies and hypocrisy.

The Health Insurance industry promises to raise prices if Baucus Bill passes.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D) Florida, On Countdown
A Democrat that walks, talks and acts like a Democrat. Clear speaking and making sense. Discusses Health Care.
