Alan Grayson was one of the staunchest defenders of the Affordable Care Act. A true liberal, this guy needs to be re-elected to the House.

I agree. Grayson is on the absolute correct side of the issues...

Alan Grayson: Easy to explain why I lost

“In my case, it’s simply a matter of the Democrats not voting,” Grayson, who was defeated by Republican Dan Webster in Florida’s 8th District, said. “We don’t have the final numbers from Election Day yet, but in the early voting, when you compare the vote this time to the vote in 2008, the Republicans dropped about 20 percent, and the Democratic vote dropped 60 percent.”

Hopefully, the base will now realize how important it is to have Grayson in office.

Right. The Act that is turning out to be a disaster. Costing FAR more than first (lied about) predicted. Raising costs. Forcing people out of the healthcare that the lefty loons, such as Grayson, promised they could keep.

This man is NUTS!!!!

Not to mention the new "tax" on the "middle" class, after he promised he wouldn't raise taxes on anyone making less than 250k a year.

Yeah, re-elect a loud mouth lunatic who's known more for his rhetoric than anything else. There is a reason he was booted before.

First of all, Grayson was an advocate for The Public Option which was actually better than what passed thanks to the right wing.

Please explain what is "nuts" about Grayson's stances on the issues.

Nonsense. Going to the ER uninsured and letting the rest of us pay for your bill is nuts. That's MOOCHING pure and simple. And yet, that's what has been happening for decades, raising the cost of health care for everyone.

Obligating people to buy insurance or pay a fine is the fiscally responsible and conservative thing to do. Heck, even the conservative Heritage foundation proposed that as an alternative to the Clinton health care plan in 1994.

It is one of 2 newly created districts and it is safe Democratic. It is almost certain he will win.

Grayson is the liberal equivalent of Allen West. He's just in there for entertainment purposes.
