Alan Grayson: Olympia Snowe Wasn't Elected President

In a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives last night Rep. Alan Grayson hit on some points that a lot of health care reform advocates have been stressing for quite some time. We elected a Democratic majority because we wanted real leadership on issues like health care. The Republicans had their opportunity and simply let it slide as they were promoting their bitterly partisan agenda. Therefore, it's deeply disappointing to hear some leaders talk about gutting reform in hopes of getting one or two Republicans to sign onto the bill. Fortunately, I think more and more people are beginning to realize that the Republican members of Congress are more interested in playing political games than getting things done. Hopefully that means we'll actually see the legislative process move forward.
