I would like to see 170 Alan Grayson-types replace them!
Alan Grayson knows what needs to be done to stop this march toward austerity and suffering for the American people: We have to get rid of the neo-liberal “new Democrats” who are basically conservative TEApublicans who have a (D) next to their name.
Interviewed on Pivot Point with Maya Rockeymoore, Grayson was asked by the host what it meant that only 30 Democrats pledged to vote against cuts to Social Security and Medicare in the form of Chained CPI, Grayson didn’t pull any punches saying,
“It means that roughly 170 of them need to be primaried next year. That’s what that means.”
“There are just too many people starting from the President on down who think that any deal is better than no deal, even if it’s a bad deal…Now we have one party that wants to destroy Social Security and another party that wants to compromise with them. That’s not what the voters deserve. That’s like choosing between Diet Coke and Coke Zero.”
Grayson went on to say that the party that created Social Security and Medicare should protect those programs, not help to destroy them.
Keep hammering them, Congressman Grayson! We got your back!
