Apologies to the Dead

Another update: After Florida Rep. Alan Grayson said Wednesday that
the GOP health care plan was, "Don't get sick, or if you do, die
quickly," outraged Republicans insisted he apologize. Today, he did - to the estimated 44,789 Americans who die each year because they lack health insurance.

"I apologize to the dead and their families," he said. "Democrats have to have the guts...to take the majority that the American people gave to us
and do something with it. And what we have to do is solve people's
problems."
