GOP Seeks Apology over 'Die Quickly' Remark

Ad Feedback

Another U.S. congressman is being called on the carpet for speaking his mind. 

Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., has come under fire from House Republicans after accusing the GOP Tuesday of wanting sick Americans to "die quickly."

"If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly. That's right. The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick," Grayson said. 

Now Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., is demanding an apology and has gone so far as to draft a resolution of disapproval against the Florida congressman.

Price says Grayson's conduct was "a breach of decorum and degraded the integrity and proceedings of the House."

The measure is similar to one passed against Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. after he shouted "you lie!" at President Barack Obama during his address on health care.
        
Price says he'll hold off on introducing the resolution so Grayson can apologize.
        
So far, Grayson has refused to do so.
