Nancy Pelosi is shrugging off GOP calls for a mea culpa from Alan “they want you to die quickly’ Grayson.
“We have to have a debate that is not distracted from… Apparently Republicans are holding Democrats to a higher level than they are holding their own members,” she said, referring to floor comments by some Republicans who have said Democratic health care reforms would lead to higher deaths among seniors.
“There’s no more reason for Mr. Grayson to apologize… If anybody’s going to apologize everybody should apologize,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference.
We should apologize for opposing a health care plan that will cost us billions, we should apologize for speaking our mind at town halls and tea parties, we should apologize for not blindly following the Democratic agenda etc…
