Alan Grayson puts the scare into the DC Villagers...again
If you think Alan Grayson (D-FL) only upsets Republicans, you'd be wrong.
In his latest slam speech, Grayson first slams the corporate whore and phony "moderate," Republican Senator, Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), while simultaneously slamming Democrats for even worrying about her vote, and worrying about getting 60 votes instead of just getting 51. Then, he slams Republicans in a way that is remarkably prophetic as it was before Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
I love Grayson. It's great to see a real trial lawyer in Congress (as opposed to the guys or gals who go to law school and then go immediately into politics) who takes no garbage from anyone, and lays out his position in a practical, sharp and witty manner with fact-based logic and not simply rhetoric.
I first heard of Grayson about a week before he did his great bit on the Republican health care plan when he skewered this poor general counsel for the Federal Reserve Board. If you notice Grayson's questioning, there's no big speechifying. Just short, sharp questions that show the poor general counsel is in over his head and that the Fed is not doing its oversight job. Tough stuff and truly outstanding. He did the same here with the Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve Board while a brand new congressman in January. Grayson is clearly trying to open up the Fed to what is probably a much needed audit. How dare the Fed say that it has to keep quiet who it lent money to...I find that appalling myself...
