Grayson: “I’ll apologize to the dead.” Cites Single Payer Activist’s Study on House Floor

The other night Rep. Grayson said Republican want the sick to die quicker. Yesterday instead of apologizing for his childish remarks Grayson instead said “I’ll apologize to the dead.”

Grayson then goes on to cite a Harvard study that says 45,000 Americans die each year due to being uninsured. Problem is many have questioned this study and it’s highly questionable authors. Laed author Dr. Andrew Wilper is clearly pushing an agenda and co-author Dr. Steffie Woolhandler has been a single payer activist for decades pushing universal health care.

Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, study co-author, professor of medicine at Harvard and a primary care physician in Cambridge, Mass., noted: “Historically, every other developed nation has achieved universal health care through some form of nonprofit national health insurance. Our failure to do so means that all Americans pay higher health care costs, and 45,000 pay with their lives.”

Congressmen Grayson, this is not helping your argument!… comparing our current health care system to the holocaust?? Really? By the way Motor vehicle crashes cause 43,200 deaths in America per year — Poisoning 19,457 One American accidentally poisoned to death every 27 minutes — At home 18,048 One American killed in an accident at home every 29 minutes — Falls 17,227 One American killed in a fall every 31 minutes guess we should outlaw those? Your point is absurd and childish!
