Republicans have called on Rep. Alan Grayson to apologize for saying they want people to “die quickly” but Grayson isn’t backing down. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz discussed Republican attacks with Grayson Thursday.
SCHULTZ: Congressman, I’m sure you’re aware how they’re pushing back on you. The national Republican campaign has said this about you, they’re going after your character, and I think they’re trumping up a bunch of stuff. “This is an unstable man who has come unhinged. The depths of which alan grayson will sink to defend his indensible comments know no bounds. This is an individual who has established a pathological pattern of unstable behavior.” What is your response to that, Congressman? This is character assassination.
GRAYSON: My response is, whatever. America is sick of you Republican Party. You are a lie factory, that’s all you ever do. Work together with the Democrats to solve America’s problems instead of making stuff up.
