Alan Grayson on the GOP Health Care Plan: "Don't Get Sick! And if You Do Get Sick, Die Quickly!"'



chin gentleman is recognized for five minutes thank you madam chairman you may recall that a few weeks ago President Obama came to this chamber and he addressed the chamber on health care before a joint session of the House and the Senate during that session I was privileged to be here and I saw my colleagues on the far side of the aisle the Republicans waving pieces of paper during his speech and I was wondering what they were I couldn't imagine it almost seemed like they wanted President Obama's autograph I just didn't get it I heard from one of my colleagues that this is what they called the Republican health care plan I went over after the speech is over I picked up a copy that was lying down on the Republican side and it turns out that the Republicans health care plan was a blank piece of paper I inquired further trying to find out exactly what the Republicans health care plan is and it's my duty and pride tonight to be able to announce exactly what the Republicans plan to do for health care in America it's this very simply it's a very simple plan here it is the Republicans health care plan for America don't get sick that's right don't get sick if you have insurance don't get sick if you don't have insurance don't get sick if you're sick don't get sick just don't get sick that's what the Republicans have in mind for you America that's the Republicans health care plan but I think that the Republicans understand that that plan isn't always going to work it's not a foolproof plan so the Republicans have a back-up plan in case you do get sick if you get sick in America this is what the Republicans want you to do 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 now the Democrats have a different plan the Democrats say that if you have health insurance we're going to make it better if you don't have health insurance we're going to provide it to you if you can't afford health insurance then we'll help you to afford health insurance so America gets decide do you want the Democratic plan or do you want the Republican plan remember the Republican plan don't get sick and if you do get sick die quickly thank you very much madam Speaker

  1. 10 years later Republicans have the same plan.

  2. Quote starts at 1:10

  3. The simple health plan is to take care of your health. If you get sick, go to a clinic and pay for the treatment. If you don't have enough funds, ask for help on gofundme.com
    The point is to have an emergency fund, which is what I'm working on.

  4. He couldn't be more correct, even a decade after he said this.

  5. Can someone tell me how I can get in contact with Mr. Grayson now (Oct 2018). Thanks…I appreciate it very much. m

  6. We need to help him win his Florida House Dem Primary on Aug. 28th. Email [email protected] & he'll hook you right up.

  7. Nine years later and a little boy in Britain is being suffocated to death, under force by government mandate, because of socialized medicine.

  8. This gets me every time.

  9. "Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
    To cease upon the midnight with no pain,…"–Keats, "Ode to a Nightingale"

  10. Alan Grayson is the greatest congressman that Florida ever had. That's why his colleagues voted for Patrick Murphy for Senate and lost the seat to Marco Rubio

  11. Grayson kicks ass…

  12. It's eight years later almost to the *day*, September 26, and "president" Trump is still trying to enact this plan.
    Alan Grayson was spot on with this presentation. Republicans criticized him for being insulting but they spent EIGHT ENTIRE FUCKING YEARS proving him right.

  13. It's nice to see a Democrat who calls Republicans out for who they really are and what they really stand for. I'm tired of Eeyore Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi who are afraid that voters won't like them if they are "mean" to the Republicans. Democrats need to play the game just as dirty as Republicans if they ever want to win again.

  14. This is from 2009, been 18 years? He is still correct! But Republican voters still vote for these 'Republicans in name only' because they so easily believe their lies and vote for them anyway!

  15. These days, I look back at this video living in Germany my whole life, and wonder how come it is possible that a party that is so openly wagibg war on its citizens via somethibng they dare to call a "Health Care" plan gets more than 1% of the popular vote.

  16. Still relevant.

  17. you know what's sad about this video no matter how old video gets if the republicans have power they try killing your ass off so this video is right on the money every year lol.

  18. And now its nearly 8 years later, and what little good Obama care did is up for grabs in Congress. Health care was then and is today a RIGHT, not a privilege.

  19. The more things change, the more they stay the same

  20. you could have stopped this

  21. I wonder if the Congressman regrets his hateful rhetoric in light of the Scalise shooting.

  22. I wish he won the nomination for senate to replace Marco Rubio.

  23. Brilliant

  24. this is as accurate now as ever.

  25. "very simply its a very simple plan" lool

  26. Fast Forward 2017. House GOP terrorists repealed and replaced Obamacare that just left 24 million out! Once again proving Grayson right. If you vote Republican you WILL die quicker!!

  27. Turns out Americans are okay with the Republican plan.

    Fucking idiots.

  28. Still accurate to this day…
