"I call upon the Democratic members of the House, I call upon the Republican members of the House, I call upon all of us to do our jobs for the sake of America, for the sake of those dying people and their families," Grayson said.
"I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven't voted sooner to end this holocaust in America," he said.
Yesterday, he said, "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."
A Republican representative had drafted a resolution to condemn the remarks, but decided not to introduce it, saying he'd give Grayson the chance to apologize first.
