Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is taking some heat for his bill to ban bonuses and excessive compensation for any employee at any firm benefiting from government bailout dollars. In an interview Tuesday on the Fox Business Network, Grayson was grilled by a fired-up Neil Cavuto, who called the congressman "Sweden in a suit"and said "the Constitution never gave you the damn authority of telling anyone what they should make."
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Grayson blows off the criticism.
"A stuck pig squeals loudly," the congressman says. "I'm going after some of the biggest crooks in the country and they're fighting back through people like Neil Cavuto."
Grayson's bill, the Pay for Performance Act, passed the House yesterday. He argued in an op-ed on the Huffington Post Wednesday that the bill would put an end to "theft" on Wall Street, "which is apparently the only place in the world where you can steal from the taxpayers and then bill them for services rendered."
Alan Grayson is OK in my book and makes me glad I'm a Democrat. He is fighting for the sheeple and is doing the work that needs to be done in the accountability department, yet the word is being passed around that he won't be re-elected. Why is this? Ask Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul, or anybody that dares to show truth to power.
