By JAVIER MANJARRESCongressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) just posted the transcript of his MSNBC appearance last week where he joined his fellow liberal Democrat Reverend Al Sharpton to smack around Ryan Budget plan.
Grayson says that the proposed budget is bad, “even for white guys,” as opposed to only being bad for black, brown, or other non-white ‘guys.’ Not quite sure what Grayson is trying to say, so I will leave it up to you to come to your own conclusions.
Alan: Well, the Ryan Budget should have been relegated a long time ago to the septic tank of history. But here it is again. It’s bad [for women], for seniors, it’s bad for children, and it’s bad for everyone, even white guys. You wonder why they keep bringing it back over and over again. It raises the debt by $6 trillion — that’s $20,000 for every man, women, and child in this country — for the sake of giving a $400,000 tax break to millionaires. The Republicans are literally trying to bribe millionaires with their own money….
But Grayson wasn’t finished ranting about the those mean Republicans.

Alan: I think that it shows that the public has a much better grip on reality than the Republican Party does. Look at state after state where the Republicans have been in charge. They have cut government spending in those states. They have laid off firefighters, they’ve laid off teachers, they’ve laid off police officers, they’ve laid off all sorts of public servants, and destroyed those jobs. In those states like mine, like in Florida, unemployment has remained high.
Stop the presses! Grayson is saying that Florida’s unemployment numbers have remained high. But isn’t Florida’s unemployment rate,which happens to be under the watch of Republican Governor Rick Scott, below the national average? Yes sir, it is.
Perhaps Grayson missed this story in the Tampa Bay Times that outlined the fact that Florida added 80,500 more jobs in 2012 than what was previously estimated, bringing the year end total of jobs added to 134,400. Ouch.
