The Biggest Comeback in the History of the House

We won. And our victory last night was the biggest comeback in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives.

In 2010, we lost by 18 points. In 2012, last night, we won by 25 points, 62.5% to 37.5%. That’s a 43-point swing, back to victory.

No one has ever done that before. We made history.

Our polling shows that we won every county, every municipality, every race, every age group, every language group and each gender. We won it all.

So to every voter, thank you.

To the 100,000 supporters who contributed this campaign, whether it was a dollar or $5,000, thank you.

To the volunteers who made more than a quarter of a million live phone calls to get out our vote, thank you.

To our brilliant canvassing staff of fifty, who have knocked on doors every single day since March, thank you.

To the thousands of people who wrote to us to give your advice or express your support, or forwarded our e-mails to your friends, or followed our campaign on Facebook, thank you.

To everyone who marches behind the standards of justice, equality and peace, thank you.

If you helped in any way, large or small, then you can savor this sweet moment. You made it happen.

Congratulations to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, Sherrod Brown and Tammy Duckworth. Goodbye, Allen West.

I have a feeling that this won’t be the only time that we make history. In fact, if we all work together this way, you can count on it.

Courage,

Alan Grayson

I think it is time to stop being polite to the Repugnant party. I believe in free speech, but we can "free speech" them back instead of ignoring it.
I think the American people need to know we fought have fought 3 major wars that I can think of to rid ourselves of people who allowed themselves to be governed by the kind of thinking that now rules the republican party.
The first was the American Revolution to rid ourselves of the British aristrocracy and corporations that were trying to extract our resources.
Second was the civil war to rid of the rampant racism on the rise today.
Third world war 2 to stop fascism.

Good luck with the rest of the gargoyles in the House Republican caucus. Make them sweat, and may they all get a nervous tic at the mention of your name.

105. The SIMPLE answer to the bogus debt crisis: Return to the tax rates of the Greatest Generation!

They built the strongest America we have ever known. Here are the details:

#1 Social Security is entirely separate from the deficit, there is no need to cut it.

#2 - YOU CAN NOT HAVE A REAL TAX CUT WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING A DEFICIT! All you are doing is borrowing money, at interest, that we will all have to pay back later. Really, it is a tax deferral.

#3 - WE CAN ELIMINATE THE DEBT AND DEFICIT BY RETURNING TO THE GREATEST GENERATIONS TAX RATE ON THE ULTRA RICH!

According to the President, eliminating the Bush tax cut (4% increase) will raise 700 billion in revenues in 10 years (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_162-7032813.html).

Which means a 40% increase on the top tax rate to a rate similar to the pre-Reagan rate of 79.6% would yield 7 trillion in 10 years.

A 58% increase to 94% (the rate the Gretest Generation thought was best) would yield over 10 trillion dollars over the next 10 years.

So our deficit of 1.3 trillion would be gone in a little over a year and our DEBT would be gone in under 10 years (as we pay it down).

Simple! Done and done - and we haven't increased taxes on investment income to pre-Clinton levels yet!

2010 Y1: 14T - 3T (2T normal revenues plus additional 1T from tax on ultra-rich) = 11T debt
2011 Y2: 11T(debt) + 1T(deficit) - 3T = 9T debt
2012 Y3: 9T(debt) + 600B(deficit) - 3T = 6.6T debt
2013 Y4: 6.6T(debt) + 700T(deficit) - 3T = 4.3T debt
2014 Y4: 4.3T(debt) + 800T(deficit) - 3T = 2.1T debt
2015 Y5: 2.1T(debt) + 800T(deficit) - 3T = .1T debt
2016 Y6: .1T(debt) + 900T(deficit) - 3T = +2 Trillion SURPLUS!!!


OK, OK, better have the CBO check my numbers,....!


PS - Congrats! And glad to see my money well spent!

156. So Happy to have you back

I live in Oregon but we supported your campaign because you are an honest man with integrity who calls BS when he sees it and is not afraid of combating it in an intelligent but strong manner. It is a good day. Allen will figure out he didn't win after awhile,

I was so happy with your win, my Senator Sherrod Brown's, and Obama's! Was quite a night. Unfortunately we sent back a Republican to sit in the house with you, Bill Johnson, but hopefully in 2014 that will be changed. Keep up your good work, I loved your 2 years and how you expressed progressive views on the floor of the House.

I suppose the president has to be stoicly reserved with anything he says - of course, he's really NOT bound to do so, but that's the way it is. What WE ( I am amongst those who called and donated on your campaign's behalf) put our efforts on the line for was your bold and brash voice against the hypocrisy that permeates Washington politics. I just KNOW you're gonna have me on the edge of my chair the first time you take to the floor of Congress. THAT will be the crowning moment for me. Congratulations - thank you immensely - and give 'em hell!

And up here in northern New England, the Democratic tide returned a Democrat to the House. So the NH delegation is, interestingly, 100% women, 3/4 Democrats (and, sadly 1/4 tea party, but we get to change that in a few years).

in the time you were away. You showed them how. You showed them it is about principle, not about whether you can hold onto your seat. No more playing it safe. These Republicans are really on a mission. If every Democrat will fight half as hard as Alan Grayson, we will turn back the plutocrats.

I don't know which makes me happier, getting Alan back or all the tough ladies that are coming to town. I'm stoked both ways.
