I'm In. Are You?
Edited on Mon Jul-11-11 10:32 PM by Alan Grayson
Source: Alan Grayson

Im in. Im running for Congress.

Im running because I promised Charlaina and Rick that I would. Charlaina called me a few weeks ago, from the hospital. She told me that her husband, Rick, was suffering from multiple organ failure lungs, kidneys and liver.

Rick was 56 years old. Thats three years older than me.

Rick was a veteran. But the Veterans Administration wasnt covering his hospital bills.


Read more: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/07/11/993649/-Im-In-Are-You?via=blog_466485



Rick had had a bad liver since he was 30, when he contracted hepatitis. No insurance company would go near him.

Every day Rick survived, his family owed several thousand dollars more to hospitals and doctors. And they had no way to pay it.

I told Charlaina how sorry I was. And I told her that I wasnt in Congress anymore, so I wasnt sure how I could help.

She said: You can run again.

You are the only person who ever cared about people like us. Rick wants people in Congress who cant be bought and sold. Rick wants you to run again.

A dying man wants me to run for Congress. What exactly could I say?

I promised that I would run.

Rick died on June 30, 2011, at 5:55 p.m.

Im keeping my promise. Im in.

For the four million people in Florida who cant see a doctor when they are sick, and the fifty million nationwide, Im in.

For the 70% of all homeowners in Orlando who owe more than they own on their home, and the 25% nationwide who are underwater, and feel like they are drowning, Im in.

For the six million Americans who havent worked in six months and are seeing their benefits running out, for the eight million more who are unemployed, and for the eight million on top of that who can find only part-time work, Im in.

For the millions of parents who have absolutely no idea how to pay for a college education for their children, Im in.

And for everyone who is appalled by the prospect that we may cut Social Security and Medicare benefits as we spend more than $150 billion a year on three unnecessary wars and almost $100 billion a year on the Bush tax cuts for the rich, Im in.

Im in. And Im going to need your help. Are you in?

Go here to contribute to my campaign: https://secure.mydccc.org/o/30019/t/270/shop/custom.jsp?donate_page_KEY=243

53. When we lost Wiener, we lost our last asshole.
I'll be glad when this asshole is back in Congress.

Hopefully Obama will have coattails and the new voters who voted for him will return and look past Obama's name.

79. I'd argue that, regarding Weiner, we lost not our last asshole...
Edited on Mon Jul-11-11 11:48 PM by GReedDiamond
...but we lost a dick. Although Weiner could be an asshole if he wanted to.

And that's missed...

...in any case, I believe that Grayson has the balls to make a difference.

Without necessarily being an asshole.

Edited for punctuation.

108. Weiner had balls too, we know that for sure, and I hope he
runs again. He never should have quit.

And I am glad Alan Grayson is running too. We need them both.

I'd like Spitzer to run also.

We need an army of people like them.

256. Mr. Grayson has no choice but to disappoint.
That's how the system works. He will rely on money from trial lawyers and other politicos in order to pay for his campaign and that means looking the other way when it comes to their indiscretions.

Listen, if a progressive's entire reason for existence is to tear down the system that corrupts government, (and that means challenging crooked business owners and the unethical lawyers who hide their secrets,) then it would be a simple matter to identify a good progressive candidate. Simply put, he would have a record of taking on good ole boys in Central Florida. Does Grayson have that record? Not so that it's noticeable.

While we're at it: Repeal the USA Patriot Act RIGHT NOW.

I know, I know. You can't work miracles even when you're in Congress, let alone when you're not. But you get my point.

210. More donations from a Floridian, if possible
Edited on Tue Jul-12-11 01:35 PM by lark
We've taken a huge financial hit lately in No. Fl. with the economy totally in the toilet, so don't know for sure if I can donate if things keep going in this same direction. I will work for him, though, wholeheartedly. He's my kind of guy, one that is a true Dem instead of all the traitors who call themselves Dem and promote every right wing fantasy.

I edited to remove a typo.

11. You go Alan!
The Republicans never, ever, ever compromise and never, ever, ever apologize and that's why they've succeeded where our side has failed.

They are wrong, but they are strong and that's what counts for many people. We need to show that we can be just as strong, just as passionate, just as uncompromising on our beliefs.

You may be an asshole, but you're OUR asshole. And we need more like you!!

Although I no longer live in Florida, I will support you by donating to your campaign when I can. We desperately need your voice and others like you who will speak to the truth.

So glad you have made this decision. I only hope that the citizens of Florida finally understand that the Republicans are not their friends. They need to elect people who care about them.

Best of luck...we'll be there for you!

Its the slow erosion of principles that helped them to seize power.

Im afraid too many Americans dont see a similar erosion of principles in our own government, and support party instead.

We need you more than ever. You know that, though.

Right now your presence brings a much needed optimism. It's hard to put into words. Sometimes you know something that someone else knows. Like how what is happening cannot be the real America. Well I think you are a representative of the America that I know. The one that is real. I hope that makes sense.

Once again, thank you.

118. I wish
you really would run. somebody needs to. there needs to at least be a Dem primary challenger for Obama to make him answer for the wars, not fighting for us for healthcare, covering up the Bush era war crimes, renewing the patriot act, going after medical marijuana clinics, filling his administration with wall street insiders, just to name a few of his betrayals - and also just generally acting like a republican.

185. Then go to the linked blog.
Understand that this is a campaign of words and deeds, not personalities and not money. You can't make it so by wishing or by whining.

Nothing is coordinated and there is no money involved. Not one red cent. We have to take the money out of it. We can do it, if we have the will.

Or we can sit on DU day after day and fight with each other.

51. So, Grayson has adopted Obama's 2012 election language: "I'm In."
I wonder if Grayson's going to be using Obama's "Winning The Future" slogan, too? That raises a flag. A big red one, to be precise.

150. Can you imagine what a team of
Sanders/Grayson could/would do for this country? It could be Grayson/Sanders it doesn't matter.

IF (and IMO, if Americans of all stripes worked together, we really could) we put these Gentleman in charge of our country, "what a wonderful place it would be."

Everyone (me too) thinks in negative terms, if we could lose all of that and believe and work hard (because we are losing our country) we could make this a reality. A history-changing moment for the 80% of our countrymen /women whose lives it would change (for the better) in a short time.

We would be doing what "they" fear the most. Giving a voice to the dispossessed of this nation. The odds are astronomically stacked against it, stranger things have happened.

As folks become more aware of the stakes, this kind of thing could well be a shoe-in.

If Grayson does as well as I'm betting, now that he is "in", it isn't much of a stretch for him to make the leap. I would be happy with any order of those two names.

I am dying of thirst, in a vast desert of corrupt, political hacks who serve their corporate masters and
have absolutely no regard for "We The People". You, Mr. Grayson, are a tall drink of water and I applaud
you for making the decision to run for office.

I can't even imagine what it's like, these days, to be an honest, Progressive, decent person in today's corrupt
political environment.

People like you are our only hope.

Alan Grayson is running for Congress.


We still fondly remember the live blog with you last October, Mr. Grayson. I was too late for the real-time session, but hopefully, we will have another opportunity for burning questions.


Hope we will have many more strategy sessions with you at DU. We have a great bunch of minds here.



Give 'em hell, Congressman.

If memory serves, Grayson got less than 40% in his reelect.

That's pretty hard to make up .

A friendlier district... even a statewide run.... might be a better idea.

And there's always... you know.... a national run.

* - Democrat in heart and essence, for all practical purposes


:shrug:

I dunno, these 4 are on my short list at least; I wonder if your list is different... :hi:


But also... there are some really wonderful, progressive people like my rep Barbara Lee, for example, who are true Democrats - even they don't ever get any publicity, for some reason.

92. You were one of the best in the entire Congress, that is a pure fact. You have my full support, but

but....

Frankly, I'm more than slightly disappointed by this announcement, because it means that you're not going to run for president in 2012.

(I assume that the two - running for Congress and running for Pres) are mutually exclusive.)


You and Feingold were my greatest hope as far as 2012 is concerned; so... I'm slightly saddened by this announcement but, as I said, you have my full support, and I'm happy that you are at least running for some kind of office.


anyway, :yourock: - that's for damn sure.

he'd be urging people like him to run for Congress, throughout the country. Right now, there's not a sufficiently organized movement to make serious, well funded, runs in all 435 districts. However, it is possible to have 435 runs, where the idea is to expose the faults of incumbents, pressure them, and lay the groundwork for something bigger and better, in the future.

how hard is it to remove the age restriction from Medicare and let everyone buy in? (sliding fees based upon income)

179. I feel JUST like you do!
Anymore, if I get a call from the DCCC, or some such D organization, I stop them before they get thru two sentences of their script. I tell them I give all the time, but to candidates who deserve it - like Grayson. In fact, I've been slipping him a few bucks all along - even after his defeat last cycle. A citizen like Alan can NOT be set aside so long as he's willing to fight for us.

I too, would LOVE to see Alan (or even some other Dem) make a pass for the 2012 nomination - even if it was obvious that it couldn't succeed. Blind allegiance is as dumb as sticking your head in the sand (or someplace else).

Alan - a full continent away from FLA, I'm ready to back you as much as I can! Thanks for your unselfish services!

192. I'm in.
I run a low cost clinic and don't have insurance myself due to pre-existing conditions. Sure, some here would say that I will be offered coverage in 2014, but of course I'm offered insurance now - I just can't afford $2000 per month with a $10,000 deductible. And that or worse will be offered after 2014.

This year we have had to deal with several patient deaths that happened because they didn't go in and get checked when they first got sick because they couldn't afford it. And when it got so bad they HAD to get it checked, it was too late. The latest patient to die of a preventable and easily treatable disease (if it were caught early enough) was 1 29 year old mother of 3 young children.

I am so pissed off that I swear the next person who mouths off to me about freeloaders, or handouts, or ... will be eating out of a straw for the next 6 months. I am tired of this shit and I'm not going to take racism, or hate anymore.

Fuck the rich, fuck their enables, and fuck the dumb-asses who vote for them.

I'm in too. PS - my "rep" in crazy eyez bachmann. Fuck that bitch.

220. No more wimps . . . We want more Graysons.
Man, listening to these negotiations on the "debt ceiling" makes me want to see more Democrats stand up and yell, "What is this bull$#&@! Mealy mouthed politicians are dragging this country down with their stalling and double talk and grandstanding. Those of us who care about this country need a representative to tell them to either put up or shut up. Work for the middleclass or get out of politics and work for a corporation. You can't do both!"

We need a LOUD voice to be heard over the incessant noise machine. We need to unleash some Grayson on them.

Compromising with Republicans was a mistake. Letting Bush and Cheney go scot free was a mistake. Underestimating the venom of the Tea Party was a mistake.

We can't afford any more mistakes. If you're willing to stand up for what the Democratic Party represents, even if you have to stand against the Obama administration, God speed to you.

224. Alan, we need more like you. Help us get rid of Clarence Thomas NOW!
Edited on Tue Jul-12-11 03:26 PM by cascadiance
If you help lead that fight, then that will be the best way to force a more progressive majority on the Supreme Court when we most need it now. Because Obama then will be forced to pick a decent progressive to keep his trump card to get elected in 2012 with his base. If he doesn't pick it, then it opens up that much more the door for a real progressive like yourself or others you might work on to do a third party challenge if he's exposed as someone that needs one then. I'd hope that he picks a progressive justice to replace Thomas to avoid such a battle, but in a way either way with that decision earlier than later we win. And you're one of the best to lead such a fight to do that and to put that story to the American people about what kind of choice the *people* need!

Maybe if we can get him replaced earlier enough, something can be done about Citizen's United ruling before 2012 election too to help us get you and more like you in congress as well!

234. Wish he would run......
....for Prez too! Obama needs to be in a primary and Grayson would be perfect. I'm happy he's back and happy I'm back after year and 1/2 working in China.

240. Thank you, Alan.
Your country needs you now, and this is the right thing to do! :fistbump:

I don't plan on a lot of political donations this cycle, as there are few worthy candidates.:thumbsdown:

Don't worry, I've got you covered!:thumbsup:

I'll open at $101, for the # of your posts here at DU, and in honor of the Screaming Eagles! :)

244. This is WONDERFUL news!!!
Absolutely I am in, Congressman.

You will also probably be the only one to whom I donate this time. We have too few heroes in America.
