Grayson (D-FL) Does a roll call of estimated number of Americans who will DIE in next year due to no Healthcare Insurance. Roll call for all Republican members of Congress!

There are 3 videos in this stream - links in video to next in series.

AAh let the attacks begin. One UT post read as follows:

Of course, the Urban Institute is not ever wrong,and totally unbiased right? What distorted reasoning. Did this guy even go to college? He's making idiotic and false claims - what absurd logic even for this moron.

1. Holy Crap!
Can we get some bodyguards for Grayson???

BTW, I got a new pet parrot this past Sunday. It's a very rare breed of parrot that's native to Madagascar. It's plumage is an overall dary gray, so I decided to call the Bird Graysun. This is a nod to Alan Grayson being a rare individual as well as the bird being a ray of sunshine in it's own right. And, yes, Graysun's a good bird!

4. Would love to see the actual percent uninsured
I suspect that many of these republicans are representing districts that have above average numbers of uninsured people. It is sad how people will often fight against their own self-interest.

5. A suggestion.
Every morning when Congress is in session, when each member goes to his desk, he should be greeted with a printed list of all the uninsured who died the previous day...with addresses and phone numbers of survivors. No business will be done until each and every one of the next of kin is contacted personally by that Congresscritter on speaker phone.
Eventually, they'll be bound to experience some semblance of shame.

all the Republicans you know especially in NJ and Virginia. Yeah the races are over but it's important to get across what they have voted for. We have to work for human survival to keep them out of office, even when Democrats disappoint their overall intention is not that of the GOP to destroy the American people. That's what is so tremendous about Grayson he brings that into sharp focus.

9. These are estimates. The outrage shows just how horrifying the
estimates are. Estimates --
. . . .
Etymology: Latin aestimatus, past participle of aestimare to value, estimate
Date: circa 1532
1 archaic a : esteem b : appraise
2 a : to judge tentatively or approximately the value, worth, or significance of b : to determine roughly the size, extent, or nature of c : to produce a statement of the approximate cost of
3 : judge, conclude
estimative \-ˌmā-tiv\ adjective
synonyms estimate, appraise, evaluate, value, rate, assess mean to judge something with respect to its worth or significance. estimate implies a judgment, considered or casual, that precedes or takes the place of actual measuring or counting or testing out <estimated the crowd at two hundred>. appraise commonly implies the fixing by an expert of the monetary worth of a thing, but it may be used of any critical judgment <having their house appraised>. evaluate suggests an attempt to determine relative or intrinsic worth in terms other than monetary <evaluate a student's work>. value equals appraise but without implying expertness of judgment <a watercolor valued by the donor at $500>. rate adds to estimate the notion of placing a thing according to a scale of values <a highly rated restaurant>. assess implies a critical appraisal for the purpose of understanding or interpreting, or as a guide in taking action <officials are trying to assess the damage>.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/estimate

Actual numbers could be a little more, a little less. But these are the numbers based on statistics derived from history, from past experience. If the Freeper from Utah decides to build a house or repair his care, he will request an estimate and rely on it. We use estimates every day of our lives. In fact, every time we take a step, we estimate how far we are from the nearest object.

These numbers are shocking.
