"Apologize? I'm not the one who should be apologizing. They should apologize to America.” -- Rep. Alan Grayson on "foot-dragging, knuckle-dragging Neanderthals."
Democratic Representative Alan Grayson of Florida, who has come under fire from Republicans for suggesting on the House floor Tuesday night that "Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick," said in an interview with CBSNews.com Wednesday that the response to his comments has been "overwhelmingly positive."
"People are calling us from all over the country to congratulate us for telling the truth," he said. "People are happy to see a Democrat with guts."
