Congressman: Pelosi should go after Grayson for remark

A Republican congressman on Thursday urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to organize a vote to reprimand Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) in a manner similar to the action taken against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.)

Grayson caused controversy on the House floor Tuesday afternoon when he said that "the Republican healthcare plan is this: Die quickly."

Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) took to Twitter to call on Pelosi to officially rebuke Grayson:

Will Pelosi hold vote to reprimand #Grayson? http://bit.ly/4pGUWN Or was JWilson reprimand just partisan politics after all? #tcot

A couple of weeks ago, the House voted to condemn Wilson after he shouted, "You lie!" at President Barack Obama during his speech to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 9.

Several House Republicans chastised Grayson on the House floor after his comment.
