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.) similar to action taken against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.)

Grayson caused controversy on the House floor yesterday afternoon when he said "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 Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) after he shouted "you lie!" at President Barack Obama during his speech to a joint session of Congress on September 9.

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