Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson (FL) escalated his battle with Republicans over comments he made Tuesday on the House floor.

Rep. Grayson said that the GOP's health care plan is for people to not get sick, and if they do, then to "die quickly."

Grayson has refused to apologize for his comments (although he took to the House floor to apologize to the dead who have passed for lacking health insurance), and he again blasted Republicans tonight on CNN's "The Situation Room" for blocking health care reform.

Grayson insisted that it's the GOP who needs to apologize to America, and he called Republicans "knuckle-dragging neanderthals."
