Alan Grayson hasn't looked back since Election Day. He's not afraid to say what it takes to get the message across and fight back against Republican lies and misinformation.
Now, one year from today, Alan Grayson is up for reelection and Republicans have put a giant target on his back. It's pretty straight forward why -- they're afraid of him. They're going to pull out all the stops to defeat him. We can't let that happen.
So today, DFA members are joining with others across the progressive movement for a one-day contribution "money bomb" in support of Alan Grayson. If we raise $400,000 today, we'll send chills down the spine of every single right-wing blowhard around the county.

So why DO the Republicans hate Grayson so much?
Well, Republicans spent the whole summer yelling lies about "Death Panels" and how President Obama was going to pull the plug on grandma. And all August, Democrats in Congress went from town hall to town hall playing defense and trying to figure out what hit them. Alan Grayson had enough. There is no Republican plan on healthcare. They would rather do nothing, than fix it. Recognizing that over 42,000 Americans a year die because they don't have health insurance under our current system, Representative Grayson decided it was time to go on the attack and put the Republicans on defense.
"The Republican's healthcare plan:
One sentence and Rep. Grayson reclaimed the debate. Everyone was talking about it. How many Americans don't have insurance? How many Americans die each year because of it? What actually IS the Republican plan?

Republicans aren't used to Democrats attacking back, but they immediately went on the war path. They demanded Grayson apologize. He was already a step ahead of them.
Rep. Grayson took to the floor of Congress and apologized to the dead. To every American who had died while Republicans held up the healthcare debate and Congress waited to enact reform. Suddenly, it's the Republicans who didn't know what hit them. First a Democrat stands up and then he won't shut up and sit down when Republicans yell at him? You can imagine their surprise.
Thanks to Alan Grayson, for the first time all summer, Republicans were finally playing defense.
But that won't last forever. Congressional Quarterly recently downgraded Rep. Grayson's reelection race from a "toss-up" to "leans Republican." That's why we need to have Grayson's back. If we raise $400,000 in one day, we'll send a message to Republicans nationwide they won't miss.
