Controversial -- congressman Alan Grayson as we've been talking about this morning Grayson launching this attack on lawmakers Republican lawmakers saying quote.
Why would you want to put people in charge of government referring to the GOP who just don't want to do it I mean you would not expect to see al-Qaeda members.
Georgia congressman Tom price chair of the Republican.
-- -- reaction by the way were in contact where grace's office earlier today.
We have yet to get a response or invitation stands for him to join us here on America's Newsroom your reaction congressman price to that.
-- -- well it's tough to take DiFelice seriously who makes comments like that and I think that's what gives the American people -- pause about what's happening in Washington.
But hey if I were a member of a party that that wouldn't produce a budget or couldn't produce a budget and -- lost millions of jobs over the last year and puts in place a health care program that the American people don't want and is moving forward on -- Economic reform bill that the American people don't want I guess I'd want to change the subject to sell out Batman roller I don't know I.
Hopefully he'll come on explain or clarify this I don't know what is saying that what what was is that Republicans want to destroy government.
Was he -- Republicans don't want to be in control of government.
How did you -- right.
It you just don't know -- this is the fellow who said on the floor of the house that the Republican plan for health care -- to allow the American people to die.
When -- -- position we put forward a positive solution with that had patient centered solutions for health care and didn't put the government in charge so.
We've got all sorts of wonderful positive solutions to all of the challenges that we face the difference between our solutions and there's is that we embrace fundamental American principle they put the government in charge and again if if if that if I remember that party I want to change the subject do you wonder why people pop off on matters were 3000 innocent people work -- What we'll ask him and I had to did you know him very well.
I don't know I'm -- to see him in the hallway and that's that.
And you remember what he said on the floor of the house or in health care debate.
Jack and -- but I think it just wanted to die and I quickly do you remember that there.
And so that's why this match because -- a position we worked diligently to put forward positive solutions which is what we've been doing.
The American people want us to get to work in Washington together on positive solutions in the kind of comments that that he made.
Just make it so that that becomes much more difficult it is is a distraction more than anything I'm not I do want to know from you how you evaluate all these primaries we've been watching now.
We just mentioned this Republican out of -- winning and you can interpret that -- -- many different ways.
Just -- the election in Pennsylvania but as you evaluate things right now some five and a half months out.
I mean what where do we stand how strong a position are Republicans who -- What happened in Pennsylvania and Jack Murtha is -- district does that give people like you pause and say hang on here we've got a lot of work to do is you know.
Well we do have a lot of work to do but I think what the American people want are checks and balances in Washington.
Right now they see runaway government to the left and that's not what they like and so what what I believe will happen this November.
Is the American people saying the way to get checks and balances back in Washington is to put Republicans back in charge in the House of Representatives.
I'm very optimistic and confident about the quality of the candidates that we're feeling across this land.
And what I -- from district to district to district not just in in the southeast but all across the country.
We see the American people who are concerned about the reach of the federal government or fearful of their government now would never before have we ever heard that.
And I believe they're going to be doing what happened in Hawaii over the weekend which is to put that check and balance Republicans in charge Tom price Republican at a Georgia -- Atlanta today sir thank you for your time and again -- invitation stands for Alan Grayson.
