Forget about a Grayson resolution

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
As far as Alan "Die Quickly" Grayson goes, don't expect that resolution of disapproval to hit the floor.

Yesterday Rep. Tom Price, the leader of the House conservative caucus, prepared a resolution demanding that Grasyon apologize to the House. The resolution was never formally taken up by the House, and there was the possibility that Price would try and bring it up today on the floor.

He will not, and here's why, according to an e-mail from his spokesman, Brendan Buck:

"No resolution will be introduced today. Mr. Grayson's actions on the floor were an embarrassment to this Congress and warrant an apology both to his colleagues and, more importantly, to the people of his district who he insulted on the House floor. It is the job of the Speaker to ensure the House runs with proper decorum, and we would hope that she would not tolerate such behavior. As Mr. Grayson has shown no remorse for his antics, we have called on the Speaker to take the appropriate action to resolve this matter. Any future decision on a resolution will rest on the ability of the Speaker to control her members."
