U.S. Rep. Allan Grayson, D-Fla., visited the convention body on day two. He stressed that he believes there is a serious misperception about federal employees among the public and in the media. He said that government employees work hard, are paid less and need to fight back against this misunderstanding. He mentioned legislation he plans to introduce, which he called the "Seniors Have Eyes, Ears and Teeth Act." It would provide coverage under Medicare for glasses, hearing aids and dental work.
