According to Politico:
Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) had a coffin placed “near his home,” a spokesman said Wednesday evening.
This came after Rep. Tom Perriello’s (D-Va.) brother’s gas lines were cut, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) received death threats and Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) received a message saying snipers were being deployed to kill children of those who voted for health care overhaul.
Well, you basically thwarted the will of the people who elected you to office. What did you expect? Fking candy and flowers? Your constituents are PISSED OFF! You helped make them that way! However this was not the most disturbing part of the article. It goes on to quote Rep. Callahan's spokesman Jim Hubbard:
“We can disagree on important issues facing our country without resorting to this kind of thing. Russ Carnahan isn’t going to shy away from the importance of reform when 45,000 fellow Americans died last year due to a lack of health insurance.”
Um, Jim - I'm not sure (unless you are somehow able to communicate with the dead) you are in any way qualified to judge if a person DID or DID NOT die from lack of health care. I'll go out on a limb and say they died from disease, injury and violence - with the occasional "natural cause" tossed in.
Oh yeah, people also died from abortion. And from the ineptitude Obama displayed in providing the brave men and women of our Armed Forces what they needed for successful - and minimal loss - operations. But you won't be mentioning that, will you Jimbo?
I am willing to bet any number of people who will die in future years if this abhorrent health care plan is implemented will pale with the 45,000 you quoted.
Oh, yeah - I just remembered. You DO speak to the dead. Your boss. That is his career is dead - after the next election.
