GOP Rep Foxx: Health Care Reform Scarier Than ‘Any Terrorist’

November 2, 2009

(ChattahBox)—As our nation nears closer to the possibility of finally achieving the opportunity for Americans to obtain good quality and affordable health care, many conservative Republicans are reverting to scare tactics to denounce the Democrats’ health care reform bills. And the wacky right-wing lawmaker, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has jumped on board the loony tunes express, asserting that health care reform poses a greater threat to our country than terrorism.

Rep. Foxx is known for her extreme right-wing rhetoric. She recently asserted that health care reform would “put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government.” The controversial lawmaker once called the hate-fueled murder of Matthew Shepard a “hoax.”

And let’s not forget Foxx’s use of the racially charged term “tar baby” on the House floor last spring.

This morning the lawmaker from North Carolina, let loose with her latest insanity:

FOXX: I believe that the greatest fear that we all should have to our freedom comes from this room — this very room — and what may happen later this week in terms of a tax increase bill masquerading as a health care bill. I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.

    Am I the one who’s noticed that, with one single exception (the National Chairman of the GOP), everyone opposed to health care reform is (1) wealthy and (2) White?

    I can hear it now, as the Republicans sit in their smoke-filled room (Cuban cigar, smuggled for them by the CIA, no doubt), as Orrin Hatch says things like, “We don’t want them Darkies to get health care, no sirree Bob! Why, we might actually have to pay some taxes iffen them people get to see a doctah!”

    The Republican Party: As forward-thinking and patriotic as John Wilkes Booth!
