Rep. Foxx: Health Care Bill A Greater Threat Than Any Terrorist In The World
Over the past year, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has earned a reputation for making outrageous statements on the floor of the House. In late July, for example, Foxx suggested that the Democrats' health care plans would "put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government." Therefore, it may not come a surprise that Foxx has outdone herself yet again.
During a floor speech today, Foxx bluntly declared that the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which House Democrats unveiled last week, is a greater threat than any terrorist in the world:
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.
In addition to her health care fear-mongering, Foxx's greatest hits include pronouncing the brutal, hate-driven murder of Matthew Shepard a "hoax" and implying that President Obama should agree with Thomas Sowell's criticism because he's also "an African-American."
