Quote of the Day
"Adolf Hitler issued six million end of life orders--he called his program the final solution. I kind of wonder what we're going to call ours."
Spokeman for Patients First, on Obama's health care reform proposal.
Believing government health insurance competing with the private insurance industry is wrong is one thing. Making comparisons to Hitler is batshit insane. The holocaust and policy proposals to offer health insurance to to 47 million uninsured Americans aren't the same thing. These people need to stop watching Fox News.
Here is the video of the nonsense. The quote comes at 2:20 in the video. The Patients First spokesman also compares America's Affordable Health Choices Act to the genocides committed by Stalin and Pol Pott. These anti-health care reform advocates are scary.
Patients First is an astroturf subsidiary of Americans for Prosperity. The two main backers of AFP are millionaire Art Pope and billionaire David Koch. The latter is the 19th richest man in the world.
Patients First is not a grassroots organization started by ordinary citizens. None of the protesters, at townhall meetings, are as wealthy as Koch or Pope.
Rachel Maddow has a good piece on Americans for Prosperity's bogus grassroots campaigns.
