NH Republican: Obamacare Is As Destructive As Slavery (VIDEO)
File this one in the WTF file.
Via Granite State Progress Press Release:
NH Congressional candidate and former NH Speaker Bill O’Brien compared the Affordable Care Act expanding health coverage to the Fugitive Slave Act condoning human slavery during a Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity event in Concord, New Hampshire on August 1, 2013.
Speaking at the foot of a memorial statue honoring abolitionist John Parker Hale, one of only four US Senators in 1850 to vote against the Fugitive Slave Act, O’Brien – a Republican who is planning on running against incumbent Rep. Annie Kuster - said;
“And what is Obamacare? It is a law as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 that allowed slave owners to come to New Hampshire and seize African-Americans and use the federal courts to take them back to federal… to slave states.”
Granite State Progress Executive Director Zandra Rice Hawkins said in a statement,
“Consumer health advocates are looking for ways to get more people covered, but Americans for Prosperity and politicians like Bill O’Brien are trying to make health access as scary and burdensome as possible. Their goal is to discourage people from getting covered because they want to use health reform as a political wedge issue in the next election. They are willing to come between you and your doctor to meet that goal.”
