[Tennessee] State Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) caused a stir Monday morning when he wrote on his personal blog that "Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for 'train rides' for Jews in the 40s."
Campfield doubled down in a later interview with the AP, stating that "Jewish people should be the first to stand up against Obamacare," because, "when you have government deciding who gets health insurance and who doesn't... they're really deciding who lives and who dies," just like Nazis the did.
Things were better back when insurance companies got to decide who lived and died. I mean, remember rescission? We were a free people then. Now we are slaves to a law that make it impossible for private insurance companies to cancel the health insurance policies of Americans who make the mistake of getting sick. Thanks, Obama.
The death rate in Massachusetts dropped significantly after it adopted mandatory health care coverage in 2006, a study released Monday found, offering evidence that the country’s first experiment with universal coverage—and the model for crucial parts of President Obama’s health care law—has saved lives, health economists say. The study tallied deaths in Massachusetts from 2001 to 2010 and found that the mortality rate—the number of deaths per 100,000 people—fell by about 3 percent in the four years after the law went into effect. The decline was steepest in counties with the highest proportions of poor and previously uninsured people. In contrast, the mortality rate in a control group of counties similar to Massachusetts in other states was largely unchanged. A national 3 percent decline in mortality among adults under 65 would mean about 17,000 fewer deaths a year.
Obamacare: It's the Holocaust of saving lives.
