Socialist curmudgeon, Bernie Sanders, kicked the hyperbole into overdrive declaring the GOP health care bill would be worse than the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
Despite admitting moments earlier that “nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage,” Sanders nonetheless made the prediction.
“If 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House [GOP] bill would do, up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die,” he fretted. “That is nine times more than the tragic losses of we suffered on 9/11, every single year.”
Here is footage of Bernie’s panic prediction …
Whoops. Wrong clip. Let’s try that again.
Here is Bernie telling supporters that the health care bill is worse than 9/11.
Via the Free Beacon:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Sunday attacked the Republican health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, arguing it would kill more Americans each year than the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
“Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,” Sanders said at a rally in Morgantown, W.Va. “But what experts at the Harvard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House bill would do, up to, up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die.”
Sanders then compared the Republican health care plan to the Sept. 11 terror attacks carried out by al Qaeda that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
Bear in mind, this is a socialist claiming that a revised health care system is going to cause massive amounts of death and hysteria.
The same socialist mindset and platform which has led a country like Venezuela to force its own people to ration toothpaste. Socialism kills people.
But yeah, fixing Obamacare, now that’s bad. Terrorism-level bad.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen liberals compare things they don’t agree with to the horrific events that occurred on 9/11. They make such comparisons because they’re simple-minded people.
To paraphrase the Geico commercials: If you’re liberals, you compare Republicans to terrorists. It’s what you do.
Meanwhile, the Republicans will continue trying to fix the Obamacare mess – the one that actually increased mortality rates while it was policy.
The chart above translates to 11,000 excess annual U.S. adult deaths relative to the pre-Obamacare trends.
