The left’s health care rhetoric is unhinged - The Boston Globe:
"REMEMBER HOW liberal politicians promised to tone down the partisan rhetoric after a heavily armed Bernie Sanders fan opened fire on GOP lawmakers taking batting practice on June 14? Remember how they signed on to a “pledge of civility”?
You don’t remember?
They don’t either.
For no sooner had Senate Republicans released their proposed health insurance bill last week than Democrats were once again dialing the hate speech up to 11.
Before Representative Steve Scalise was even out of intensive care, Democrats were calling his party and its legislation not just “heartless” and “evil,” but downright homicidal. 

  • Sanders, in a tweet he later deleted, charged Republicans with “trying to pass a bill that could kill up to 27,000” in order to “give tax cuts to the wealthy.” 
  • Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, in her usual caustic style, said the legislation amounts to “blood money” and that “people will die” if it is enacted. 
  • Hillary Clinton added to the slander: “If Republicans pass this bill, they’re the death party.”
