How Civil – Henry Waxman Accused Republicans of Murder


Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) didn’t like an amendment to one of his energy bills that Republicans passed with bipartisan support. So he resorted to the same old tired rhetoric we’ve come to expect from the left wing. He accused the Republicans of murder.

Continuing his response, Waxman upped the ante, saying Republicans are “getting away — literally — with murder” because of their record on the environment.

“Some of these pollutants do harm, and they may even lead to fatalities,” Waxman said.

No doubt Waxman didn’t mention the public health effects of high unemployment caused by EPA regulations. Or the ill-effects suffered by asthmatics after the EPA meddled with their inhalers.
