Press Release from the Democratic Party of Tennessee, May 5, 2014:
Campfield Holocaust Remarks “Outrageous, Pathetic, Hateful”
Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Roy Herron today issued this statement in response to Senator Stacey Campfield’s blogging 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”:
“Senator Campfield’s blog post this morning is just the latest example of Tea Party Republican extremism. To compare attempts to save American lives through access to healthcare with Nazis killing European Jews is outrageous, pathetic, and hateful.
“Sen. Campfield and other Tea Party Republicans ought to look at the 5,000 Tennesseans who will die within the next 3 years because Tea Party Republicans refused to take the 100% federal funding to expand Medicaid and have denied working Tennesseans access to healthcare.”
