No member of Congress has made wilder claims or used more fiery language to describe health reform than Foxx. She has practically invited, if not incited, her followers to respond fearfully and violently to health reform legislation.
Now, according to the Winston-Salem Journal, she is condemning threats of violence.
But she was apparently not worried about such threats when she made this statement on the floor of the House:
I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.
And I doubt she was worried about provoking violence when she made this statement about a Republican health bill:
It will make sure we bring down the cost of health care for all Americans and that ensures affordable access to all Americans and is pro-life because it will not put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government.
It seems perfectly reasonable that people would respond violently to a bill that encourages terrorism and murder. Instead of denouncing violence after the fact, perhaps Foxx could refrain from encouraging paranoia and fear in the first place.
