Virginia Foxx: Health care reform worse than terrorism

Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2009 at 11:02 AM

Every time Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina launches one of her wacked-out rants, you think she's topped herself, but here she goes again, reaching ever greater heights of pure goofiness. Foxx has become one of Congress' top entertainers, and by "entertainer" I mean "bizarre granny figure," through her speeches in which she has touted the notions that Pres. Obama wasn't born in the United States.; healthcare reform means senior citizens will be “put to death by their government”; and that “there are no Americans who don’t have health care.” Give Foxx credit, though, she always ups the ante in her nutcase sweepstakes. Now, she's gone onto the House floor to declare that she and everyone in her district are living in fear (which, along with anger, seem to be the only two emotions rightwing extremists like Foxx have left at their disposal), and that health care reform is a more terrible threat to America than "any terrorist right now in any country.” Um, thanks for that valuable insight, Congresswoman; maybe next time remember to take your meds before giving a public speech.
