Idaho lawmaker: Obamacare is like ‘Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps’

A Republican lawmaker in Idaho is defending her comparison of President Barack Obama’s health care reform law to the Holocaust because private insurance companies were like “the Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps” and that the federal governor would eventually “pull the trigger” to destroy them.

In an email sent to supporters and messages posted on Twitter last week, state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll warned that a health care exchange proposed by Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter (R) was “replacing capitalism with socialism.”

“The insurance companies are creating their own tombs,” Nuxoll wrote in the letter obtained by The Spokesman-Review. “Much like the Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps, private insurers are used by the feds to put the system in place because the federal government has no way to set up the exchange.”

“Several years from now, the federal government will want nothing to do with private insurance companies,” she warned. “The feds will have a national system of health insurance and they will pull the trigger on the insurance companies.”

On Wednesday, Nuxoll told The Spokesman-Review that she just wanted “people to hear the truth and to be aware that what is being presented before us is a socialistic program… There is no disrespect for any group or people with the analogy.”

“I felt badly for the Jews – it wasn’t just Jews, but Jews, and Christians, and Catholics, and priests,” she said to explain her comparison. “My thing was they didn’t know what was going on. The insurance companies are not realizing what’s going to end up in their demise.”

1. She should know I guess, Idaho, haven to neoNazi idiots.

She has no functioning grasp of the constitution, Obama care or the Horrors of the Holocaust.

Idaho deserves whoever they vote in office. State song: I'm a goober, you're a goober, whouln't you want to be a goober too?

3. Yes it's exactly the same.

Oh those poor doomed insurance companies. So sad. How can they gouge us for profits if there's a government watching them? Just tears me up. Pray for them.

5. Where do these people come from?



BTW England and France spend about 8 to 11% of their GDP on health care we spend
over 18% and the difference is all the money those poor health care companies make
so if we got rid of those for profit private insurance companies and replaced them
w/ a single payer national health care system I would be good w/ that.

BTW she didn't mean any disrespect by talking this trash?

11. Yeah, it was just like that...

except that the Jews on those boxcars were people and corporations are NOT

But as for her prediction of what will happen, vis a vis socialized healthcare--I hope she's right, I really do!

Also, Catholics are Christians--I HATE it when people try to make a distinction between one and the other, like we're not.

14. Catholics are Christians??????



Now that is a horse of a different color. These people really live in their
own little worlds where Reagan and the Bushes running up huge debts is the
fault of liberals and that Iraq was behind 9/11.

13. The insurance companies don't realize what going on?

Yes. Because the insurance companies only employ small armies of lawyers, consultants and actuaries who crunch numbers day and night.

When what they really needed was some dumb-fuck from Idaho.
