GOP Congressman On Obamacare: We're Just Like Flight 93 Passengers Fighting Terrorists

GOP Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) compared the GOP's insipid fight against Obamacare to the heroic efforts of the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 who overpowered terrorists who had gained control of the plane.

Duncan's right. These tea party politicians are just horrible, stupid children.

During a meeting of the House Republican Caucus, Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) compared the relentless Republican effort to defund Obamacare to the heroic efforts of the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 who overpowered terrorists who had gained control of the plane.

Asked lasted about the analogy by a skeptical reporter, Culberson didn’t back down calling it “a good historical analogy.”
The path forward endorsed by Speaker Boehner and the House GOP leadership is quite popular with the more extreme elements of the party. Michele Bachmann gushed, “this is exactly what we asked for an we got it.”

How odious is GOP Congressman John Culberson? Here's what he had to say about victims of NOLA:

"John Culberson, R-Houston. "I think the percentage of people unhappy with the deadbeats from New Orleans would be larger but for the big hearts of Houstonians who want these folks to get back on their feet, as I do."

These are the people being elected to represent the United States. America exceptionalism died with the rise of Conservatism.
