    The newfound civility didn’t last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesn’t get much nastier than the words of one House Democrat during the debate on repealing the health care law.

    In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

    “They say it's a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels," Cohen said. "You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That's the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.

    How does Cohen sleep at night ?
    Surely he can't be as ignorant as he professes......
    Who is he fighting for? Is the hand in his pocket playing
    pocket pool, and he likes it???????
    Or has such a tight grip that he (Cohen) can't resist?
    Side note: NOONE is born THAT ignorant !
