Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer: " GOP Payroll Tax Cut Bill Will “Literally Kill 8,100 People" ...More Insanity From The Left

Boxer: GOP giving Americans 'poison' for Christmas

The Hill

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) on Tuesday accused Republicans of pushing legislation that would poison more than 8,000 people to death as a Christmas gift to Americans.

“They have attached a poison pill — literally, colleagues — because it will kill 8,100 more people more than would have otherwise been killed from pollution,” said Boxer, referring to a provision Republicans have included in their payroll tax cut extension bill that would delay the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) industrial boiler regulations.

“They attach that to the payroll tax cut,” said Boxer, the chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. “So have that for a Christmas gift.”

Boxer went on to mock Republican senators, wondering what they might say to their constituents when the return to their districts for the holiday break.

" 'Hi, I'm your senator, here is a tax cut for you of about a thousand dollars but sorry you might die from breathing in too much poison in the form of mercury lead and arsenic,' " she said. “That’s what’s going on here.”

"We have asked for a lot from Santa in our day but we have never asked for lead, arsenic and mercury,” Boxer concluded.

Wild Thing's comment......

Wait jsut a second.... will Boxer be one of the 8,100??? heh heh

Everytime the Republicans pass something we hear how many people will be killed. Kind of strange coming from the same people who throw money at Planned Parenthood.

Another well thought out comment by the second dumbest member of the Senate, who by the way continues to get re-elected by my fellow citizens of the Peoples' Republic of California.

The dumbest member? The Super Committees own Patty Murray.
