Georgia Congressman Paul Broun: “People Are Gonna Die” Because Of Energy Legislation
Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun, already infamous for saying the pubic option for health care would kill people, now says energy legislation, and who refers to the Civil War as “the Great War of Yankee Aggression,” now says if Congress passes a clean energy bill, “people are gonna die.”
BROUN: A lot of old people in Georgia and Florida and all out throughout the southeast and the southwest are dependent on air conditioning just to live. And if their electricity bills go sky high, as the energy tax is gonna make it happen, if that ever passes there are a lot of people that can’t afford to run their air conditioning any more and a lot of people are gonna have a hard time with hyperthermia is what I call it — what we call it in medicine as a medical doctor — which means that their body temperature’s gonna go up, they’re gonna have dehydration, and people are gonna have a lot of problems. And it’s gonna have a greater impact on our health care system and people are gonna die because of that. But it’s gonna kill jobs too.
