Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro (Conn.) went absolutely nuts on Friday during a floor speech where she claimed the GOP was out to “Get Old People.”
The Free Beacon reports:
“Working people, older Americans are going to pay for a tax cut for the richest people in this nation. Older Americans are going to be hit the hardest,” DeLauro said of the American Health Care Act. Not only are they going to get an age tax, but they’re going to shift $170 billion out of the Medicare trust fund, a lifeline for older Americans.”
DeLauro then turned her focus to the Republican Party.
“And you know what, it makes me believe that this is the case. What does the GOP stand for? ‘Get Old People,’ that’s what this bill does,” she said. “That’s what people are going to vote yes for today.”
The DeLauro was speaking out against the Republican proposal to replace Obamacare, which was scheduled for a vote on Friday but was ultimately cancelled because Republicans didn’t have the votes needed.
Talk about losing composure, DeLauro came completely unhinged and lost any semblance of having rational thought.
What is it with these crazy Democrats?
