Boxer: "Poison Pill" In GOP Payroll Tax Bill "Will Kill 8,100" People For Christmas
RCP ^ | 12/13/2011 | RCP

Posted on 12/14/2011 10:41:31 AM PST by Qbert

"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," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Cali.) said on the Senate floor today about Republicans trying to roll back a Clean Air Act provision.

[Snip]

"So have that for a Christmas gift," Boxer said after she scared people with the 8,100 number.

She’s slipping. She forgot to mention how many children, dogs, cats, bunny rabbits, hamsters, and zoo animals will die.

BTW, is she absolutely certain it won’t be 8,103? This is important.

Yep. And this is coming from the same woman who supports forcing mercury-filled, breakable lightbulbs on us...

I thought that good liberals aren’t supposed to say the word “Christmas”. She is not being inclusive or celebrating diversity by her use of the offensive word “Christmas”. What kind of liberal is she??????

The oil producing states should refuse to ship oil or gas to CA. Let this witch use her broom for transportation instead of government paid jets.

Honestly, I’m still shaking my head over the idea that the Left including the environmentalists are thrilled about that.

In reality, you and I are much better environmentalists than they are.

We say, use common sense and don’t hurt the environment if you can help it. They go postal and demand things that will hurt the environment to supposedly help it.

Mercury? Call a hazmat team if you break a bulb? Really?

Good grief.

I got your “poison pill” Ms. Boxer and her name starts with a P and ends with an i. Actually,Ms. Boxer, er, maam, you can be included in my “Poison Pill list along with Pelosi and all the progressives in our government, Ms. Boxer is a waste of oxygen. She rants in her 1960’s “burnt my bra” fashion and looks down the bridge of her nose through those well placed reading glasses and attaches much to much importance to herself. In other words, she gags me.

Hey, Babs, aren’t you one of those same people who keep wringing their hands over how the earth is overpopulated? You should be WELCOMING a few thousand extra deaths, no?

"Honestly, I’m still shaking my head over the idea that the Left including the environmentalists are thrilled about that."

It's really just Narcissism for many of them when it comes down to it- facts are irrelevant; something is "right or wrong" simply because they say so.

Same thing with gay issues- opposing gay marriage to them is "evil and hateful"... but Islamists killing people because they are gay, well, that's totally different. Because they said so.

I think the key word here is “waiting”. LOL

She should be called on it. Good job. The woman is deranged, and what passes for our media, looks the other way.

It’s like fiddling while Rome burns isn’t it.

Of course, because a woman has absolute right to her own body. Kill the pesky litle fetuses. So darned inconvenient.

But save the snail darters and water invertebrates.

In a Congress made up of thieves, perverts, liars and plain old scum, BB stands out as stupidity without equal.

By her statement, Boxer is saying is that she is willing to be personally responsible for the deaths of some 72,900 folks. How so? Apparently she believes the proposed pollution restrictions will save some 8,100 lives. What is left unsaid is that by making the regulations 10-times more restrictive, one could extrapolate a saving of 81,000 lives. So Boxer is saying that she is okay sacrificing those extra 72,000 folks by not being willing to do what's necessary to protect their lives.

Just who are these walking corpses and where do they live?

Don’t forget the Delta Smelt that is more important than food farmed in the CA central valley, so important that instead of allowing water to go into aqueduct, they pump the water and freshwater smelt into the ocean.

Where do these numbers come from? 8100? Seems like a strange estimation number.

Do they have a formula somewhere that says X people die for each mile of pipeline?

Maybe they think that employment kills people faster than unemployment. Thus each job equates to killing someone.

Since the law wouldn’t take effect until after Christmas, it is physically impossible for changes from the law to kill anybody for Christmas.

So she is simply lying. Once you realise that, how she GOT the false number is really less important.

When is Priebus going to respond by saying that this sort of speech should not be condoned and that a censure vote should be cast by the Congress?

Boxer, like Holder and Obama, is, after all, a professional liar.

And their constituents love them for it.
