California Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer said on Tuesday that House Republicans will kill 8,100 Americans with the latest version of their payroll tax cut bill.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate, Boxer, the chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, assailed a provision House Republicans attached to their payroll tax-cut bill that would delay boiler regulations the Environmental Protection Agency recently enacted.
“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,” Boxer said. “They attach that to the payroll tax cut. So have that for a Christmas gift.”
Maybe the GOP could get Boxer on board if they referred to the hypothesized fatalities as “retroactive abortions.”
Fun fact: Leading scientists theorize that putting Barbara Boxer in the Hadron Collider and turning it on would lead to the discovery of “The Dipshit Particle.”
