Stacey Campfield responds to his critics over the Holocaust -Obamacare comment.

From Stacey Campfield's Facebook page:

I regret that some people miss the point of my post. It was not to offend. It was to warn. To draw attention to Obamacare and the slippery slope that I see occurring in the lives of myself, my constituents, and the rest of the country with the continued taking of freedom by the federal government.

In no way was my post meant to diminish or detract from the pain, suffering and loss of human life that occurred during this dark time in human history. Instead the post was meant to draw attention to the loss of freedom that we are currently experiencing. I stand by my steadfast opposition to Obamacare.
My position and record on the sacredness of human life and protecting that life speaks for itself. 300 million Americans are at risk from government bureaucrats deciding who should be given life saving medications and who should be denied. Every citizen now faces the possibility of their tax dollars going to pay for a government funded abortion. At no point in our history have we ever faced a federal government and administration with a lower regard for human life, and that is something that I cannot and will not allow to go unchallenged.

I will continue to stand up against the government takeover of the nations healthcare. I will continue to support freedom and life.

 My Comment: Stacy, I got the point. The point is that if people are going to be punished for not doing something, then it is not very praise worthy or much of an accomplishment when most people do it.  A better analogy would be comparing Obamacare sign ups to the 99% of the people who were supposed to file income taxes and actually filed income taxes. Your example of the holocaust and free train rides was insensitive and repugnant.  You should have said so succinctly with humility and let it go at that.
