GOP Rep. Foxx Denounces Liberal ‘Character Assassination,’ Previously Said Health Care Bill Scarier Than Terrorism

CQ Roll Call/Newscom

In a profile piece for the Winston-Salem Journal, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) made an interesting declaration about Democrats — that without ideas, all they have to use against the conservative opposition is character assassination.

“I’m a small-government conservative, and that’s not very fashionable in Washington,” said Foxx. “The liberals have no new ideas, and so they’re reduced to character assassination.”

The accusation of character assassination seems a bit peculiar, coming from Foxx. She has previously said of the health care bill: “I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country.” And she’s also implied that the Dems’ health care plans would “put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government.”
