Tennessee State Senator Compares Obamacare To The Holocaust

ASSOCIATED PRESS

On Monday, a Tennessee state senator apparently likened Obamacare’s individual mandate to Nazi Germany’s slaughter of Jews.

A brief post published at the blog of state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) read: “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory [sic] sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s.”

The comment was flagged by the Nashville Scene and noted on Twitter by BuzzFeed reporter Evan McMorris Santoro. A screenshot is below.

TPM’s query to Campfield for elaboration was not immediately returned.
