Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield said, “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.” But rather than apologize after both Republicans and Democrats condemned him, he’s saying we just don’t understand the point he was making.

“I regret that some people miss the point of my post,” state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) wrote in a blog post titled “Here you go.” “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.”…

But that didn’t stop the senator from elaborating on the comparison further, even suggesting that “government funded abortion” was the real culprit.

“300 million Americans are at risk from government bureaucrats deciding who should be given life saving medications and who should be denied,” he went on. “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.”
