Cruz Likens Obamacare Defunding Skeptics To Nazi Appeasers

During his marathon speech in support of defunding Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) likened those who doubt the success of his cause to Nazi appeasers. Cruz made his comparison as he took his "brave" stand to deny affordable health care to millions. Watch:

CRUZ: If you go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany. Look, we saw in Britain, Neville Chamberlain, who told the British people, 'Accept the Nazis. Yes, they'll dominate the continent of Europe, but that's not our problem. Let's appease them. Why? Because it can't be done. We can't possibly stand against them.' And in America there were voices that listened to that. I suspect those same pundits who say it can't be done, if it had been in the 1940s, we would have been listening to them. Then they would have made television. They would have gotten beyond carrier pigeons and beyond letters and they would have been on TV and they would have been saying, 'You cannot defeat the Germans.'
