GOP Rep. Compares Republicans Against Obamacare To 9/11 Heroes

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) compared Republicans trying to defund Obamacare to the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) likened those who doubt the success of his cause to Nazi appeasers–implying that those who support denying affordable health care to millions are heroes. In a third grotesque, self-aggrandizing historical analogy, Rep. John Culberson (R-TX, shown at right) compared Republicans seeking to defund Obamacare to the heroic passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 who fought the terrorists on 9/11. MSNBC reporter Benjy Sarlin tweeted Culberson's comment:

Culberson doubled down on his comparison, telling a reporter that he made "a good historical analogy."
