Congressman Was Actually Shouting 'Baby Killer' At Bill Guy Supported, Not At Actual Guy

Baby killer shouter“Last night was the climax of weeks and months of debate on a health-care bill that my constituents fear and do not support. In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase ‘it’s a baby killer’ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference to Congressman Stupak himself.”
-Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) explains that whole unfortunate “shouting ‘baby killer thing” during yesterday’s health care debate. It’s understandable. When you’re in The Party of Shouting Terrible Things, the intent of the terrible things you shout will occasionally be misinterpreted.
