Adolf Hitler, call your office!
New Hampshire state Rep. Michael Cahill thinks if his Republican colleagues are unwilling to raise taxes, the state should consider offing the liabilities in society.
“Since we are refusing to raise revenues to fund needed programs, to fund services to disabled, for example, have you looked at euthanasia?” asked Cahill, a Democrat, during a legislative debate on the budget Wednesday.
House Speaker Shawn Jasper quickly called Cahill out of order and called his comments “inappropriate.”
Senate President Chuck Morse says any new taxes are completely off the table — a stance progressives, of course, don’t like.
“It’s not often that all of my colleagues in the Senate can agree upon one thing, but today I think we can all agree that we must set aside this reckless Republican budget that just came over from the House,” Democrat Andrew Hosmer tells New Hampshire Public Radio.
Meanwhile, Cahill blamed his emotions for his outburst suggesting the state kill the disabled.
“I don’t think we should be abandoning people, and I know we have to balance the budget,” he says.
He apologized, saying it was a “poor choice of words.”
