Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) rears her ugly, stupid head — again

As a rule, we don’t use terms like “ugly” and “stupid” very often. But, sometimes, there’s no other way to describe some people.

Most Americans had never heard of Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) until she infamously said on the House floor that Matthew Shepard’s murder was a hoax:

this — the bill was named for him, hate crimes bill was named for him, but it’s really a hoax that that continues to be used as an excuse for passing these bills.

Stupid and hateful.

She’s back with more stupidity — this time on health care. Via Think Progress, here’s her latest gem:

There are no Americans who don’t have healthcare. Everybody in this country has access to healthcare

That should be of great comfort to all those Americans who think they don’t have access to health care. The Republicans don’t live in the real world.
