Senator: Health exchange like Holocaust

"The insurance companies are creating their own tombs," she said in an email. "Much like the Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps, private insurers are used by the feds to put the system in place because the federal government has no way to set up the exchange. Based on legislation and the general process that is written toward this legislation, the federal government will want nothing to do with private insurance companies. The feds will have a national system of health insurance and they will eliminate the insurance companies."
Nuxoll defended her analogy, saying she wanted people to "hear the truth and to be aware that what is being presented before us is a socialistic program."
"There is no disrespect for any group or people with the analogy," she said.
In an email that was linked from her Twitter page, Nuxoll said a Spokesman Review reporter questioned her about the analogy, "implying that it was inappropriate and wrong to use the analogy."
"My question to [the reporter] and all of you is; would it be any different had I changed the subject matter from Jews to Catholics? Or any other group of people that were victim to annihilation?" she wrote.
"I am shocked by that message," said
Under the Affordable Care Act, the exchanges serve as an online portal for consumers to shop for health insurance.
