Senior Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald wishes that everyone who supports Trumpcare would watch their families suffer and die. “As one w/ preexisting condition: I hope ever GOPr who voted 4 Trumpcare sees a family member get long term condition, lose insurance, & die,” wrote Eichenwald on Twitter.
When questioned, he did not back down. “Nobody tell me how to feel knowing if I lose my insurance, Im dead. I want the GOPrs who support this to feel the pain in their own families,” he wrote. If he had really read the bill he would know that he is not losing his insurance. He went even further.
“because I want them to be tortured. GOPrs only gain empathy when they are touched by the consequences, never before.I wish it on the ppl who chose it for me. Why should they not feel the consequences of their inhumanity? sorry. They want to drink beer celebrating killing people? Then it should be their loved ones who die,” he wrote on Twitter.
The Daily Caller reached out to him for a comment. He still refused to back down. “The only way people incapable of empathy will understand reality is when they face it. So yes, to save millions, I think the people who inflicted these consequences on strangers should see the consequences up close and personal,” he wrote to them.
“The goprs in congress didn’t just send out a tweet wishing for me to face my own death. They actually voted to do it,” he wrote. Is he insane?
