"Hate radio host Neal Boortz: Health bill will kill more people than a terrorist attack."

Following the failed Christmas Day terrorist attack, many on the right have used the incident as a political football, trying to score partisan points on the issue of terrorism. Hate radio host Neal Boortz took this politicizing to a new level on his Twitter account yesterday, saying that the failed terrorist attack would have killed fewer people than the congressional health care bill if it is passed:

Of course, Boortz won’t acknowledge the fact that nearly 45,000 Americans are estimated to perish every year simply because they do not have access to proper health coverage. Stephen Flynn of the Center for National Policy notes that “Americans are at far greater risk of being killed in accidents or by viruses than by acts of terrorism.”
