Rep. Waxman accuses GOP of murder

Republicans ‘getting away—literally—with murder’

BY:

Rep. Henry Waxman (D., Calif.) literally accused House Republicans of literally getting away with murder with their latest batch of energy legislation.

Roll Call reports:

House Natural Resources ranking member Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Energy and Commerce ranking member Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) did not spare the harsh rhetoric when unloading on a Republican energy proposal slated for a House vote this week.

The legislation is a "monstrosity," a "Trojan horse," an "all-out assault" on the environment and a "massive giveaway" to the oil industry that would not lower gas prices by "one cent," the two lawmakers said. …

Continuing his response, Waxman upped the ante, saying Republicans are "getting away — literally — with murder" because of their record on the environment.

"Some of these pollutants do harm, and they may even lead to fatalities," Waxman said.
