Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) seems to have a genuine fetish for insisting that anything he doesn't like will destroy everything.
The last time Broun appeared on this column, it was for insisting that immigration reform will "destroy our country" and "our constitution".
"We need to defund it, we need to delay it, we need to put it on the shelf and stop this implementation because it is destroying our economy," said Broun.
When asked about the nation's debt ceiling, Broun suggested an amendment to the Constitution requiring a balanced budget, a process that would take years to accomplish.
"So, you’re not demanding any concessions on Obamacare in order to raise the debt ceiling?" Blitzer asked.
"Well, Obamacare must go," Broun replied. "It's destroying America…. Wolf, I want to get the American people the relief that they need from this out-of-control spending, and I'll do everything that I possibly can do to do that."
"And Obamacare is going to destroy everything we know as a nation,” he added. "Wolf, I’m a doctor. I’m a medical doctor!"
A medical doctor best known for openly professing a belief that embryology, the big bang and evolution are "lies straight from the Pit of Hell."
Sorry Dr. Broun, but if we ever want medical advice, we'll ask someone who isn't liable to prescribe an exorcism.
