Why do Congressmen and women compare virtually anything they deem offensive or unjust to the Holocaust?
The Holocaust was the deliberate and systematic execution of a people on a scale that is really hard to rival. The Republicans' attempt to deny health insurance reform can at worst be described as act of indifference towards life while the Holocaust can at best be described as the willful taking of life. The Republicans are, at worst, guilty of manslaughter. The Nazis at best,- first degree serial murder.
