During the Q & A segment of a Monday Facebook Live event regarding Republican efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ramped up the divisive political rhetoric that lawmakers agreed must be toned down following the recent shooting at a Republican practice for a charity baseball game.
In response to a question from a woman named Mary, Sanders insisted that “we’ve got to stand up and fight back. We have got to be involved in the political process in a way that we have never been before, because what is happening in Washington right now is unprecedented.
“So you have got to, Mary, act in an unprecedented way, think big, get involved in every way that you can,” Sanders said. “So, Mary, stand up and fight back in every way that you can.”
Sanders also accused Republicans of being “cowardly” for not agreeing to publicly debate their ObamaCare replacement bill, and contended that the GOP would be responsible for thousands of American deaths if the bill is passed.
Warren interjected her view, telling Sanders she believes that Republicans will not pay a political price “for the harm they inflicted upon millions of people across this country.”
