Tuesday's HOT MIC
Repeal Obamacare? There's a death threat for that.
A note warning Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) to vote against the GOP healthcare bill was taped to the door of the his district office on Sunday, according to Monday reports, saying that the author would lose their life if the reform legislation passes — and so would Heller.
The Nevada Independent reported the note told Heller that the individual would lose his healthcare should the senator vote for the GOP legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and that the writer, and Heller, would die as a result.
The Independent said previous reports that the senator’s office had been broken into were incorrect, but that the individual in question unlawfully entered the federal building.

Democrats and the Left have long been warning that if Republicans repeal the so-called "Affordable Care Act" better known as Obamacare, millions of people would die as a result. In May, some enterprising Social Justice Warriors launched a website "Mail Me to the GOP," which would allow people to send their remains to Republicans in Congress should they perish after Obamacare was repealed.
Now, this rhetoric has resulted in an unlawful entry to a federal building and a death threat. Obamacare has concretely harmed Americans, but Republicans have struggled to repeal and replace the bill, with fewer than 60 seats in the U.S. Senate. With Democrats unwilling to play ball, Americans will suffer as health care reform languishes. But expect the Left to continue to stoke violent rhetoric.
