Florida Tea Baggers: Day Healthcare Reform Passed Was "One of the Darkest Days Since 9/11"

A bunch of tea baggers held a rally on the steps of the Florida capitol up in Tallahassee today, and politicians including Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp came out and spoke to them while standing by a podium made to look like two crates stamped with the word "Tea."

Naked Politics reports that one of the speakers told the crowd that the day healthcare reform passed was "one of the darkest days since 9/11."

So let's get this straight: the day when millions of Americans were promised more fair and affordable access to healthcare can be equated to a day when 2,973 people lost their lives to terrorists?

Republican Rep. Lake Ray also told the crowd that "euthanasia is what they have in mind."
