Indiana Republican apologizes for comparing health reform to 9/11 attacks
Indiana Rep. Mike Pence (R) has apologized for comparing Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on health care reform to the tragic, bloody attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to Politico.
Pence, who’s currently seeking Indiana’s governorship, made the statement during a closed-door meeting of the House Republicans, according to sources who were present.
He immediately apologized after being confronted by a reporter.
“My remarks at the Republican Conference following the Supreme Court decision were thoughtless,” he reportedly told Politico. “I certainly did not intend to minimize any tragedy our nation has faced and I apologize.”
