Sen. Bob Rucho (R-Matthews) made the observation Sunday morning in a Twitter post attacking the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that upheld the individual mandate in a June 2012 decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts.
“Justice Robert’s pen & Obamacare has done more damage to the USA then the swords of the Nazis,Soviets & terrorists combined,” Rucho complained.

Rucho, who sponsored a bill to prohibit North Carolina from setting up a health insurance exchange or participating in the Medicaid expansion, did not explain how the Affordable Care Act was worse than the systematic murder of millions of people, but he later defended his remarks.
“Those that tweeted, put your thinking caps back on: ‘The PEN is mightier than the SWORD.’ Edward Bulwar-Lytton,1839. But surely you knew that,” Rucho posted Sunday afternoon.
