Echoes of 1994
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) warned against extreme rhetoric on the other side. Politico reports:
On KMOX radio on June 24, President Clinton said: "I don't suppose there's any public figure that's ever been subject to any more violent, personal attacks than I have, at least in modern history, anybody's who's been President."
In Detroit on August 6, 1994, he said: "The violent, extremist interests in this country that are trying to keep health care out of the reach of ordinary American working people are a disgrace to the American dream."
