Martin Bashir Blames GOP for Cantaloupe Food Poisoning Deaths

In an ridiculous ranting and raving diatribe on his hour long show on MSNBC, host Martin Bashir (we have no idea who this guy is) actually tried to blame budget cutting by Republican lawmakers for a deadly outbreak of listeria in cantaloupe: "John Boehner and his Republican majority decided to gut the food safety and inspection service....Cut, cut, cut. Now the results are in. 16 people have lost their lives."

Bashir went on to blame free market and less government for the outbreak: "Republicans in Congress talk proudly of their commitment of laissez-faire economics, where government gets out of the way and everything works perfectly. You try telling that to those who ate melon with a side of listeria."
