Representative Michael Cahill, a Democrat lawmaker from New Hampshire, is in hot water after asking if the legislature had looked at euthanasia for the disabled during a budget debate in the state.
“Since we are refusing to raise revenues to fund services for disabled, for example, have you looked at euthanasia?” he asked on the House floor.
Cahill’s statement was quickly condemned as displayed in this news report:
House Speaker Shawn Jasper quickly called Cahill out of order and called his comments “inappropriate.”
Rep. Cahill later apologized.
