Democratic senator Chris Murphy is drawing ire from Twitter users after he suggested that the government can solve all of people’s problems.
“Last night proved, one again, that there is no anxiety or sadness or fear you feel right now that cannot be cured by political action,” Murphy wrote.

His comments immediately sparked anger among people who called the sentiment “sick” and “horrible.”
Wow. That’s a horrible sentiment. Horrible. You suggest politics is the solution to everything. I can’t even fathom what that life is like.

My best friend passed away last year – can your political action cure my sadness? You lunatic.

So you worship government, and think politics is all-powerful.
That, sir, is sick, sad, and very dangerous.
