Jewish groups are calling on U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, to apologize for using Holocaust terminology in attacking Republicans. Cohen, addressing the House of Representatives Tuesday night in a debate over a Republican bill to repeal last year's heath care reforms, likened GOP claims to tactics used by the Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. "They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” he said. He also called the Republican claims a "blood libel."
