Rep. Notter: Black Death “Declined Naturally”

Dean tweets:

Becoming clear that Jeanine Notter is to the #nhhouse what Michelle Bachmann is to US Congress.

Case in point, Rep. Notter on HB 416, a bill to allow an exemption from immunizations for “conscientious beliefs”:

"The Black death was a terrible disease, there was never a shot for the black death and yet it declined naturally. Have you heard of that, the Black Death?"

For the record:

The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30% – 60% of Europe’s population, reducing the world’s population from an estimated 450 million to between 350 and 375 million in 1400. … The plague returned at various times, killing more people, until it left Europe in the 19th century.
