Rep. Michele Bachmann: Obamacare Is The “Crown Jewel Of Socialism”
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann always knows how to deliver an eye-catching sound bite and today on the floor of the House of Representatives she did not disappoint by declaring that “Obamacare, as we know it, is the crown jewel of socialism – it is socialized medicine.” Bachmann also attempted to argue that taking steps towards repeal is not merely a symbolic act.
Bachmann continued, “this is why we were sent here and we will not stop until we repeal a President and put a President in the position of the White House who will repeal this bill.” In case you were confused what Bachmann’s ultimate intentions are, she repeats the phrase “repeal this bill” so many times that all members of Congress might go along with her simply to stop hearing her say it. Though at least she does raise one point worthy of debate, that the rising costs of healthcare associated with the bill are likely to “break the bank.”
Despite Congressman Steve Cohen being worried about Republican lies related to healthcare, Bachmann is not one to back down from passionately defending her position and using whatever hyperbole necessary in the process.
