Bachmann Introduces Health Care Repeal Bill

Monday, March 22, 2010 at 3:06 pm

The Minnesota congresswoman, who’s promised to introduce “repealer bill after repealer bill” if Republicans win a majority in 2010, introduces a one-page bill aimed at repealing health care reform. The goal — Bachmann introduced this idea at last night’s rally outside the Capitol — is to get every Republican member on the record, on board.

The bill:

Brain Dead. The Great State of Minnesota will send Bachmann packing come November. Republicans don't realize that by passing the Health Care Reform Bill, the Democratic base will be rejuvenize and come out not only to elect Democrats, but to see that Republicans kicked out of Washington.

For someone who bandies about her “god” in nearly everything she says and does, does it even occur to her that healthcare reform is a moral issue? Seems her “god” doesn't care about that. Too busy talking to her in tongues, I suppose.

Consider the direction the GOP is going (I get the distinct impression of someone flushing themselves down the toilet), and their lack of ideas, November is going to be very interesting, indeed.

No, no, no… Bible Jesus says feed the poor and help the sick. Republican Jesus says F%$# 'em, lazy good for nothings don't even have bootstraps to pull themselves up by, we need a tax cut, and more war to justify three quarters of a trillion dollars annually for the Pentagon.

That's why the quotes. I don't know, nor care who she “speaks” to, but it isn't the god or Jesus the rest of religious America is familiar with.
As you say, her “god” doesn't seem to give two s**ts about the poor OR the sick, apparently. She wields her “god” like a weapon. Not a very Christian attitude, if you ask me.
Oh, and yes, isn't the hypocrisy of “supporting the troops” while opposing healthcare reform at the same time something akin to what Jesus railed against?

Once again, as if we needed any reminders, the Republican-Conservative party has shown themselves to be completely irresponsible, unable to govern this great country. They have shown that they will go to any lengths, spread any lie, rumor, or fear, in order to protect the narrow special interests of their Corporate masters over the interests of the American people. While President Obama and Democratic party, put their sleeves up, and did the hard work to craft a Health Insurance Reform bill that will provide long-needed consumer protections to the Middle Class, the Republican-Conservative party has behaved like spoiled children. No I take that back. Spoiled children behave better. The Republican-Conservative party's behavior has been absolutely reprehensible.

Cont. But those of us in the Middle Class, who put our sleeves up, and did the hard work to elect Barack Obama President, well, our job is not finished. Actually it's far from finished. Just as we did during the election, we need to work, just as we always work, every day, to make the lives of our families better. We have to start picking up the phone and calling people, and knocking on our neighbors door, just as we did during the election. We must ensure that the 53 percent of the American people who elected Barack Obama President, show up this November on election day, and once again make sure our voice, our shout, our demand for real change in this country is heard. If we get complacent, if we get lazy, then the Republican-Conservative fear factory will grab any rein of power they can, and change us back, back to the days of Katrina, Economic Collapse, and Dishonor. You might have thought that it was just a slogan, but we really are the change we've been waiting for. Make sure you show up, and vote, again.

I don't think getting out to vote will be a problem. The American people will see by November who speaks and acts on their behalf.

You forgot to mention the racist infestation of the GOP. That in itself has turned some (five) of my former Republican friends to switch party affiliation. I'm sure there are many, many more across the country. After House members were called racial and sexual epithets and spat on, not to mention the vandalism of certain Democratic offices after the vote, it is clear. Yes, they were baggers, but since the GOP is coddling them, I see no distinction. Being a Republican is becoming a badge of shame. That the GOP does not see this guarantees their reduction to nothing more than an anachronism.

In the meantime, I'll be voting Dem for the forseeable future.

Bachmann was the one telling her constituents not to do the census because Obama was going to use it to sent his opponents to “concentration camps”. Let's hope enough of her district doesn't do the census for Minnesota to lose a congressional seat. Perhaps hers????? Could we be so lucky?

A friend of mine just told me that her white teabagger co-worker filled out his census form to make it look like he and his entire family were African-Americans. No idea why, but I'll bet he's one of the people screaming about how them there ebul dark peoples are a-takin' over the country from decent white folks.

Congrats to the Dem's. Quite an accomplishment. No chance of the law standing though. It only took 6 million to buy the Kennedy Congressional seat. The cost to buy a repeal by putting enough cash into the next elections is just a fraction of the lost potential income the law can cause the insurance industry.

Elections have consequences and the side that wins has no duty enact the loser's agenda. Even if the losers say its tyranny for not doing so, there could be nothing further from the truth.

Get active and appeal to what's right in people instead the reflexive fear and division. Fox polls and Fox filtering of polls does not concern us much.

So we're to believe the Republicans are suddenly public servants? Preposterous.

Ok. It seems like I have to be a lone voice of opposition here. If all of you loony lefties out there think that this is going to IMPROVE your health care or your health care COVERAGE, you are living on MARS!! If any of you think that there is doctor shortage in this country NOW, HUH……..JUST WAIT until this thing REALLY kicks in!!! Just TRY to find a specialist! & When/if you do, if you think you're going to get in to see that specialist “next week,” you've got another thing coming! & If you think your insurance rates will go DOWN, I will ask you, “How's the weather in Eastern Mars?” The way it will happen is the following:

The private insurance industry will experience an EXPLOSION followed by an IMPLOSION! It will raise rates EXPONENTIALLY, and when it can't go any higher, it will IMPLODE! They will ALL GO OUT OF BUSINESS, leaving the ALL-MIGHTY GOVERNMENT to pick up the pieces and be the ONLY OPTION!! That is Obama's grand plan! But I guess, the prospect of total government-run single payer system is just what your doctor ordered!

Michelle Bachman and her other band of idle idiots are very scary. In their quest to win in 2010 and at any cost, they appear not to have the best interest of the Country at heart. Barack Obama and the Democratic party won the 2008 election fair and square they did not steal it. Barack Obama ran a very disciplined campaign for two years in a way that no one had thought of before. His campaign will be studied in political science classes for years to come. I do not believe that the American people are giving him enough of a chance to run the country, they complain and critize everything as if they forget how things were when George Bush and the Republican party was in power. Afterall, the Republican Party is responsible for the overwhelming mess that the country is in today. Why would anyone even consider giving back the power to the Republican party after they drove the country in the ditch in the first place. Instead of working together in the Senate and in the Congress to turn things around they have the time to talk about repealing the Health care bill just because of sour grapes ? The Republican party should be shut out of running the country for many years to come until they learn some lessons about the scare mongering, the lying, the deceptiveness and racism that they practice and also until the Party has been purged of the scary people who are currently the leaders i.e. Michelle Bachman, Rush Limbaugh and others of their ilk.

This rather shows disrespect for the citizens of USA, because if we chose Barack Obama as our president, that means we agreed to be under his guidance and he agreed to do what's best for us. If Michelle Bachman wants to introduce this, that means we aren't important and all she cares about is the political game.

I agree that we knew and wanted the president to pursue health care reform. It was a major component of his campaign. It is also interesting to note that when polls ask the question of “Do you like health care reform?” a majority may say no. But when asked individual parts of what reform does, such as “Do you support being able to keep kids on parents insurance longer?” or “Do you agree insurance companies shouldn't be able to cancel you just because you get sick?” a majority support the changes made by reform. Each individual component is supported by a majority of the people but because of the scare tactics used by the right against health care reform, many people don't realize they actually are getting what they want. Part of the problem is an uninformed public and the other blame rests squarely with those like Bachmann who can't defeat reform with truth, so instead use lies designed to instill fear. And they call themselves “Christians”.
