Bachmann, congressional Republicans in political ‘parallel universe,’ says Bill Clinton

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, former President Bill Clinton said that Rep. Michele Bachmann’s assertion that the United States has the best health care system in the world is not true and that the new crop of Republicans in Congress are living “in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts.” Clinton was responding to comments Bachmann made during her Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union address.

“I don’t like the people who have given up on us because people have been betting against our country for 200 years,” he told the attendees at the World Economic Forum, a yearly gathering of top international business, political and humanitarian leaders. “So far everyone who has bet against us has lost money because we had a remarkable ability to keep coming back.”

“On the other hand,” said Clinton, “I don’t like what I see being set up as one of the main themes that the new Republicans are trying to set up in the 2012 elections which is they know America is a truly exceptional country and all these wussy Democrats don’t.”

He gave the representative from Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District as a prime example. “Michele Bachmann said in her Tea Party response to President Obama, ‘Everybody knows we have the greatest health care system in the world,’” he said. “That is factually untrue. And so… that’s not true.”

Clinton continued, “You can get the best health care in the world in America if you are Bill Clinton, or David Gergen or Turki Faisal, but that’s not the same thing as having the best system that works for everybody.”

He added, “I think what America needs as much as anything else is to stop conducting its politics in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts.”

It’s not the first time the former president has dinged Bachmann. Last September, at a fundraiser for Bachmann’s opponent Tarryl Clark, Clinton said that Bachmann often puts “ideology over evidence.”
