Bachmann concedes defunding ‘Obamacare’ won’t happen in 2011

In an interview with the Family Research Council (FRC) on Tuesday evening, Rep. Michele Bachmann admitted that the new health care law won’t be defunded in 2011. The FRC hosted a webcast called “Time to Act: How big government is fiscally and morally bankrupting America,” during which Bachmann also said she wants FRC’s membership to pray for her and other Republicans to have “supernatural abilities.” FRC’s Tony Perkins said to Bachmann, “We need to defund the government takeover of health care.

In an interview with the Family Research Council (FRC) on Tuesday evening, Rep. Michele Bachmann admitted that the new health care law won’t be defunded in 2011. The FRC hosted a webcast called “Time to Act: How big government is fiscally and morally bankrupting America,” during which Bachmann also said she wants FRC’s membership to pray for her and other Republicans to have “supernatural abilities.”

FRC’s Tony Perkins said to Bachmann, “We need to defund the government takeover of health care. That needs to be included in the temporary or permanent fixes to the budget.”

Bachmann said, “Right now it doesn’t look that way like we will, and I’m very sorry to see that and i want to thank your listeners and viewers, they literally melted phone lines.”

She continued, “Because of the fact they pushed so hard now we are seeing in the 2012 budget, we are seeing a full repeal and defunding of ‘Obamacare’ for the 2012 proposed budget.”

But she was hopeful for next year. “Maybe not necessarily this week will we see that, but now we are seeing that in the Republican budget for 2012.”

She again claimed that the Affordable Care Act will fund abortions

“‘Obamacare’ for the first time in the history of this country will have taxpayer subsidized abortion in the health care bill. President Obama denied it, we know that it’s true. It’s already come true in Pennsylvania. We don’t want to see taxpayer-funded abortion.”

Despite Bachmann’s statement, numerous fact-checkers have dubbed the claim false. Politifact and Factcheck.org both evaluated numerous claims that the new health law pays for abortion and found those claims lacking truth.

As for Pennsylvania, the claim that “Obamacare” is paying for abortions there has been soundly debunked, most notably .

Perkins asked Bachmann, “How can folks that are watching pray for you?”

She said, “To have stamina and health and also more than anything I would ask for prayers for wisdom and for guidance. That is the most important thing.”

She continued, “Solomon said of the Lord when he was praying he wanted wisdom and understanding. For anyone who is in public office it doesn’t take long to realize the limits of our human ability.”

“We need a supernatural ability and that’s something only the Lord would provide.”
