Bachmann Promotes D.C. ‘Super Bowl of Freedom’ Anti-Health Care Reform Rally

Via TPM, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) took to Fox News this morning to plug the anti-health care reform rally — which she referred to as “the Super Bowl of Freedom” — she is organizing in Washington with the corporate-funded, small-government group Americans for Prosperity. After the rally — which is scheduled for noon Thursday on the Capitol steps and, Bachmann said, will feature actor Jon Voight — she said she plans to lead attendees into the Rayburn, Longworth and Cannon congressional office buildings so they can “look at the whites of the eyes of their members of Congress and say, ‘Don’t you remember, I told you don’t take away my health care.’”

Bachmann added that it was important to stop health care reform because “socialized medicine is the crown jewel of socialism.”

As Greg Sargent and Eric Kleefeld reported yesterday, the House Republican leadership has endorsed Bachmann’s plan to bring an anti-reform rally inside the halls of Congress.
