Bachmann's BS !
"What [President Obama] demanded and insisted upon is that the government have 100 percent control over health care," Bachmann said. "100 percent control? The American people lose control? What did they get? They get health care -- health insurance, I should say -- that is more expensive than anything they've ever paid for before. And they get less for it. Well what a deal, Mr. President, Mr. Speaker. What a deal." http://youtu.be/CAZBDozuRKs
For anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the issue, this is complete gibberish. Under current law, government doesn't have "100 percent control over health care," but rather, private insurers have a key role providing coverage for tens of millions of people. What's more, consumer costs are lower, not higher, and it's more expansive coverage, not less.
It's almost as if Michele Bachmann, after having been caught saying ridiculously untrue things, has no qualms about making matters worse, bringing a new round of shame to her and her constituents.
Of course, she can at least take some comfort in the fact that the House Republican leadership kept her on the House Intelligence Committee, inexplicably giving this deeply strange and unhinged lawmaker access to the nation's most sensitive, highly-classified secrets.
“The political illiterate is so stupid that he is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.” --Bertol Brecht
