Repeal Obamacare bill introduced by Michele Bachmann - First of 113th Congress

Repeal Obamacare bill introduced by Michele Bachmann - First of 113th Congress

By Terri Schwartz | January 4, 2013 9:35 AM ET

The first day of the 113th Congress has arrived, and unsurprisingly a repeal Obamacare bill was the first item to hit the floor. Even more unsurprising: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was the one to introduce it.

"At noon today, I introduced the first bill of the 113th Congress to repeal Obamacare in its entirety," she tweeted proudly on Jan. 3.

Despite Bachmann's continued efforts, it seems as though the nation has come to accept the Obamacare initiative. A Kaiser Family Foundation Poll released after President Barack Obama was elected for his second term shows that only a third of the country wants to repeal Obamacare, which is reportedly a record low.

This isn't the first time Congress has tried to pass a repeal Obamacare bill. In 2012, the Senate attempted to get rid of the new health care program 33 times, and failed in each one. CBS News reported in July that the Republican repeal effort took up 80 hours total (the equivalent of two work weeks) and cost about $48 million.

Since when has a poll ever slowed this ignorant, rancid cunt (or her fag husband) from doing something something stupid?

Her district is too stupid to be taken seriously. Send her home and build a fence around the place.

I'm starting a lobbying business to draft these bills. 10% of $48 million for 80 hours work sounds lucrative.

I hope she gets to work on that birth certificate thing next.

Well since no one, especially Republicans, take her seriously, this showboating is to be expected.

Guess she hasn't learned anything from her near defeat in November.

What a clown. The Tea Party has proven to be the downfall of the republican party as every sensible citizen knew it would.

Seriously, we need a revolution so some of the assholes can be killed off.

R8, it's not helpful to sound as crazy as the Tea Party

Gerrymandering is the ONLY reason why she is still in Congress.

Fuck you, gerrymanderers (is that a word?)!

R6, Dems in her district need to find a great candidate and raise a lot of $$$. Then they can take her down!

Have to agree with R9. There's no need for that since they do enough damage to themselves.

They did that in the last election. Even Bill Clinton came out to campaign against her.

Her district is very republican and she barely survived.

by Anonymousreply 1301/04/2013

But she DID survive, R13.

A win is a win, unfortunately.

For 20 years I have seen Democrats behave like intelligent, educated, sophisticated, reasonable people...what has it gotten them?

You need to get down in the dirt with these dimwits...they do not understand anything else.

That bitch probably had little tremors of orgasm the entire time she was introducing the bill. God, why doesn't someone releave us of this cunt.

Jim Graves and Bill Clinton TRIED, R16. Voters let her back in. We can only do so much.

Please, this twat is ridiculous.

The failure of progressives to defeat Bachmann is our biggest defeat of 2012.

What were the final percentages in her race in November?

by Anonymousreply 2001/04/2013

^ I think she got like 50.8% of the vote
