Michele Bachmann Pretends to be Living the Nightmare of Obamacare Daily

Rep. Michele Bachmann claims to be living the nightmare of “Obamacare” using two clinics owned by both Bachmann and her husband as her example.

 

Using talking points on Fox News, she rails against the “government takeover” of health care, which isn’t a government takeover,  and its hidden $105 billion in spending, that wasn’t hidden.

First, her argument:

My husband and I own two clinics. We live the nightmare of Obamacare every day, as do 49 of our employees. We want government to get out of health care, to get out of education, because we think the American people deserve better.

And now the reality which she disregards.  She is using thousands of federal dollars to fund her clinics.

 

Minnesota Independent:

Bachmann and Associates, Inc., a Christian mental health clinic founded and run by Rep. Michele Bachmann’s husband, has been taking money from Minnesota’s coffers since it was founded in 2003. It’s the latest example of a disjuncture in Bachmann’s rhetoric: the Sixth District Republican has seen her star rise in Tea Party circles for fiery rhetoric opposing government “handouts” and “socialized medicine,” while, again, she’s found to be directly benefiting from government funds. Since 2007, the clinic, run by Marcus Bachmann, has taken in nearly $30,000.

 

From this fact and her version of the term ‘socialist’ we can say without contest that she’s a Socialist. Bachmann claimed that she’s “in for 2012” in a previous speech, but later clarified saying she is committed to denying President Barack Obama a second term and not necessarily running herself.

 

Like Newt Gingrich, this unhinged Congress person, is obviously testing the waters to find out how much money she can raise in order to get the GOP nod.

 

What this amounts to, is taking down President Obama by any means necessary — by lying, cheating or hurting America as a whole.

    She is a real piece of work and this is just another example of it. She speaks with forked tongue , and it’s amazing how popular she has become. I have 3 or 4 post on my blog about her and some famous quotes she has said. Plus some interesting facts about Michele Bachmann I bet you would be surprised to know.

    Is there not one moral, honest, truly Christian woman in the GOP? Anywhere? Or do they use Bachmann and Palin to fire shots at the President for them, knowing that the good old boys will not be running a female Presidential candidate until the next century?

    What a phony – collects farm subsidies for the family farm, medicare for the family clinic, a very generous health care plan for the family through the congressional job, great retirement beneifts when she leaves congress -while probably paying little or no taxes due to the tax cuts for the upper class. Meanwhile, screaming that we have to cut all these benefits like obamacare for others. What a self-serving hypocrite!!!

    Obamacare created 111 new federal agencies and 159 new boards and commissions by April 23, 2010….

    In some cases, just one single federal agency spread out across our nation can cost into the multi-billions figuring things like personnel depts, buildings, regular employees, investigators, clerical staff, legal staff, office supplies, transportation, and a few hundred other things that don’t come to mind immediately…

      @Communictions Expert,

      I just re-read the bill, I can’t find 111 new federal agencies nor 159 new boards and commissions. Could you please post a link for this information?

      • http://www.facebook.com/sammysings Sammy

        @Bruce, He don’t need no stinkin’ link. Here’s his link: Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Fox News, Fox Nation, Gallagher, Levin, Coulter, Larson, Savage, Ingraham. Lessee, did I miss anyone?

        Here’s a quote from columnist Leonard Pitts Jr.: “When people are determined to believe a lie, there is nothing more futile than the truth.”

    Bachmann’s “nightmare” is a manifestation of the demons lurking within her damaged psyche.

    I was unable to get the reply function to work this morning, so I’ll see if this new one works Bruce…
    I’ll have to look a little further to find the agencies again…
    I did find info on 5 things people have been misinformed on…
    http://money.cnn.com/2009/07/24/news/economy/health_care_reform_obama.fortune/

    Also, I found the link on the 159 new boards and commissions…
    http://projectworldawareness.com/2010/04/health-care-bill-159-new-boards-and-commissions-created/

    Now, I’ll see if I can find the one on new federal agencies…
    This one says the 159 are actually agencies; I’m not really sure who is correct and who is mistaken…
    http://www.saveyourrights.com/…/the-new-labyrinthine-bureaucracy-of-obamacare-159-new-ones-to-streamline-and-decrease-cost-of-healthcare/
    Here is one new federal agency I just found…
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/…office/Executive-Order-Establishing-The-White-House-Office-Of-Health-Reform/
    Here’s another one apparently tied to the “private” federal reserve corporation giving it new widespread powers…
    http://hubpages.com/hub/New-Federal-Consumer-Protection-Agency
    When I used this link I came up with 2.65 million hits, why don’t you use it to see if you can find them all?
    number of new federal agencies created by obama? (google)
    Apparently the link I had before on the 111 has either been taken down, or is now buried amongst many others…
    Have fun…
