U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said Thursday that it’s time to repeal Obamacare before it literally kills women, children and senior citizens.

“That’s why we’re here: Because we’re saying repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens,” she said on the House floor.

“Let’s not do that. Let’s love people. Let’s care about people. Let’s repeal it now while we can,” added the controversial 2012 presidential candidate.


The outspoken tea party congresswoman is no stranger to hyperbole, especially when it comes to President Obama’s landmark health care bill.

Her comments harken back to 2009, when the bill was still being debated, or last year, when the GOP vowed to repeal it if President Obama lost.

He didn’t, of course, but don’t think that will stop symbolic efforts to overturn it. The Republican-led House has passed bills to do so 30-plus times.

Despite zero chance of success – the Democratic-controlled Senate and White House would also have to sign off – repeal efforts keep on coming.

Michele Bachmann certainly isn’t sounding like she’s moved on.

Should she? Have you? What do you think of Obamacare?
