Michelle Bachmann Attributes Fight Against Obamacare to Her ‘Born Again’ Christian Nature (VIDEO)

Michele Bachmann created quite a stir in a speech on the House floor this Thursday when she said it was her “duty as a believer in Christ” to repeal Obamacare before “it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens.”

“The American people, especially vulnerable women, vulnerable children, vulnerable senior citizens, now get to pay more and get less,” Bachmann said. “That’s why we’re here because we’re saying let’s repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens!”

“Let’s not do that!” she exclaimed. “Let’s love people, let’s care about people. Let’s repeal it now while we can.”

Bachmann then rationalized her fight against Obamacare due to the fact that she is a “born again believer in Jesus Christ.”

“And I believe, as part of my duty as a believer in Christ and what he has done for me, that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst,” she said. “That’s my personal belief and my personal conviction. And that’s why I want our government to create the space so that we can help people, because I’ll guarantee you one thing Mr. Speaker, this doesn’t help people.

  1. If you are so concerned about vulnerable women and their health care why did you vote to defund Planned Parenthood?

  2. Michelle quotes ” that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst.” Well that’s not how the Republican Tea Party politicians do. They are the very same ones cutting the safety nets for those who need it the most. They have cut schooling and medical help, heating assistance for the elderly and disabled, food programs, safety programs like police and firefighters, so the rich can be gifted almost the same amount of money they have taken from the programs that the people work and pay for into. We the little people get the bill to bail out millionaire and billionaire bankers and Wall Street and they get more money for their yearly income than the previous years, even after they ruined the economy.

    I have seen how well these Republican Tea Party operate and it certainly is not for “WE THE PEOPLE.” but rather for the top 1% and large corporations. We can do much better without them. Especially those whose IQ’s match Ms. Bachmanns or lower.

  3. Rep. Bachmann, where you for the 240 years that there was no universal health care? As a medical provider, this coverage means tha I will get about 80% reimbursement instead of the 55% I currently receive. For me, this is a Godsend

  4. Check your facts Michele and read the bill. Men, women, children and seniors are saved . I’m not a born again Christian. I would greatly appreciate you leaving any religious values out of Government and Healthcare.

  5. Wait…where are poor women and children supposed to go to get healthcare? I mean…where the fuck do they go now you stupid twat on a stick?

    Does the GOP actually understand that by not helping poor people deal with poverty you aren’t actually HELPING them?

    Could you imagine a GOP lifeguard at a community pool? He see’s a child struggling in the deep end, spends five minutes blaming Planned Parenthood, spends another five minutes trying to repeal Obamacare, spends 10 minutes after that telling everyone at the pool that if we still had prayer in school that the child would know how to swim because he had prayer in school and he didn’t drown. By the time the kid is dead and floating, the Republican life guard is yelling at her to swim harder. When the EMTs get there and pronounce the child as drowned, the GOP lifeguard blames Democrats for creating the pool. He promptly proposes eliminating the Capital gains tax as a way to create new companies because inevitably one of the new companies might produce floaties…which could have saved the little girl’s life.

  6. Um, no. This woman is the worst kind of Christian. She knows not what her own belief system demands of her. She has no clue what the Bible says. She uses God and Jesus as a manipulation tool to get what she wants. She is what the Bible calls … a fool.
