Michele Bachmann urged members of the House to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law today saying that Obamacare “literally kills” people.
Bachman argued that Obamacare makes people “pay more and get less” and said that it doesn’t provide adequate coverage from women, children, and senior citizens.
Bachmann said: “The American people, especially vulnerable women, vulnerable children, and vulnerable senior citizens, now get to pay more and get less. That’s why we’re here. Let’s repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens.”
Bachmann said that Affordable Health Care Act requires employers to provide health insurance to their employees but not to their families and would leave many women without coverage. It would also, according to Bachmann, make it harder for women to buy their own insurance.
Bachmann said: “Where are poor women supposed to go to buy health insurance they can afford? Not in the ObamaCare regime … Where is she supposed to go when her very sick child has lost his health insurance from the employer that his daddy provided for him because his daddy had a job, his daddy had health insurance?”
Here’s a video of Michelle Bachmann speaking on the House floor. Do you think Obamacare will “literally” kill people?
Bachmann was one of many Republicans who spoke on the floor today to mark the third anniversary of of the Affordable Care Act. Republicans have been trying to repeal the bill since it was signed into law in March of 2010.
This is the second this week that Bachmann made the news for making controversial statements. Bachmann led a reporter on a “high speed high-heel” chase yesterday after she made controversial comments about President Obama’s lavish lifestyle.
