Michele you are better off taking care of paying back the money you owe in your failed Presidentail run than dishing out financial advice related to health care.

More lies. Hopefully the only thing Bachmann will be moving forward is her feet in the unemployment line.

Congresswoman Bachmann has not offered any meaningful alternative for people who cannot afford health insurance. Does anyone really believe the free marketplace will accommodate non group middle aged customers with pre-exiting conditions? Not a chance!!! Minnesota has elected our nations #1 fear monger and naysayer and many good people will suffer because of her rhetoric.

For god sakes it's not unprecedented. It's happened twice before in 1792 by the 1st President of the United States and then again in 1798 by the 2nd President of the United States. Both of whom wrote our constitution and for some reason didn't think that it was all that unconstitutional.

While Bachmann provides some good insights, the biggest failure is: Obamacare will further explode healthcosts. We are at 2.6 trillion/yr and over 20% per year is needlessly wasted on defensive medicine. If one really followed the USPTF recommendations, probably 40% of our health spending is wasted. As usual, Owebama talked the talk on tort reform, but..........he spends, spends, spends and nothing gets done.

I can hardly wait until my son is kicked off my insurance and my pre-existing conditions disqualify me from my own coverage. Outstanding job, republicans. I trust that the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans like me will pay you back accordingly this November.

For most of her adult life Congresswoman Bachmann has received a government salary, government paid health care and she, her husband and family have received government subsidies. Her hypocrisy has no limit.

"For most of her adult life Congresswoman Bachmann has received a government salary, government paid health care and she, her husband and family have received government subsidies". Ted Kennedy was on the government payroll his ENTIRE life and enjoyed everything else you claim Bachmann enjoys. So what?
