Kevin Diaz needs to get a life! Bachmann "battered" by legal and ethic charges? In what world is that? I think Ted Mondale was battered. Bachmann is riding the wave, and it is a wave engulfing a battered administration.....or had Diaz missed those stories?

As of 2012, long after health care reform was the law, these votes to repeal Obamacare have cost taxpayers close to $50 million dollars. When it comes to wasteful government spending, this has got to top the list. The GOP oligarchy at its hypocritical best.

Courage and leadership are evident when someone does the right thing despite overwhelming pressure to go along with the crowd. The press make the Iowa issue seem huge, when it is not, while giving Obama a pass on obtaining the phone records of the Associated Press reporters, Benghazi where an Ambassador was murdered along with three other Americans and the IRS scandal that targeted political groups that are not happy with Washington. Obamacare was the worst legislation passed into law, possibly in the history of this Nation. Good for Michelle and the other Republicans for refusing to give up the good fight.

Do the people in the house who bring this vote up every 15 minutes ever wonder why their approval rating in the US is about a half a percent higher than al Quaeda's?

La Michele had trouble getting re-elected in a predominantly Republican district. No wonder she's shooting her mouth off; she's desperate!

37 failed attempts and how many dollars and how much time wasted? To be proud of such unrelenting FAILURE shows the true nature of Ms Bachmann and her supporters. Party affiliation aside, leading 37 wasted attempts is nothing for anyone to be proud of, ever.
