Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann spoke tonight at Maryland Right to Life's Third Annual Banquet just outside Baltimore and announced that a bill to repeal Obamacare will be introduced next week.
Bachmann stated that every Republican in the House is expected to support the bill. She started off her remarks by complimenting Baltimore on being the home of crab cakes, the Super Bowl champions (which drew cheers) and Nancy Pelosi (which drew jeers). She told the crowd "2 out of 3 isn't bad".
Her remarks mentioned the horrors revealed by the Gosnell trial and how the media wanted to pretend it was an "isolated incident" much in the way they try to make every Islamic terrorist bombing seem like an "isolated incident" but we know the truth.
She talked about the story in the Bible of the woman using expensive oil on Jesus and how some complained that it was a waste. She wanted the crowd to know that their time money and efforts to promote the Pro-life cause, even when hitting a wall of opposition, is never a waste. Ignore the critics and do what is right.
Bachmanns comments came after a short speech by Maryland's lone conservative congressman-Andy Harris. Harris, a doctor whose wife Cookie is very active in the Pro-life movement, also spoke about the Gosnell trial. Along with other Pro-life Republicans, Harris has been talking about the Gosnell trial on the floor of the House in an effort to get more media attention on the issue.
Forgot to mention: The new pro-life club from Johns Hopkins (That the college originally tried to ban) was in attendance and was a big hit!
“Ignore the critics and do what is right.”
Let’s demand that be tattooed on the backside of EVERY Republican currently on our payroll! :)
Because there will be a reckoning, and if it comes too soon, some folks might conclude that Obamacare was just an honest mistake by good-hearted Democrats. And it wasn't.
Let’s hope & pray this catches on
Defunding it is what they should be doing. Repeal has been tried and goes nowhere.
Bravo Ms. Bachmann!
I guess she got tired of waiting for the Republican ‘leadership’ to take a stand.
Michelle - when you have time, maybe you could show the other Republicans how to be men. We’d appreciate it.
Repeal in the House is as meaningless as Clinton’s impeachment. Stop the funding, but Boehner says “no” on that one.
I agree with both of you.
Make the D’s vote for it again. Paint them into a corner.
In the mean time, defund here, defund there to gum up the works (that won’t take much).
But to repeal? It’s got as much of a chance clearing the Senate as Obama’s budget does in the House.
They've funded it already a couple of times via the Continuing Resolution. I'll believe they're serious when the pull the plug on the money.
Didn’t we already do this? It’s not getting passed unless we take the senate.
It’s politically valuable as a campaign attack theme against incumbent democrats for the 2014 midterms, which will be ramping up before much longer.
EXACTLY. This is a Cantor-stunt to give Ruling Class GOPers 'cover' with the TEA Party whom many of the Ruling Class hacks have to 'suck up to' this election cycle upcoming.
Screw this. It's political theater.
If they were serious about repeal they would have begun defunding it. But no. They have funded it in-full to our economic demise.
Michelle needs to introduce a bill to repeal Obama.
Why is everyone cheer leading what should have been done in the first place!
To be truly against Obamacare, you would have to refuse to fund it in the budget, and not give in on that when going to conference with the Senate. But the House budget funded it, as I recall.
They DID do it in the first place. In fact, an Obamacare repeal was the first act passed by the new House after the 2010 election.
Sent to the Senate, the bill died. Just like this one will.
It doesn’t matter, Michelle.
Defund it. Don’t waste my time with pointless votes that achieve nothing.
I ain’t buying this crap anymore.
