Michelle Bachmann "Next week we will introduce a bill to repeal Obamacare"
Maryland Right to Life's Third Annual Banquet ^ | 5/8/2013 | My Own Eyes and Ears

Posted on 05/08/2013 7:52:07 PM PDT by icwhatudo

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! :)

I kind of want to see the Democrats double down and save Obamacare -- "We like it! We voted for it! Twice!! It's ours! All ours!!!"

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.

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.

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 Bachmann's motives are pure, but Boehner's are not. He does not want to repeal it, and he will fight hard against any Republican effort to repeal it. This vote, he knows, is purely symbolic, because it will never even come to a vote in the Senate, and so it gives Republicans, true conservatives and phony alike, the ability to say they voted against Obamacare.

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.

The Dems are already getting really, really nervous about Obamacare (that ‘train wreck’ comment got traction!) and the last thing they want is to have to vote for it again. Michelle can cause some mischief with a repeal bill. Of course, Obama won’t sign it (& won’t pass the Senate), but I’m all for making the Democraps squirm as much as possible. The Repubs should be made to squirm & pay the piper as well for not defunding the monster - it is killing America economically & soon, will be killing Americans via actual healthcare policies.

I don't think so. The House budget is the "Ryan budget" and he claims that there are no dollars in it for Obamacare.

In any event, the Conference Committee -- if there is one -- won't agree on a budget. That will leaves things as they are -- the government expenditures operating on autopilot, controlled only by the Current Services Baseline.

That's the way Harry Reid and the 'Rats want it.

Surprised at all the PhonyCon Liberals on here denouncing Bachmann and her proposed Kill ObamaCare Bill

It will at least put on record who is for, and, against ObamaCare

Sorry Folks... I’m with Mark Levin on this one....

I find it very difficult to stomach a bill from republicans to repeal Obamacare when they have supported and voted for multiple bills to fund Obamacare since it was implemented.

This is NOTHING but an attempt by republicans to regain favor.

It is evidence to me that the republicans are sensing the massive disconnect they have brought upon themselves by disenfranchising their own constituents to maintain their political clout in the halls of congress.

They know damn well that their “repeal” bill won’t see the light of day in the senate let alone a signature from the destroyer in chief.

Maybe they should start taking notes from Cruz.

Maybe we might notice them like we are noticing him now if they FOLLOW his lead.

Well, don’t compare the House with the Senate is the first rule. Yes, the Republicans could and should stand up for their part in allowing this monstrosity to come to a vote in the first place!

But... if you are going to actually place blame on anyone it should be on Reid who used unethical practices to allow this bill to pass without any Republican votes at all.

So yes, you can say that Republicans allowed this crap to pass but at least allow that most Republicans tried to stop it.

While I don’t have any sympathy for these folks that let it get that far, it is now law (thanks to a Supreme Court that does not understand the Constitution) but it can still be changed thank goodness and it will!...eventually if only to save the country (even the Democrats will eventually agree).

It starts here and will eventually become a full blown effort by both Republicans and Democrats to change this thing dramatically. If not repeal, it will look nothing like it does today!

Unfortunately, it may happen too late to save the Country from going into unsustainable debt! Only factual evidence many times over will persuade the Democrats though...

Ah yes, and I’m sure she regrets it at this point! You do have to look at the politics a bit (as crappy as that is) and understand that these folks thought that Boehner was the conservative leader that they wanted. I would imagine that she has also been disappointed so don’t lay it all onto her.

She maybe she should apologize for her vote here but would that really make a difference now? Time to get Boehner out of office and get a real Republican into the leadership. That is what she should be pushing for - also!

Nor do I sir! Have almost given up on the Republican Party these days. Seems that they are too much like the Democrats only a bit less big government (but not enough by a long shot).

Well, actually, have given up on them - have not voted for the last couple elections just because they have not inspired any difference between them and the Democrats!

It is a sorry state of affairs these days...

Defunding it is what they should be doing.

To do that you would have to get Boehner the crying buffon to go along with it, and he won't.

I’m tired of symbolic gestures. We all know the House could repeal, we all know the Senate will not repeal, and we all know the thug in our White House will not sign a repeal even if it gets there. So lets stop pretending and start governing.

Plan A: De-fund ObamaCare. Let the minority who support this giveaway see that it’s not really going to happen (thank God!). Then after a year or two with no funding for the fiasco or for its enforcement, then repeal that monstrosity. We don’t need to score political points for pretending to repeal it when that’s not practical. We need to kill that evil program before it kills us, and giving the democrats cover for killing it “it was failing anyways” is the best way to kill it.

Plan B: slip a repeal into a gigantic conference bill without telling anyone at all. The House and the Senate will approve it, the druggie will take a moment away from golf to sign it, and then we’re free when someone mentions “oh, by the way” a couple days later. I like “Plan B”.

People’s understanding of Obama care is changing, besides there are some new faces that need to go on record regarding the issue.

Whoa! You misunderstand me. I'm not blaming the Republicans, at all. I was, in fact, defending them. I was responding to a poster who claimed that the Republican House should've passed a repeal vote years ago -- which, in fact, they did.

Except for Olympia Snowe's misguided vote for Obamacare in committee, I'm aware there wasn't a single GOP vote for the abomination.

And, yes, the House's repeal vote will die in the Senate -- because Harry Reid (and the Democrats) won't even bring it to a vote.

When you attempt to assassinate the king and fail, then you must retreat and show homage in order to survive. She was not the only one to knuckle under, Boehner already had her on his hit list for daring to attempt to defund ObamaCare.

Where I find fault with all the cowards who know that Boehner is in the tank on ObamaCare and refuse to publicly make a stand against the leadership[.
