Bachmann On Climate-Change Bill: “We Choose Liberty, Or We Choose Tyranny”

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) took to the House floor this evening, in order to make what may be the strongest Republican argument there is against the climate-change bill — that it represents a full-scale takeover of “every aspect” of people’s lives by a tyrannical government:

Bachmann recited various statistics about how awful the bill would be. “But what is worse than this is the fact that now because of this underlying bill, the federal government will virtually have control over every aspect of lives for the American people,” she said. “It is time to stand up and say: We get to choose. We choose liberty, or we choose tyranny — it’s one of the two.”
