Bachmann: Repealing Health Care ‘My First Political Breath Every Morning’

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), the Tea Party star and possible presidential candidate, is really determined to repeal health care reform. Indeed, as she told a Montana state GOP dinner on Saturday, it’s “my motivation in life.”

As the Missoulian reports:

“I take my first political breath every morning with one thought in mind – repeal Obamacare,” Bachmann said. “That’s my motivation in life. … This bill is something else. It is the crown jewel of socialism. President Obama, and I’m willing to say it, ushered in socialism under his watch.”

It’s not exactly clear what Bachmann is referring to. How is a health care law based around private insurance corporations a crown jewel of socialism?
