Bachmann To Activists: Slit Our Wrists And Become Blood Brothers Against Obama’s Health Care

Stephen Elliot

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) spoke yesterday to the right-wing Independence Institute, the Colorado Independent reports, and she called on conservative to really come together in the fight against President Obama on health care.

“What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing,” said Bachmann. “This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn’t pass.”

The sanguinary rhetoric continued. “Right now, we are looking at reaching down the throat and ripping the guts out of freedom,” she said. “And we may never be able to restore it if we don’t man up and take this one on.”Bachmann also denounced a system under which some Americans pay half their income in taxes: “It’s nothing more than slavery.”
