In an interview published today on the conspiracy-theory-happy website WorldNetDaily, Rep. Michele Bachmann likens President Obama to a crack dealer, accusing him of trying to “get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.”
The Minnesota congresswoman, who has alleged that Obamacare denies healthcare to conservatives, implements death panels and “literally kills” people, even tried to link health insurance exchanges to supposed ACORN-esque voter fraud in which non-existent people will sign up for insurance to make money.
Apparently, Bachmann is afraid that Americans will like the benefits of the Affordable Care Act so much that it will be “virtually impossible” for Republicans to repeal the reform law.
Pulling no punches, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told WND exactly why she thinks President Obama and Democrats are unwilling to negotiate with the GOP over Obamacare’s well-documented problems.
“I think the reason is because President Obama can’t wait to get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.”
“Because, once they enroll millions of more individual Americans, it will be virtually impossible for us to pull these benefits back from people,” the congresswoman explained.
“All they want to do is buy love from people by giving them massive government subsidies,” Bachmann summed up.
That’s why she wants lawmakers to do whatever they can to stop Obamacare, now.
“If it means delaying it, rather than repealing it. I’m for it. We have to do what we can do.”
Warning they are “making it up as they go along,” Bachmann predicted disaster if Obamacare goes ahead, because, “They’re trying to fly a plane they haven’t even built yet.”
WND asked if she heard concern from constituents over turning giving health and financial information to the government?
“Oh, yes. People are extrmely nervous, especially after all of the NSA issues earlier this year.”
“People don’t trust government, at all,” she added. “They don’t trust government’s ability not to be hacked, but they also look at a federal government that would intentionally misuse their data.”
The congresswoman told WND she had learned during a briefing that the navigators, or assisters, who will be signing up people for Obamacare “will be getting something like $59 a head for the people that they sign up. ACORN did that.”
“ACORN signed up Donald Duck and Minnie Mouse,” just making up names, “so people could make money. It was meant to be a scam.”
ACORN, the community organizing and voter-registration organization that Obama worked for in the 1990′s was disbanded after massive allegations of voter law violations and at least 54 ACORN employees and individuals associated with ACORN were convicted of voter fraud.
“We know people will get signed up in a fraudulent way. That’s why President Obama has already waived or deleted 19 different areas for Obamcare. Because they make it up as they go along.”
Bachamann insisited it is “unconstitutional for the executive to rewrite laws at will and spend money that Congress doens’t authorize. That’s competely [sic] unconstitutional.”
“Remember, we were lied to by the president. He told us abortion will not be funded. It is. We were told sterilizations, contraceptives, all that, we were told wouldn’t be part of the bill. It is. So, almost every promise the president has made has turned out to be false.” The tea party rock star declared, “Now is the time to put it out of its misery.”
“I am the author of the bill to repeal Obamcare, we’ve done that (the House has passed it) several times. We have to do what we can do. Whether that means defuding it instead of repealing it, I’m for it. If it means delaying it, rather than repealing it. I’m for it.”
“Whatever we can do to relieve the suffering of this economy and the American people.”
