U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann Urges Her Supporters To Fight Obama's Socialized Medicine

Minn. Indep. online.

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann urged her supporters to fight health care reform by calling Congress "every day, when you wake up in the morning and comb your hair and take your vitamins."
Democrats are purposely pushing health care legislation at holiday time, Bachmann charged during a nationwide conference call Thursday. "It's intentional that they're doing this at Christmas time and Hannukah."
"We're going to kill socialism," Bachmann vowed during the call, which was hosted by the Republican National Committee. "They can't have our country. We're not going to let them win."
Bachmann warned that "senior citizens have the most to lose. ... Senior citizens are going to be told 'no' an awful lot more. There will be rationing of health care. ... We have to work hard and pray hard. It's a far easier task to hit these senators hard now [than to repeal health care reform later]."
Bachmann credited her rally on the U.S. Capitol steps last month with giving Republicans in the Senate confidence to resist health care reform. "I went on Sean Hannity's show and asked people to come," she recalled. "This was wildly successful. We had over 20,000 Americans [who came on their own]. I didn't organize a bus or a car. ... It was an electric moment."
After the rally, the "heroes" who attended went to their representatives' offices, she said, and "looked at members of Congress with the whites of their eyes. ... They were quaking in their boots. It sent a huge signal to the Republicans in the Senate."
"It's not inevitable that this is going through. I'm not just puffing smoke here," she said.
Also not inevitable: Republicans regaining the House in 2010. "I am Public Enemy Number One for [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi to defeat next year," Bachmann announced. "We have to win 40 seats back. ... I have to raise $4 million to come back here. It's a huge hill to climb, but it's very possible.
"Then two years later we have to win back the presidency," she said. That will require "a bold conservative who would campaign on repealing this health care bill. ... The road will be very, very difficult to turn it around. I am Pollyanna enough to think that anything's possible."
Turning the tide will require more than Republicans alone. "The lifeblood of this country is conservatism and that lifeblood is awake," said Bachmann. "[It's a coalition of] libertarians, Ron Paul people, Constitution Party. We may agree on 70 percent [of issues]" - and that's enough, she said.
Several times she stressed that the Republican Party was the appropriate vehicle for that movement: "We can do this through the Republican Party. We can agree to disagree. ... The way back is through the Republican Party."
"The number one thing is to fight right now the government takeover of our economy."

To illustrate the scope of that takeover, she cited "an economist from Arizona State University" who calculated that by January 2009, government had already taken ownership or control of 30 percent of our economy.

"Now if President Obama gets his way with health care, that's an additional 18 percent of the economy" - for a total of 48 percent. Cap and trade would add another 8 percent, for 56 percent total. Rep. Barney Frank's bill that the Financial Services Committee votes on tomorrow would raise that another 15 percent for a grand total of 69 percent, she calculated.
"It isn't within our lifetime that we've gone to socialism," Bachmann said. "It's within 18 months!"
"I'm not going to let our 5 biological children and our 23 foster children [live] as slaves going forward," Bachmann said, quickly adding that she didn't mean to belittle actual slavery. She warned: "We will be economic slaves to this federal government. ... President Obama has put us in a dangerous place economically. We will be dead flat broke in eight years."
"These people are not connected to reality," she said, claiming few in the Obama administration have private-sector experience. She quoted Obama as saying, "We've got to spend our way out of the recession," and questioned how someone making $20,000 a year could spend $30,000 a year. "We have a great story to sell - to tell people."
"President Obama is burying us in debt, literally," she said. "You can't drink yourself sober. If you're trying to lose weight, you can't eat yourself thin. ... Normal people have figured this out."

This is what Obama and his henchmen in the US Congress want to destroy. Death Panels is what this Administration and the Kapos in Congress want to institute while excluding themselves from their final solution.

A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want “Universal Healthcare” comparable to England or Canada ..

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, “Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Bachmann is great, I love her intensity and passion. We have several conservatives that have really been speaking out. Thank God for each one of them.

I don't know if we can trust the Republican Party hierarchy. We may be able to stop socialism, but I think it may be through a lot of individual efforts unless we can clean out the Repub Party.

And just who is buying the signature of Obama on the Copenhagen sellout?

Hell no I don't trust the Republican hierarchy, they are the SOB's that got us this Marxist POS.

Bachmann Turner Overdrive in 2012! Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint should be considered!!

I don't know if we need to deal with the hierarchy at all. We support our local candidates, albeit Republicans and see what the Republicans have to offer in the fall of 2012. Hopefully 2010 will show the wigs that we are serious and will not take their RINOs any longer.

However, obama has weakened the congress so much already that it will take a mandate to get our country back. However, if the Party runs a RINO then we will likely go third party and the democrats will clean up, again. Like it or not we are a two party system, we have tried forever to get away from it and it don't work. Roosevelt (TR) proved that in 1912 and gave the election to the democrats, Hence we got the first Progressive idiot, Woodrow Wilson whose ideas are very similar to Hussein's. That's why we must work together to get this current Congress changed and slow down this madness.

Litmus tests, WTF is wrong with getting what we ask for in a representative not what some slithering lizard dick from the fucking primordial swamp of the Democrats wants for us? That is all I ask, or they can keep their goddam Democrats in control, I will not vote for another RINO!!! The RNC might just as well be the DNC, they keep turning out carbon copies of McCain, weasels who are so two faced they look like a fucking groundhog with the mumps!!! I've spent the past 43 years supporting a party of goddam progressives in the hopes they will become pro-American, it hasn't happened. Time to back away and let the facade crumble. The GOP doesn't want change, that's why it fights the third party and the conservatives harder than the Democrats!!! Yeah I'm a little miffed!!!

Thanks for theh links Jack.

It will take a lot for the GOP to bring
those of us around. The most I can do
right now and have been doing is to be
verbally and in print supportive of those
that are conservatives and let them know
they are appreciated. But funds etc. to
the GOP???? NO way!

Speaker Nancy Lugosi Pelosi is 69, Sen "Harry the Mortician" Reid is 70. They should go on their own Obama deathcare plan so they can be deprived of healthcare due to age just like the rest of us and die. According to Dr. Zeke Kervorkian Emmanual, both have led "complete lives" so they need to take a 'pain killer" , go home and die, making room for some 25 year old who busted himself up in a drunken-driving incident.

Also : Jack,Obammy should be required to turn the $1.4 million to the U.S. Treasury. That's the law, but in addition, just think of the "charities" to which Prince Barry "X" would like to donate...
