Bachmann: Health care bill the "socialization of America," liberty vs. tyranny

itemprop

The Washington News Observer posted an interview with Rep. Michele Bachmann about the health care bill and managed to get some pretty money quotes to come out of her mouth. Not like it's really that hard to do so if you have a camera running and let her go off on her rants.

And if you listen to her interview, it seems like Bachmann wants all of us to drop what we are doing and come to Washington, D.C. pronto. Or else our country is screwed.

Some highlights:

  • "This is socialization of America if this bill goes through."
  • "This is it for freedom. If you believe in liberty and if you're rejecting tyranny, this is it ... What will it be? What will they choose?"
  • "There's only one thing they want and that's government takeover of health care. It has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with government owning and controlling more of this economy. That's not what the American people want."
  • "The bill says government has more control, the people have less. It will cost the American people more, government is going to go into bankruptcy. These are not good options for us. That's why everyone needs to come to Washington next week."
