Bachmann: It's time to 'slit our wrists, be blood brothers' to fight health care reform
In Rep. Michele Bachmann's latest anti-health care reform rant, she came up with yet another money quote we just couldn't let slip by. Because there is really no better way to fight health care reform than to share blood with others. It's a really good idea, folks.
Bachmann spoke to a Denver gathering sponsored by the Independence Institute last night and sure got the crowd pumped up. She claimed the reform proposals "have the strength to destroy this country forever."
"This cannot pass," Bachmann said according to the Colorado Independent report. "What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass."
Last month, Bachmann held a telephone town hall with abortion opponents and said the health care reform "battle will be won - on our knees in prayer and fasting."
More intelligent discussion and less crazy talk might do our country some good.
