Bachmann: Miracle from God will force Obama to sign Obamacare repeal [AUDIO]
We'll see if Barack is still smiling after God forces him to renounce his signature piece of legislation.
No doubt, God, assuming He exists, is powerful. But is He powerful enough to convince President Obama to repeal Obamacare?
According to Michele Bachmann, you betcha He is!
Last week, a Bachmann-sponsored bill to repeal Obamacare passed the GOP-controlled House in a 229-195 vote, but the measure stands no chance of success in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
Unless, of course, God intervenes.
Here's a transcript of what Bachmann had to say this morning about her rationale for pushing Congress's 37th (we're not making that number up) Obamacare repeal bill during an appearance on James Dobson's radio show, followed by the raw audio (h/t: Right Wing Watch):
That's why you saw the House of Representatives pass my bill, the full repeal of Obamacare last week, and that's why I have renewed confidence that we can see this bill pass in the Senate and I think the President will ultimately be forced to repudiate his own signature piece of legislation because the American people will demand it.
And I think before his second term is over, we're going to see a miracle before our eyes, I believe God is going to answer our prayers and we'll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare. I believe that's going to happen and we saw step one last week with the repeal of Obamacare in the House. We have two more steps. We serve a mighty God and I believe it can happen.
We're not sure what's more unlikely -- that Alexandria-area tea partiers' prayers will convert George Soros to Christianity, or that Bachmann's will compel God to get serious about doing what He can to get her long-sought Obamacare repeal done.
