Michele Bachmann wants to be prez so she can kill "the crown jewel of socialism"
Unlike Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann can answer the question of why she's running for president with one made-up word: Obamacare.
In an interview with CNN, America's Craziest Congresswoman called Obama's healthcare program "the crown jewel of socialism" and said that anyone who is running for president as a Republican has to want to be "committed to take that thing out."
Here's the quote:
"We need someone who is committed to taking that thing out," she continued, referring to Obama's health care law, "because it is the crown jewel of socialism, and if it's allowed to stand we will never get our country back."
