Michele Bachmann: Critics of Gov. Healthcare Will ‘Get on a List’

February 2, 2010

(ChattahBox)— There is no end to the paranoid right-wing ranting of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). Her wild accusations and outright lies, have run the gamut from accusing President Obama of perpetrating a plot to “effectively nationalize energy” and starve “freedom loving Americans,” and of creating “re-education camps,” to indoctrinate young people. And she recently urged her constituents to “slit our wrists, be blood brothers” in opposing health care reform. Now, she is back on her campaign against “government run healthcare,” declaring at a recent town hall meeting in her home state of Minnesota that critics of a government healthcare system would be placed on a list and refused medical treatment. Where did the wacky Congresswoman come up with such a preposterous claim? Some unnamed person living under Japan’s healthcare system told Bachmann that’s what occurs in Japan. OK then.

Rep. Bachmann spoke at a meeting held in Rochester, Minnesota, where she advanced her latest fear-mongering on healthcare reform:

“In Japan, people have stopped voicing their opinion on health care…He said it’s because they know that they would get on a list, and they wouldn’t get health care. They wouldn’t get in, they wouldn’t get seen, and so people are afraid, they’re afraid to speak back to government. They’re afraid to say anything. Is that what we want for our future? That takes us to gangster government, at that point.”

Bachmann then continued to rail against the so-called Socialist policies of President Obama:

“We aren’t going to give up. We’re not going to quit fighting because a government takeover of health care is the crown jewel of socialism, and I will fight it until my last breath.”

    Bachmann, you’re already on a list – the list of fat cat rich people who want to have health insurance reserved only for the wealthy. People like you deserve to die in a fire.
