Michele Bachmann continues to lead fight against ObamaCare
Obamacare is by and far a national disaster and one of the worst policies in our nation's history, and the worse is yet to come. Michele Bachmann is the chairwoman of the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives and a Teaparty favorite. She has been at the forefront of the Obamacare repeal movement and she continues to highlight the devastating impact of its implementation.
Bachmann's latest bill is titled “To repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010,” Michele has taken up the fight once again upon returning to Congress. Michele has led a coalition that has resulted in Speaker Boehner voting to repeal Obamacare 33 times since it was signed. The Senate led Democrats have killed all House bills.
Below are a few articles and updates recommended via Michele Bachmann's weekly newsletter. Please read and continue to show steadfast support of our shared conservative values and opposition to the Socialist Govt takeover of our healthcare system.

The Washington Examiner, February 7: Byron York: With public focused on jobs, Washington fights other fights
"A new survey on the effects of the economic downturn shows many more Americans than previously reported have been profoundly touched by joblessness and its related hardships.
In addition, the survey, by scholars at Rutgers University, shows more Americans than previously thought blame illegal immigration for the problem of unemployment -- more than blame Wall Street bankers, or George W. Bush, or Barack Obama.
So what is Washington doing amid these deep economic anxieties? Working on a bipartisan plan that would begin with the mass, immediate legalization of illegal immigrants, before any border security or enforcement measures."
The New York Times, February 7: Obama Plans Fund-Raising Trips to Aid Senate and House Candidates
"The president, who has a vested interest in Democrats retaining their Senate majority and trying to narrow Republican control of the House, is already making plans to return to the campaign trail. He has agreed to hold at least 14 separate fund-raising events this year, a Democratic official familiar with the plans told The New York Times, characterizing it as an 'aggressive schedule.'"
