Completely sane Michele Bachmann and CNN political contributor Paul Begala joined Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s “The Situation Room” to discuss the health care law.
When blitzer asked if she was going to sign up on the exchange, Bachmann replied, “Are you kidding? I’m not going to waste an hour on that!” Michele claimed, offering nothing resembling an explanation of how, that she lost her health insurance because of Obamacare and will be forced into that pit of EVIL that is the DC Health Exchange.
Bachmann launched into a heartbreaking story of how she has a sick (gay hating) husband who needs insuranced up! Begala interjected, “And now you can’t be denied! Thanks, Barack Obama! Thank God for Barack Obama!”
Bachmann shot back, “We were just fine before!“, choosing to ignore the fact that many people were not quite as fine as a monied politician. The word “we,” though, is subject to interpretation based on how little one considers others’ well-being in the scenario.
Despite an explanation that Marcus has serious health problems that require him to be insured, Bachmann said that she is not going “to sit there and frustrate [her]self for hours and hours.” Bachmann has decided that her husband’s purportedly urgent health matters can wait until “they fix this thing.” One must wonder how Marcus must feel, being lower priority than “spending time sitting in front of a computer.”
Watch the “Exchange” (haha) below:
