Bachmann: Prayer and fasting will help defeat health care reform

How in the world did this women get elected...   Everything she is saying has been debunked. Yet.. Here she is, still spewing this mess.. And for some reasons, she has some constiuents who believe her..

Whether you agree with healthcare reform or not.. Whether you agree with the options on the table or not.. At least edcuate and inform yourself of what all is going on..  Why listen to people like this when it's been proven they are full of BS

My faith in the American voter keeps continually eroding away.

On Wednesday Rep. Michele Bachmann was part of a star-studded "teletownhall" meeting to discuss health-care reform. The event, billed "Keeping Faith with the Unborn," was sponsored by the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion advocacy group. The organization's president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, claimed that there were some 350,000 listeners on the line.

Bachmann was joined by North Carolina Rep. Virginia Foxx, most famous for calling Matthew Shepard's murder a "hoax," and former Colorado Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, who made national headlines by refusing to concede after losing her re-election contest November. But even with such veteran political pugilists sharing the phone line, Bachmann managed to distinguish herself during the 90-minute phone call.

The 6th district Republican quoted the late British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, attacked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for receiving political contributions from a medical doctor who was murdered in May, and called on everyone to get down on their knees and pray that health care reform fails. Bachmann didn't always make sense, but she undoubtedly scared the living daylights out of anyone on the line.

Bachmann repeated the myth, adopted early by Sarah Palin, that the health-care plans being debated in Congress would set up "death panels" to determine which old folks are entitled to health care. "Thank God that Sarah Palin said that," she told the callers. "These are true."

In response to a caller from Minnesota who wanted to know if there was a plan afoot in Washington to require all medical doctors to perform abortions, Bachmann didn't exactly shoot the suggestion down.

"Unless we explicitly restrict these items, I think we can fully expect that these radical pro-abortion individuals could very likely make those decisions," she told the caller. "All of us who have labored tirelessly in the pro-life cause for years and years and years, we know what these people are capable of. That's why they have to be tied down by restrictions explicitly in law."

She also suggested that it might be some kind of religious destiny that hardy souls such as herself are in Congress at this time.

"We all need to consider that in God's timing that he may have allowed us, as members of Congress, to be in the position that we're in just for this specific issue right now," she said. "Everything that all of us have worked together and labored for over the years, all of it could be undermined with this one bill. President Obama realizes that. The radicals that are on the pro-abortion left, they realize that. They could win it all. And the unborn, and the vulnerable, the disabled and those at the end of life could lose it it all."

But it was Bachmann's fervent call to utilize prayer and fasting to beat back health-care reform efforts that was the true highlight of the call.

"That's really where this battle will be won - on our knees in prayer and fasting," she told the listeners. "Remember: faith without works is dead. So we're asking you to do all of it: pray, fast, believe, trust the Lord, but also act."

Wow!  I don't even know what to say to that.  What a nut.  Maybe she's been fasting a bit too much and killed off a few too many brain cells.  Now we're going to have a bunch of nuts following in her footsteps and having health issues because of fasting.

And they seem to get crazier and crazier..

The fact that people like her get elected speaks volumes about the American voter in general.

Wow. Just. Wow. 

So, if I don't believe that this is what the healthcare bill is about, that makes me a godless heathen. And a pro-abortionist who also is wishing for the death of disabled and elderly. 

*Sigh* Can somebody tell me how to get out of crazyland?

I've tried clicking my heals 3 times and saying "There's no place like home.. There's no place like home.. There's no place like home."

But everyday when I wake up.. Crazyland seems to have expanded it's borders.

Can you  understand Mrgroc why when people suggest we split this country in half, I am like "HELL YEAH!".

Please please a barrier, any kind of boundary between us and the crazies like that whack job!!
