During an appearance on Dr. James Dobson's 'Family Talk' radio show today, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said that "God is going to answer our prayers and we'll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare" (audio below), reports RightWingWatch.org.
Rep. Bachmann could not prove that God opposes Obamacare, which will help provide health insurance to millions of Americans, will no longer allow health insurance companies to discriminate against pre-existing conditions, will allow children to stay on their parents' health insurance until they are 26 and provides preventive health care with no co-pay.
Dr. Dobson parroted a false right wing claim that the IRS would somehow deny health care to conservatives, for which he presented no proof.
Neither Rep. Bachmann nor Dr. Dobson made mention of the fact that there are over 30 million Americans without access to health care or that medical care costs are the leading cause of bankruptcy for Americans, per Bloomberg Businessweek.
Instead, Rep. Bachmann insisted her bill to repeal Obamacare, the 37th passage of the repeal in the House, would be used by God to repeal Obamacare in the Senate and by President Obama himself.
"That's why you saw the House of Representatives pass my bill, the full repeal of Obamacare last week, and that's why I have renewed confidence that we can see this bill pass in the Senate and I think the President will ultimately be forced to repudiate his own signature piece of legislation because the American people will demand it," said. Rep. Bachmann.
"And I think before his second term is over, we're going to see a miracle before our eyes, I believe God is going to answer our prayers and we'll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare. I believe that's going to happen and we saw step one last week with the repeal of Obamacare in the House. We have two more steps. We serve a mighty God and I believe it can happen."
