Michele Bachmann Calls on Dayton to Change Course Away from ObamaCare

Bachmann Calling For ObamaCare RepealSt. Paul, MN, Jan 24 - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) joined her state legislative colleagues today at the Minnesota State Capitol to urge Governor Mark Dayton to work on bipartisan healthcare solutions rather take Minnesota down the job-destroying road of ObamaCare.
State legislators present with Bachmann were Senator Warren Limmer (SD-32), Senator Ted Lillie (SD-56), Senator Gretchen Hoffman (SD-10), Representative Bruce Anderson (19A) and Representative Bob Dettmer (52A).

Excerpt of Bachmann’s remarks prepared for delivery:

“All across the country we’re seeing that ObamaCare is driving up healthcare costs. Insurance premiums are rising. Bureaucrats are starting a process that will expand the list of minimum benefits insurance companies must offer. That will raise the price of health insurance and take away consumer choice.

“Serious steps are being taken to stop this job-destroying legislation that will cause healthcare costs to rise exponentially. Yet here in Minnesota, Governor Dayton is unyielding in his desire to fully commit our state to it.

“We are here this morning to call on the Governor to change course.

“If Governor Dayton truly believes that cutting spending and shrinking the size of government are complex issues, then how can he not at least withdraw his Executive Order [that will expand medical assistance, ensnare the state in ObamaCare, and cost Minnesotans millions of dollars], sit down with these lawmakers, and work on the kind of bipartisan healthcare solutions that will not add to our state’s $6 billion deficit.”
