Michele Bachmann: I Lost My Health Insurance Under Obamacare

During a debate between Michele Bachmann and Paul Begala, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Bachmann if she signed up on the exchange yet. In a frustrating tone, Bachmann replied, “Are you kidding. I’m not gonna waste an hour on that thing.”

When Blitzer asked what someone would do if they don’t have insurance, she responded, “I lost my health insurance under Obamacare, and so now I am forced to go into the D.C. health exchange.” She also added that she will wait until the website is done before signing up.

Bachmann then brought up that her husband has some very significant health issues and that they have to have insurance. Begala jumped in to say, “And now you can’t be denied. Thanks Barack Obama! Thank God for Barrack Obama, now you guys can’t be discriminated against.” Bachmann responded back in disagreement, “Actually, we were just fine before.”

She suggested that it’s better to deal with people who have problems instead of destroying the health care system of 300 million people.

When asked again what she will do because she does not have insurance and is not going to the website to sign up, Bachmann replied, “I’m waiting for the thing to get fixed. It’s a mess right now and I’m waiting for it to get fixed. The President promised!”

    OK; let me ask, how did she “LOSE” her health insurance under the ACA. Hell, she makes enough money to pay for health insurance and should not have to go into the DC Exchange (that we are paying for) either. Why did the b—- sign up for it- that’s the question?

      She become unemployed.

      Not sure what she means, ACA hasn’t gone into effect yet.. It doesn’t matter how much you make, your income determines if you get a subsidy or not.
      She is not running for re-election…

    This woman is a millionaire! After drinking from the taxpayer well for the last 7 years, and getting government subsidies for her “farms”, she had profited wonderfully from public service. She can afford any Cadillac coverage she wants. Quitcherbitchin’, Bachmann….man up and pay your fair share. “Bachmann and her husband own a Christian counseling practice named Bachmann & Associates.[44][45] The clinic is run by her husband, who has a PhD with “a concentration in clinical psychology”[46] from Union Graduate School. Marcus Bachmann is not a licensed clinical psychologist in Minnesota.[47] The clinic received nearly $30,000 from Minnesota government agencies between 2006 and 2010 in addition to at least $137,000 in federal payments and $24,000 in government grants for counselor training.[48] When asked about the subject in an interview, Bachmann indicated that she and her husband had not benefited at taxpayers’ expense, saying that “the money that went to the clinic was actually training money for employees”.[49] Marcus Bachmann has denied allegations that Bachmann & Associates provides conversion therapy, a controversial psychological treatment repudiated by the American Psychological Association, which attempts to transform homosexuals into heterosexuals.[50][51] A former client of Bachmann’s clinic and a hidden camera investigator with the activist group Truth Wins Out have said that therapists at the clinic do engage in such practices,[52][53] although columnist Mariah Blake of The Nation has suggested the hidden camera investigator may have been intentionally baiting the therapist to say something controversial.[50] In a subsequent interview with the Minnesota Star Tribune, Marcus Bachmann did not deny that he or other counselors at his clinic used the technique but said they did so only at the request of a client.[37]

    In personal financial disclosure reports for 2006 through 2009, Bachmann reported earning $32,500 to $105,000[49] from a farm that was owned at the time by her ailing father-in-law, Paul Bachmann. The farm received $260,000 in federal crop and disaster subsidies between 1995 and 2008.[54] Bachmann said that in 2006–2009, her husband acted as a trustee of the farm for his dying father and so, out of “an abundance of caution”, she claimed the farm as income in financial disclosures, though it was her in-laws who profited from the farm during that period.[55]”

    Let’s see. You supposedly lost your insurance because of Obamacare. Your husband has very significant health issues, But “Are you kidding. I’m not gonna waste an hour on that thing.” What kind of a moron thinks like that. Wow! your hatred for president blackenstien must be greater than your love for your husband. that is too rich.

    Something smells in this story. She is a Congress person. They have the best insurance available. Although they do have to pay some of it they don’t pay it all. She didn’t lose crap because she is probably on the Federal Employees plan. She has no need for Obamacare and it will cover her husband, too! Duh! How stupid does she really think we are?

    Bachman can pay her own insurance
