Michelle Bachmann shows leadership and fearlessness
Today we learned that no less than 111 companies, universities, and unions received waivers that exempt them from participation in Obamacare. As Michelle Bachmann pointed out today in a press conference on Capitol Hill, this is because everybody knows that Obamacare is unaffordable, it kills jobs, and drives up the price of health care to the point that many employees will have to be dropped entirely from their employer's health care rolls.
But this is old news to conservatives. My question is where is party favorite Jeb Henserling and why is the girl, who GOP leadership passed over for him, out there doing all the heavy lifting on this? I guess railing against the single worst piece of legislation in modern history is beneath GOP leadership and should be left to the tea-party rabble like Bachmann. After all, after one publicly eviscerates the President over his signature bill, one can't expect to receive many invitations to hoity-toity DC cocktail parties, now can one?
