• Michele Bachmann Tries to Kill the Bill with a Single Sheet of Paper


    Let's see… the Senate version of health care reform clocked in at 2,074 pages. The bill the House just passed is even longer, at "about 2,500 pages." No good can come from anything with that many sentences; just ask Leo Tolstoy (or don't, he'd need a second volume to finish his answer).

    Since debate in the House is over and the deal is (mostly) done, the gentlewoman from Minnesota has introduced a bill to "repeal the government takeover of health care," as her press release puts it…

    U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-06) issued the following statement today after introducing legislation to repeal the Democrats' government takeover of health care:

    "It's no secret, President Obama and Democrat leaders have ignored the will of the people and have chosen to ram through their trillion-dollar health care bill despite the American people's overwhelming objection to it. [...] I'm asking my colleagues to join me in repealing this monstrosity of a bill."

    And how many pages does Bachmann's Bill-Killer run? How many?

    One! That's right, bitches! One page, one hundred eleven words (counting "original signature of member" and "111th" and everything). Now that's what God and the Founding Fathers would want. Think about Michele Bachmann's favorite documents: the Bible and the Constitution. Maybe three pages total, combined? I rest my case.
