“A Republican lawmaker and failed presidential candidate compared President Barack Obama to a crack dealer in an interview about the health care law. Rep. Michelle Bachmann told World Net Daily that Obama and Democratic lawmakers refuse to negotiate over Obamacare because they want Americans to become more reliant on the federal government.
““I think the reason is because President Obama can’t wait to get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care,” said Bachmann, who unsuccessfully ran for president in the 2012 Republican primaries.
““Once they enroll millions of more individual Americans, it will be virtually impossible for us to pull these benefits back from people,” said Bachmann, who has not sought re-election in 2014. “All they want to do is buy love from people by giving them massive government subsidies.”
The House Ethics Committee announced recently that it had extended an ongoing review of Bachmann’s campaign finances.
