I know it’s not sporting or even reasonable to expect Michelle Bachmann to make sense, but this was just too good not to pass along. In her floor speech just now, the good congresswoman from Minnesota just appealed to her colleagues to vote down health reform because “our forebearers are crying out for us to preserve their freedoms.”
This raises some fascinating philosophical and theological questions: Do we still need health care after we die? Maybe in hell, but not in heaven? Does God offer a choice between health savings accounts and a single-payer system? Or is that instead of fire and brimstone, hell is listening to health reform debates for all of eternity? It sure seems like it after today.
