Bill Clinton calls Michele Bachmann divorced from reality on health care
Former President Bill Clinton just told representatives of the world's leading economic powers that Rep. Michele Bachmann exists in a parallel universe divorced from reality when it comes to America's position in the world, especially with regards to health care policy.
Clinton takes another shot at Bachmann.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Clinton said that Republicans in Congress are trying to lay the groundwork for the 2012 elections by asserting that "they know America is a truly exceptional country and all these wussy Democrats don't."
Then he singled out the sixth district congresswoman for scorn.
"Michele Bachmann said in her Tea Party response to President Obama, 'Everybody knows we have the greatest health care system in the world," Clinton said. "That is factually untrue. That's not true."
"You can get the best health care in the world in America if you are Bill Clinton, or David Gergen or Turki Faisal, but that's not the same thing as having the best system that works for everybody," he told the audience. "I think what America needs as much as anything else is to stop conducting its politics in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts."
