Obama mocks Michele Bachmann's worry that Obamacare "literally kills women"

This isn't the first time Barack has made fun of Michele.
During a speech on the House floor in March, Michele Bachmann, referring to the possibility people who rely on their spouses or families for health care might lose their coverage as Obamacare is implemented, offered up this slab of preposterousness:

"That's why we're here because we're saying let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. Let's not do that! Let's love people, let's care about people. Let's repeal it now while we can." (See the video and read our commentary about it here.)

We'd pretty much forgotten all about that, given the dozens of preposterous statements Bachmann has made since then (along with her announcement that she won't be running for Congress again). But President Obama didn't forget.

During a speech yesterday in Maryland, Obama, without naming names, mocked and ridiculed Bachmann's worry that Obamacare could result in the systematic killing of women, children, and the elderly.

Here's what Obama said (via the Star Tribune):
I mean these are quotes. I am not making this stuff up. And here's one more that I've heard. I like this one. We have to, and I am quoting here. We have to 'repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens.' Now I have to say that that one was from six months ago. I just want to point out that we still have women. We still have children, and we still have senior citizens.
Indeed we do. But it should be noted that Obamacare's health insurance marketplaces don't roll out until October 1, and Americans aren't required to have some sort of health care (or face a fine) until next year. In other words, according to Bachmann's logic, women, children, and senior citizens aren't out of the woods yet!

Bachmann literally kills brain cells when her mouth opens.

Well, first of all, Obamacare is not socialized medicine. It is a government mandated health care program. The main issues I have with that (aside from the fact that everyone is still confused about the program itself, how it will actually work, and the long term consequences, including, and especially doctors) is the fact that the Government will determine who can actually "afford" it. So if the Government "decides" that I can afford it, then I will be forced to purchase this program, and if I do not, there will be tax-refund penalty consequences. 

People!

This is not socialism, this is dictatorship! I am beginning to wonder if socialized medicine in this country would be a better option than Obamacare! I work an hourly job, and I currently have affordable health insurance (I am single, have no kids) and I pay about $100/month for single coverage. But, if my employer decides to reduce hours (and word is spreading that they will), not only will my health coverage be gone, so will my 40-hour work week! How is this going to benefit me? I can't afford to live on 29 hours a week. I have fucking bills that I have to pay! I am by no means rich, but I have a $25/hr job. I own a home. If they reduce my hours to 29 a week, I will lose my home that I worked hard to attain. Plus, no health insurance to boot!

Maybe I do not make as much money as those of you who support Obamacare (and most likely will not be affected by it), but there are many of us who WILL. Think about that for a fucking minute! This is going to hurt the middle-class hourly wage tax-paying employees and will only benefit the current Government-dependent parasites.

The line between quoting Rep. Bachmann and mocking Rep. Bachmann is nearly indistinguishable.

Exactly who will be in charge of killing off the women, children and us old farts? Will that be the responsibility of the Death Panels? C'mon Michelle... you always have secret information. Why not share with us? OOPS! Just saw contrail in the sky. Have to get my mask/foil hat on.

I wonder if Obama will mock Nancy "McBotox" Pelosi, when Candy Crowley asked her about the end of the 40-hour work week for many Americans due to Obamacare, she stated that people will have more time to "pursue your happiness … follow your passion.  Overwhelmingly, for the American people, this is a liberation."

ObamaCare is a nighmare!   The Republicrats should not let O delay any portion of it.    Let the electorate feel the pain of this right away.    They know if they do not delay it, the Governmentcrats are done in 2014 mid terms.

We also have been sold a bag of lies in the form of "Change". He was in the right place right time with several policy changes, and the rest he is playing the partisan card on why they are failing. I think Boehner is an idiot, but Obama is not what we thought he was.

One of these days people will realize relying on the government for everything is not in anyone's best interest.

Oh Michele please don't go away baby.   We are going to miss you so much.   America needs your stupid easily mocked pronouncements.   Nothing harms Republicans more than having someone so stupid as one of their main voices.  Don't go aways, I promise to be good to you.   I've always loved you sweetie.   Please don't go.

If your employers uses this excuse to cut your pay and benefits with the same self serving intent that Papa John's John Schnatter did the day after the elections in 2012, then your employers is a THIEF!

Schnatter even LIED to justify his cost increase of $.045 dollars a pie. he CLAIMED that 15 cents would 'bankrupt' this mega multi billion dollar business. The cost of his corporate (private, tax payer expensed) jet is 4 times that and he's not selling it to keep from 'bankrupting' his company.

So the truth is, if your job is so shitty that you HAVE NO JOB SECURITY, why are you blogging and NOT getting your resume` out?

If they cheat you down to 29 hours, you have all that internet time you waste parroting FOX News that could be used to create your own business. hell dude, you can make 10 times what you make now turning "outcall massage" jobs. I mean THAT would be profiting from running your mouth!!!

If this happens to me, maybe I should just take millionaire Nancy Pelosi's advice: It will give me more time to pursue my happiness and passion....which was my dream home which will soon be stolen from me.

@WatusiJenkins hey! I used to be a trucker and rather than kill some lame lane dodging speeder and all the people who would have piled up behind us, I bumped him into a guardrail and mashed up his Mercedes. I'll get My CDL back in another 6 months but I kind of like the small internet business I have built with My 'Passion Time Off"

It's the whining losers like you who are milking the system and blaming everyone else for your failures. Seriously, get a life that works for you man.

@Nathan Conley WOW!  Please explain THIS!

The only rape of women legislated into law is in Evangelical, Pro Zygote, Pro Embryo, Pro Fetus, starve and uneducate all live birth children (real lives boys and girls!) RED States.

Has nothing to do with the PPACA.

@k2yeb Is it possible that WITHOUT a completely, 100% to the last man NO!!! voting Republican Obstructionism...

@k2yeb Great point.  You should move to Somalia and see how you like a weak central government.   It's a Republican paradise.  No taxes.  No gun laws.  No socialism.  Bring your AK 47.

@digitaIprotocol I hear all this talk about small government yet I've never seen it work in the real world.  Can you please provide an example of a libertarian small government paradise?
