Michelle "crazy eyes" Bachmann holding health care rally the same day as SOTU
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) announced on Glenn Beck's radio show today that she's organizing a rally at the Capitol for Jan. 27, the same day as the State of the Union address.

She invited "patriots" and members of the public to come and sign a petition, which she called a "declaration of health care independence."

Bachmann is calling this rally a "press conference," apparently to avoid breaking House rules about participating in grassroots lobbying. At her last "house call" tea party in November, Bachmann and the House Republicans who joined her did the same thing.

Bachmann said the declaration says "we reject what they want, this centralized government approach, and what we want is no backroom deals, no political favoritism, no doing a bill behind closed doors. You read the thing before you actually vote on it. Some very simple things: don't add to the crushing debt, don't add to the state crushing debt."

So which ones of us are "Patriots"?

1. I think everyone who signs should be required to give up
Medicare now or in the future.

6. I was discussing this with my son
I told him I thought there should be a way, that we could get the names of all those tea bags who protested "govment" meddling in their business. Take their social security and medicare and give it to those who appreciate government handling of these things. I think also since all of Bachmann's salary and health care are government sponsored lets take heir's away. Boy if I lived in DC I would approach her and ask her why she doesn't give up these government entitlements. And by the way why she took government welfare in her farm subsidies.

10. Go to DC and switch out the petitions - what they sign would automatically assign
their rights to Medicare & Social Security to a person designated by the Secretary of HUD

7. Excellent point. Their ignorance is astounding! Bachmann will be
studied by historians as a woman who swore her allegiance to senseless Right Wing mantras over the US constitution and democracy.
