Michele Bachmann: 'I Lost My Health Insurance Under Obamacare'

Rep. Michele Bachmann, a staunch opponent of Obamacare, says she's lost her insurance under the new law just like millions of other Americans.

Bachmann told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that she'll be forced to shop on the health exchange site, but refuses to do so until the glitches are worked out.

Bachmann told Blitzer on "The Situation Room" that her husband has serious health concerns that require quality insurance. Democratic strategist Paul Begala, who was also on the show, told Bachmann she should be thankful that Obama's healthcare law keeps insurance companies from discriminating against preexisting conditions.

Video at site.

"Are you kidding? Iím not going to waste an hour on that thing," the Minnesota Republican said, referring to the continuous technical problems on the HealthCare.gov site.


Accourding to Politico, Bachmann did not say how she ost the coverage and she didn't say she would sign up for a plan on the insurance exchange site by Dec. 15 to get coverage by Jan. 1.


The health law technically requires congressional staff to buy insurance through the exchange, but it's up to each congressional office to determine who qualifies as official staff, Politico reported.

Yeah, I know - Newsmax, but at least it was reporting a prior Politico story. I love it, Especially when Paul Begala told her that because of the ACA, Marcus' "pre-existing condition" wouldn't keep him from being covered.
