    Washington, Mar 4 - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) brings light to the $105 billion in government spending that was buried in the ObamaCare legislation which became law last March. Bachmann released the following statement:

    “This is a case of legislative fraud of the highest order. We now know that the ObamaCare bill contained advanced appropriations for use in implementing this massive government takeover of health care. This year alone, the provisions are already in place to spend $5 billion on ObamaCare, and another $100 billion will be spent over the next eight years, even without any appropriating actions by Congress.

    “More and more we are seeing what Nancy Pelosi meant when she said the bill would have to be passed in order for the American people to find out what was in it. The Obama Administration has already added about 6,000 pages of regulations to ObamaCare, and this funding shows a clear intent to circumvent the appropriations process and make it much more difficult for future Congresses to repeal ObamaCare. When it was passed, Democrats knew they would lose the gavel. But this funding ensures they will not lose their prized government takeover of health care because it’s already well-funded.

    Rep. Bachmann Helps Expose Secret Stash of Obamacare Cash

    You’d think that billions of dollars in government spending would be hard to hide, especially from the Members of Congress who voted for it. Think again.

    Buried in the 2,700 pages of last year’s Obamacare legislation lies $105 billion in appropriated funds that bureaucrats are already using to implement Obamacare. On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) brought that news to light when the subject turned to budget cuts.

    This doesn't make up for her stabbing her tea party supporters in the back by voting in favor of "extending" provisions in the misnamed "patriot acts". Some of those supporters are clearly upset about it.

    What do you call a politician without supporters?

    Unemployed.
