Michele Bachmann: ACA will be repealed because "God listens to his people"

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has seemingly devoted her entire life to repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. She has lead the vote in the House of Representatives to overturn the law over forty times since its passage, has vowed to vote "no" on any and all legislation unless it includes language which explicitly repeals the act, and during a 2013 interview with James Dobson, insisted that "God will answer our prayers" to overturn the law, all seemingly with no motivation whatsoever except to push America for voting for a Democrat.

In a recent interview with another avid extremist, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association, Bachmann renewed her faith that her almighty flunky in the sky will overturn the law for her.

"God listens to his people and I think if believers humble themselves, confess their sins, and pray, I think God hears from us, hears our hearts and He moves, He moves in miraculous ways," said Bachmann.

Bachmann stated that she expects to "see a very strong election result this fall, both in terms of winning over the Senate and holding on to the House" and, more importantly, that Hillary Clinton will not win the White House in 2016.

"It isn't a guarantee," she said. "We've got to do a lot of work between now and then, particularly on our knees in prayer."

Of course, Bachmann also insisted that God told her to run for president in 2012. You might recall that "God" didn't do her any favors by that.
