On Jan. 3, which marked the beginning of the 113th Congress, Michele Bachmann (R) revealed that she had filed the first bill of the new legislative session, the Huffington Post reports. This is just a continuation on the numerous efforts of House Republicans to repeal the Obamacare bill.
On Thursday she tweeted:
"At noon today, I introduced the first bill of the 113th Congress to repeal Obamacare in its entirety."
Previous attempts (33 times) at a repeal have been dismissed by the Senate, which is essentially ran by the Democrats.
Bachmann's announcement and her repeated efforts to repeal Obamacare is widely criticized. Her controversial declaration comes a few days after a failed Congress attempt at a relief package for Hurricane Sandy victims.
Meanwhile, Bachmann is still pushing forward with her so-far failed efforts to dismantle President Barack Obama's health care reform package. She refuses to accept Obamacare, while other Republicans and GOP governors just accepted the law without further protests.
It seems most Americans are content with Obamacare, based on a recent survey which showed only a third of Americans were in favor of eliminating the law.
