Bachmann seeks health bill repeal
Washington (AP) — It's not even law yet, but U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is already introducing legislation to repeal the health care bill that the U.S. House just passed.
The Minnesota Republican has been one of the bill's most vocal critics. She put out a news release Monday saying she introduced legislation to repeal a bill she described as "arrogant" and a "monstrosity." President Obama is expected to sign the bill Tuesday, with most Democrats touting it as the best progress in decades toward extending health insurance to the uninsured.
Bachmann's opposition to the health bill is a likely issue in her November election. Both her potential Democratic opponents, physician Maureen Reed and state Sen. Tarryl Clark, support the overhaul.
