We demand an apology and retraction from Michele Bachmann for her lies.
Michele Bachmann has asked her followers to sign a petition to demand Joe Biden apologize for referring to the tea "party" as terrorists. We believe that Michele Bachmann owes everyone, the informed and the fooled, an apology for lying to us. We believe that she must actually read and repeat the truth to the "party" she has lied to. The following is a simple list of lies that we demand she apologize for and publicly correct in order to remove the tarnish she has placed on her "party". Blatant Lies: "Secretary Geithner has left the option on the table" of abandoning the dollar for a multinational currency. ACORN "could get up to $8.5 billion more tax dollars despite being under investigation for voter registration fraud in a dozen states." Ezekiel Emanuel, one of President Obama's key health care advisers, "says medical care should be reserved for the nondisabled. So watch out if you're disabled." "President Obama's bill won't bring down the costs (of health care) for average Americans -- or really for very few Americans, if any." "The New England Journal of Medicine released a survey the week that President Obama signed Obamacare stating that over 30 percent of American physicians would leave the profession if the government took over health care." “Social Security, like I told you, is out of money. This year it is borrowing from the general treasury.” "The president of the United States will be taking a trip over to India that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day." The government will "go out and buy my breast pump for my babies." "The top 1 percent of income-earners pay about 40 percent of all taxes into the federal government." "The president released all of the oil from the Strategic Oil Reserve." "If you threw a barbecue yesterday for the Memorial weekend, it was 29 percent more expensive than last year because Barack Obama's policies have led to groceries going up 29 percent." "My husband and I have never gotten a penny of money from the farm." * http://www.politifact.com/personalities/michele-bachmann/statements/byruling/false/ * Pants on fire: "One. That's the number of new drilling permits under the Obama administration since they came into office." Small businesses that have "$250,000 in gross sales for the business. They're the ones that are looking at massive tax increases." "Speaker Pelosi ... has been busy sticking the taxpayer with her $100,000 bar tab for alcohol on the military jets that she's flying." Page 92 of the House health care bill "says specifically that people can't purchase private health insurance after a date certain." ACORN will be a paid partner with the Census Bureau and "they will be in charge of going door-to-door and collecting data from the American public." Says the Constitution only requires her to tell the census "how many people are in our home." In the 1970s, "the swine flu broke out . . . under another Democrat, President Jimmy Carter." * http://www.politifact.com/personalities/michele-bachmann/statements/byruling/pants-fire/ *
