Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told Laura Ingraham tonight on The O’Reilly Factor that it will only take fifty plus one US Senators to repeal Obamacare.
“People are angry. They’re shocked. What Americans must realize is there’s one option left, just one option is the ballot box in November and I think more than ever Democrats and independents are going to be looking at a Mitt Romney for president. Because it’s a very clear contrast. It’s Barack Obama and you keep Obamacare or it’s Mitt Romney and you repeal it… And people should’t be fooled to think that we need to have 60 Republican seats in the senate. We don’t. We need fifty plus one. That’s all we need. That’s what the Democrats had wiht the reconciliation bill and we can repeal Obamacare. Don’t give up hope. We can get this done.”
We can hope.
UPDATE: Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli also told Greta Van Susteren tonight that it will only take fifty plus one senators to repeal Obamacare.
