"Michele Bachmann: Obama Knows Supreme Court Will Find Health Reform Constitutional"

Michele Bachmann spun another conspiracy yarn during a stop in Fort Dodge, Iowa on Saturday, suggesting that the Obama administration is taking the Affordable Care Act to the Supreme Court because it has insider knowledge that the Court will find it Constitutional. “Remember this came at the request of the Obama administration,” she continued. “They’re the ones that favor Obamacare. So if they asked the Supreme Court to fast track this legislation, that tells me they know something that we don’t know. That tells me most likely they think they have five votes to save it or there’s a reason why they want to get it fast-tracked.” To Bachmann’s mind however, that doesn’t mean that the law is in fact constitutional, but rather further vindication that Tea Party activists must fight harder to elect her so that she can repeal it.
