    Bachmann: Health care law contains $105 billion in hidden pre-approved spending

    As both houses of Congress stood poised in 2010 to sign into law a massive health care bill that few members had read, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously observed, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

    The American people, who then as now disapproved of the plan by a double-digit margin, can’t say they weren’t warned.

    Few, however, were prepared for the extent of the deception embodied in the bill, which Democrats brokered behind closed doors and to the exclusion of members of the opposing party. That became apparent on Sunday, when Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-MN, dropped a bombshell on NBC’s Meet the Press, revealing that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contains over $105 billion in health care appropriations.

    Tell me...

    How come she's the only one who's found it?

    And how is it there's no actual proof of this number in the article?

    Next she'll be accusing the President of spending 200 million dollars a day... WHOOPS!

    Bachman is an idiot. Everyone knows that. Anything she says is worthless.

    That's so funny! Would anyone but a knee-jerk reactionary take Bachman seriously if she said it was raining?

    What makes you think she's the only one who found this pile?

    Given your original post this might be the most ironic post on debate politics.

    Forgive me if I consider a blogger from hotair.com and Bachmann as not the most reliable of sources. I don't trust media matters at their word and the same goes for this tripe. Find a decent source if you want to be taken serious. If not then pull up drudge and feel free to gawk at the over sensationalized headlines all day long. i don't care either way.

    To the libs in here thinking they are funny or something....This is serious business, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid hid appropriations in this law that are illegal, and bypass the legal channels to fund their crap plan. So instead of the usual attacking of the person telling us about what is to be discussed ie: Bachmann can you snarky little libs talk about the 105 billion, you know the actual topic of the thread?
