    And that won't get gas under 2 a gallon, certainly not during a Bachmann presidency and not later when it really gets going either. Come on, how do you get 2 a gallon gas in no more than 8 years?

    medicaid is generating tremendous costs, including high inflation costs for poor people, but they are hidden at "the pump" to appear free.

    Medicaid is free for the people who receive it.

    if people don't pay for it through taxes or out of pocket, its free.

    this is not a difficult concept.

    You can prove that, right? There's evidence that there's no way it can happen?

    Whether there's any real proof that you're right, not; why not give it a shot? We've seen the effect that doing nothing has had on the price of gas.

    Again, think of the jobs.

    Re: Bachmann: I'll get gas under $2

    Usually, politicians are not as concrete nor specific with their pandering. Usually, they're loath to lose their plausible deniability or wiggle room in their statements and promises.
    So I'll give her credit where it is due.

    But, I find the claim highly dubious. So much so that I suspect Bachmann of not planning on being PotUS.

    I may be wrong.
