Bachmann vents Obamacare outrage and gets it wrong again

Rep. Michele Bachmann says the latest delay in the implementation of Obamacare is just another example of “lawlessness” on the part of President Barack Obama.“Unfortunately, it is the continuation of lawlessness from the administration,” Bachmann told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Wednesday. “The administration gets to have it any way they want to have it. All their promises about Obamacare, completely hypocritical. They didn’t come through, and now this? More of the same.”That’s about the delay that isn’t really a delay, just a grace period for pending applications to be completed. And once again, we’ve got a Republican with reading comprehension problems.
For those wondering—in §1311 of the health law, the HHS Secretary is given the power to set dates for enrollment—so there is your legal underpinning for any date change.
Of course, that’s assuming Bachmann ever bothered to read the law.
