Slippery Slope

If you were wondering how Michele Bachmann would attract attention now that God has apparently decided otherwise and she won’t be president, here’s your answer.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is warning that the Obama administration’s contraception insurance mandate could put America on a slippery slope — to a totalitarian one-child policy.


“Women have a lot to lose under Obamacare, and I’ll give you an example. If you want to go into specifics, what the government can give, the government can take away. It certainly isn’t beyond the pale to think, in light of Kathleen Sebelius, the Health and Human Services Secretary — she said that it’s important that we have contraceptives because that prevents pregnancy, and pregnancy is more expensive to the federal government.

“Going with that logic, according to our own Health and Human Services Secretary, it isn’t far-fetched to think that the President of the United States could say, we need to save health care expenses — the federal government will only pay for one baby to be born in the hospital per family, or two babies to be born per family. That could happen. We think it couldn’t?

Oh, go on; admit it. You miss having her in the race, don’t you?
