In an appearance on Newsmax TV last Friday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) expressed support for Rep. Joe Wilson in his "outburst" during President Obama's health care address to Congress. "Joe Wilson spoke the truth on the floor of the House," Bachmann said.

In the context of the larger health care debate, Bachmann continued, "People can buy their own health insurance if government gets out of the way."
