Michele Bachmann Reveals 'Motivation In Life'

MICHELE BACHMANN OBAMA

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) signaled what she sees as her "motivation in life" at a Republican dinner in Montana over the weekend.

"I take my first political breath every morning with one thought in mind," the Tea Party darling told her audience, the Missoulian reports. "Repeal Obamacare... That's my motivation in life."

According to the Treasure State-based outlet, Bachmann said the health care reform package signed into law by President Barack Obama last year really "is something else." She reportedly went on to revive a criticism she's unleashed multiple times before, characterizing the legislation as "the crown jewel of socialism."

The conservative superstar used the very same language in taking aim at health care reform last month, as well as around this time last year when she suggested the bill amounted to "gangster government."

In her speech over the weekend, Bachmann said, "President Obama, and I'm willing to say it, ushered in socialism under his watch." She later added, "My opinion is we can't shut this president down fast enough."
