Bachmann Wants 'Scare' Tactics

During a conference call on Wednesday night, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann called on protesters to "scare" members of Congress into killing health-care reform. "Nothing scares members of Congress more than freedom-loving Americans," Bachmann said. At noon, Republican organizers plan to have activists head into the House buildings and U.S. Capitol to confront House members after a press conference at noon. "Don't bring your pitchforks," Bachmann said, "bring your video cameras." She believes that these actions will "absolutely scare these members of Congress so much" that the bill will die, not to be resuscitated, for 10 years.
