All hail Michelle Bachmann, the GOP prophetess!

Michelle Bachmann wants to explain to the American people why we can't have Social Security and Medicare (Taiwan can have universal health care that pays for Chinese herbal medicine, long term care, dental and vision, as well as Western high-tech science-based medicine, but we, the Superpower of the World, can't even afford basic health care for the elderly, don't you see?). Here's what she said, this past weekend at the right-wing Constitutional Coalition in St. Louis, Missouri:
"So, what you have to do, is keep faith with the people that are already in the system, that don't have any other options, we have to keep faith with them. But basically what we have to do is wean everybody else off, and wean everybody off because we have to take those unfunded net liabilities off our bank sheet, we can't do it. So we just have to be straight with people. So basically, whoever our nominee is, is going to have to have a Glenn Beck chalkboard and explain to everybody this is the way it is."
PLEASE, please, Great Obstructionist Party, adopt Michelle Bachman's (and Paul Ryan's and Tom Price's and Sarah Palin's) plans for Social Security and Medicare as your party platform and agenda! (You might try to put it in complete sentences first). Wonderful! We'll cream you and end up with a two thirds Senate majority, with which we can get rid of the filibuster forever, and enact a progressive agenda to actually address our society's problems! Oh, please!
