Michele Bachmann: setting the standard for being useless.

The first bill of the 113th Congress has been introduced.  Yesterday, facing a House and a Senate both featuring fewer Republicans than the last Congress, Michele Bachmann put forward the 34th attempt to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act.

Picture of Michele Bachmann with the quote "I don't always say what I'm thinking.  But when I do, it's completely fucking insane."

Since we all know the definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result), now this picture can officially go into the dictionary under that entry.

How much will it cost the US of A to entertain and then bury another foredoomed attempt in this vein?

According to a report by CBS News in July, the then-33 unsuccessful attempts by House Republicans to repeal the law had used up around 80 hours of time in Congress, or two full work weeks, at a cost of around $48 million.

By my calculation, the most important thing Michele Bachmann could think to do in Congress right now is to spend $1.45 million dollars masturbating for her voter base.  Remember, this is the party who whines about governmental waste.
