Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Wednesday said Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. should be forced to purchase health insurance through ObamaCare exchanges because he wrote the opinion upholding the law that she described as “a complete and utter disaster.”
Bachmann made the comments after a closed-door briefing from federal Health Department officials over the Obama administration’s response to initial problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
The briefing from Mike Hash, director of the Office of Health Reform, was scheduled last week following demands from the House Republican leadership, but only about 20 out of more than 200 members attended.
“What we learned in there is that their answer is, ‘We don’t know,’ ” Bachmann said. “They don’t have an answer for anything.”
