GOP Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann Gets Booed and Heckled

Michele Bachmann was invited to speak at the New Hampshire House of Representatives on October 12.  She was among one of the five Republican presidential candidates invited to speak including Gary Johnson, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Rick Santorum. 

During her speech (video below), she voiced her support for a current right-to-work bill in the state.  In response to her very vocal support of the bill, the opponents heckled and booed her in the chamber while some Republican lawmakers applauded her support. 

What is a Right-To-Work State 

  • Right to work for less doesn’t guarantee any rights. In fact, by weakening unions and collective bargaining, it destroys the best job security protection that exists: the union contract.  
  • Right to work laws lower wages for everyone.  
  • The average worker in a right to work state makes about $5,333 a year less than workers in other states ($35,500 compared with $30,167).  
  • Weekly wages are $72 greater in free-bargaining states than in right to work states ($621 versus $549).  
  • Working families in states without right to work laws have higher wages and benefit from healthier tax bases that improve their quality of life.

  2. Bachmann is a buffoon. Why the people in her district keep sending her back to Washington, is beyond belief.

    • I just don’t understand how she is there. She has been caught in lies, not knowing her history. Even her ex-aides have come out saying what kind of person she is, not knowing current events. Also, she has never wrote, co-wrote, or sponsored a bill while being in Congress. The people in her district must be developmentally delayed.

      • I loved it when she screwed up the states where the Revolutionary War started, and she did twice, once in Nashua, and then did the same thing Manchester, NH. Just like Palin screwing up Paul Revere’s ride.

        • What is so painful is I want to have a woman as president, and we had an excellent candidate with Hillary Clinton. No matter what side of the isle one’s political views were, everyone agreed she was a brilliant person.

          Now after articulate Hillary, the women we get stuck with are Palin and Bachmann going around making absolute fools of themselves…Ughh!! I have one thing to be thankful for….they are Republicans,…LOL!!!

  3. I agree with you, and Hillary would make an excellent president.

  4. This woman needs a good spanking for thinking she can tell anyone how to live. She needs mental health counseling.

    • LOL. Maybe her and her husband should stop trying to “cure the gay” and spouting their religious rhetoric and start looking for a cure for their utter idiocy and complete lack of intelligence.
