“The American people are going to expect more and demand more,” said Pawlenty.
But Bachmann returned fire, saying that as governor Pawlenty had praised the idea of?? Requiring people to buy health services.
“That sounds more like (President) Barack Obama, if you ask me,” said Bachmann.
But Pawlenty did not let the comments go. Pawlenty reported that Bachmann has a history of making false statements.
Bachmann later crashed to fight the things that happen anyway.
“If that’s your point of view of effective leadership and results, please stop because they are killing us,” said Pawlenty.
