That she decided to become a citizen of a nation known for it!
Rep. Michele Bachmann is now officially a Swiss miss.
Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently became a citizen of Switzerland, making her eligible to run for office in the tiny European nation, according to a Swiss TV report Tuesday.
Arthur Honegger, a reporter for public broadcaster Schweizer Fernsehen, told POLITICO the Swiss consulate in Chicago has confirmed that the former Republican presidential candidate became a citizen March 19.
And Bachmann said something I can agree with:
Asked if she would run for office in Switzerland — as she is now eligible to do — Bachmann joked that the competition “would be very stiff because they are very good,” referring to the parliamentarians behind her.
Yes they are! Switzerland used to have a healthcare mess much like ours here in the good ole’ U.S. Luckily their “very good” parliamentarians were able to come together and create a decent healthcare program. They weren’t out there crying “socialism’ and saying how others were going to destroy their country. Nope – that is left to American politicians like Michele Bachmann.
