Rep. Bachmann Gets Her Facts Wrong, Part 42

Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota is one of the dimmest bulbs on the Republican Right, a bubbling font of bad ideas and misinformation.

So it's no surprise that Bachmann can't tell fact from fiction in her claims about the health care law. Here's what she said:
The New England Journal of Medicine released a survey the week that President Obama signed Obamacare stating that over 30 percent of American physicians would leave the profession if the government took over health care.
Oh no! Obama has ruined the everything—except that the statement is not true. PolitiFact looked into the charge. It's wrong. The details are here.
