Bachmann blasts Gingrich, Romney on health care
"We have to have a president that is committed to the full repeal of Obamacare -- I am," Bachmann told National Journal/CBS News in an interview.
Both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich -- as well as the other GOP candidates -- have said they would repeal Obama's health care law if they are elected president.
But Bachmann blasted Gingrich as "the father of the individual mandate" and said, "There is absolutely no possibility that Newt Gingrich will ever truly get behind the full-scale repeal of Obamacare because it's not what he believes in."
She also accused Romney of not supporting abolishing the law because of its similarity to what he helped enact earlier as governor of Massachusetts.
"We also know that Mitt Romney is the only governor in the history of the United States to put into place socialized medicine," she said. "Mitt Romney will never get rid of the health care mandate under Obamacare."Full CBS News coverage: Michele Bachmann
