Bachmann cannot get co-sponsor for repeal Obamacare bill

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was proud to introduce the very first bill in this latest session. She was so proud that she tweeted her glee. Of course, her bill was to repeal Obamacare. This was the 34th time House Republicans have introduced a repeal Obamacare bill.
As always with Bachmann the only end game, the only intention of her efforts is for self-promotion.
She has never been interested in representing her district or of accomplishing anything. Except to score political points.
But this time not even her usual co-conspirators are not interested in her games:
In a sign that the GOP's anti-Obamacare fervor may finally be giving way to political reality, Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-MN) latest Obamacare repeal bill doesn't have a single co-sponsor in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Bachmann made introducing the repeal bill her first order of business for the 113th Congress, even as millions of Americans waited for House Republicans to act on a disaster relief package in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
And two other anti-Obamacare bills - one to repeal the law's individual insurance mandate and another introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to repeal the whole law - also do not have any co-sponsors. By contrast, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-VA) so-called "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act" had a total of 182 cosponsors by the fourth day of the 112th Congress, and House Republicans successfully voted to repeal Obamacare a staggering 33 times during the last session - costing taxpayers an approximate $50 million. Public support for repealing the reform law has plunged to an all-time low as Americans begin experiencing its positive effects.
