Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on Hannity Thursday night to urge Sean Hannity’s viewers to get involved with defunding President Obama’s executive order on immigration by “melting the phone lines.” Although Congress is not currently in Washington D.C., Bachmann explained they will be back at work from December 1st through the 11th. She invited the Fox Channel audience not only to call their congressmen and senators, but to actually join her for a rally at the Capitol building.
“We need to have your viewers melt the phone lines. So, I’m asking your viewers to join us, Wednesday, December 3rd at high noon on the west steps of the Capitol. Come, rally, and then go visit your Senator and go visit your Congressman. And you can make the difference and we can get this thing defunded. We can do this, but we need the viewers to come and help us.”
Bachman was elected in 2006 to become the first Republican woman to represent Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District in the House of Representatives. Bachmann is leaving office at the end of this year. Republican Tom Emmer, who won her vacated seat, will be the only new member of Minnesota’s congressional delegation when the 114th Congress gets underway in January.
