Second verse, same as the first, apparently.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party darling and former presidential candidate introduced among the first House bills of the 113th Congress Thursday.

Of course, one of the bills she introduced was to--you guessed it--repeal Obamacare in its entirety.

Even if Bachmann's bill stood a chance of becoming law (it almost certainly would not pass the Democrat-led Senate and be vetoed by President Obama), it's not even the first time House Republicans have tried to repeal the act.

Bachmann's bill, H.R. 45, "To Repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010," marks the 34th time such a bill has been introduced--to no avail--in the House.

(As a side note, Bachmann dropped out of the 2012 presidential race on Jan. 4, 2012, exactly one year ago Friday.)
