Bachmann uses contested figures during ‘Hannity’ appearance

Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared Monday on Fox New’s “Hannity,” where she discussed the possibily of the health-care reform bill being passed before year’s end. With a final vote in the Senate at a standstill, Bachmann is hoping to see it wither on the vine, offering several reasons it shouldn’t pass. But some of her statements have been called out as being false. Near the end of the interview, Bachmann claims that according to Christina Romer, one of President Obama’s White House economic advisers, the health-care reform bill passage would “mean 5.5 million jobs lost” — a statement PolitiFact.com has contested.

Bachmann first appears around the 1:20 mark.
