Video: Bachmann Showing Moxy, Hits Perry on HPV Vaccines

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was much more lively and aggressive in last night’s Tea Party debate in Florida than her previous performance at the Reagan Library in California.

Bachmann received more questions and was willing to tangle with the frontrunner, Texas Gov. Rick Perry. She took a shot at Perry for his controversial executive order, which forced young girls to take a vaccination shot to prevent HPV.

“I’m a mom of three children, and to have innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection, through an executive order, is just flat out wrong,” said Bachmann.

Not stopping at just the violation of liberty, Bachmann went on to slam Perry for his connection to the company, Merck, that produced the injections. Essentially she accused him of crony capitalism.

“The company gave thousands of dollars to the governor, and this is just flat-out wrong,” Bachmann said.
