Reports are surfacing Tea Party queen, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, may have serious health problems and could be addicted to powerful, prescription painkillers.
A report Tuesday in the Daily Caller says Bachmann “suffers from stress-induced medical episodes that she characterizes as severe headaches.”
Rep. Bachmann admits to suffering from migraine headaches and her campaign press secretary Alice Stewart told CNN, “Like millions of Americans, Congresswoman Bachmann suffers with migraines and they are under control when treated with medication.” However, Stewart declined to say what type of medication.
But the Daily Caller story suggested a far more serious malady and said Bachmann’s headaches occur once a week on average and “incapacitate” her for days at time.
Of particular concern to some around her is the significant amount of pain medication Bachmann takes to address her condition.
One former campaign aide says Bachmann’s staff is “constantly” in contact with her doctors to tweak the types and amounts of medicine she is taking. Her controversial husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, reportedly helps her manage her medications.
All of which begs the central question?
If Michelle Bachmann is taking powerful narcotics to treat the pain of her headaches and, management of her medications require a team effort who includes her campaign staff as well as her controversial husband, then is Rep. Michelle Bachmann fit to serve as this nation’s next president?
The answer is a resounding no!
