  •  Michele Bachmann was a tax lawyer (0+ / 0-)

    and she has gone out saying "businesses with $250,000 gross income will face massive tax increases" if the $250,000 tax bracket is raised by 3 points.

    That short sentence is wrong in four ways.

    It boggles the mind. That's not a slip-of-the-tongue, that's a genuine failure of understanding with no possible explanation. I can only imagine that her entire career has involved having her staff do everything for her, but surely even the laziest human being can't spend decades in taxation and law without obtaining even the slightest shred of information. How is it possible?
