Let me rephrase that: Michele Bachman is either a BOLD LIAR ot really really STUPID!

in a brief visit to Good Morning America SHE reiterated the Republican talking points on the expiration of the tax cuts for the rich (surprise, surprise) and proceeded to tell George Stephanopoulos she is against eliminating the Bush tax cuts for the filthy rich. The poeple who bankrolled her campaign.

Of course, as a Tea Party leader she is very concerned with the deficit but she wants the middle class to pay for that. Then, n ot content to leave it at that she went ahead to give an example so that we can all get her point. She stated, and I am paraphrasing here, that her carpet layer who employs 2-3 people wopuld have to lay off some workers once he grosses $250K.

Of course anyone who knows anything about income taxes will tell you that taxes are paid and brackets are determined not on what one grosses from a small business but on net PROFIT, after allowances and deductions. That is why about 98% of small businessesare not effected by this. The only ones effected are small number of whales, mascarading as a small business.

Please make a note that this woman is one of their leaders. I can imagine how dumb and uninformed the rank and file is.

What really bothered me though is the fact that George did not see fit to challenge her on this blatant lie. Come on George, you are the son of a priest. Stand up for something! And this is not the first time you let these people get away with bold lies. I'm so disappointed in you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
