Then there's her federally subsidized home loan, backed by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, programs she has criticized and blamed for causing the economic crisis in 2008.
And let's not even get into who's been signing her paychecks since 1988. (Cough the government cough.)
And now there's this:
Yes, Michele is excited about the new $700 million bridge being constructed in her district—a bridge she fought hard to get through Congress, even though "taxpayer groups objected." You know, those taxpayer groups with whom Michele usually sides in denouncing the government spending money on anything because pork and earmarks and waste and freedom and stuff.
But remember, it's not porkalicious earmarky wastefulness when it's in Michele's district:
Bachmann told the Star Tribune she supports a "redefinition" of what an earmark is, because, she said: "Advocating for transportation projects for ones district in my mind does not equate to an earmark."
"I don’t believe that building roads and bridges and interchanges should be considered an earmark," Bachmann said. "There’s a big difference between funding a tea pot museum and a bridge over a vital waterway."
Yep, there's a big difference between the earmarks that other members of Congress seek and the "transportation projects" Bachmann seeks. The former is the thing Bachmann thinks is wrong because Jesus died for our right to not pay taxes (or something like that), and the latter is just more evidence of precisely how batshit-crazy-out-of-her-ever-lovin'-mind Bachmann really is.
It's time to kick this nutjob out of Congress and off the government welfare rolls once and for all.
