Medical clinic medicaid payments.(tax payer money)
Congress member salary.(tax payer money)
Employed by the IRS.(tax payer money)
Foster children benefits from welfare.(tax payer money)
She just can not make a living without it being tax payers money. She loves big government when she benefits financially. Big government is bad for everyone but her.

This is why we need smaller govt.. They do more damage than good. The real problem is the international regulations. Food tariffs are a big deal all over the world, and need to be reined in across the board. Ever see those french farmers go apesh1t? American workers/farmers should be able to compete with others everywhere, but the playing fields are not level.

Wow!

She actually received farming subsidies? Ummm....No. Her husbands family did. Would you like to define liberals by the actions their in-laws perform?

Medicad payments? No! Say it isn't so! Someone performing a service and being paid for it? How dare people expect payment from the government for rendering services. Just like those soldiers, right?

Again, being paid for being a member of Congress? How dare they follow the Constitution. The nerve of them. Following the Constitution, how dare they?

That evil Bachmann, caring for foster kids and how dare she help her society?

Again, being paid for having a job with the IRS? Will the atrocities ever stop! How dare she expect payment for having a job with the government?

Only the left could make a person look evil for taking on foster kids, having a paid job with the government and decisions in-laws make. The left says people on the right are wackos? I guess sane people look crazy to the insane.

I agree with that. problem is that when tens of millions of people who are now on welfare get cut off they will all be homeless and starveing.....and desperate. They will turn to crime and this nation will need to double police force and prison space which in turn will cost way way more then welfare ever did. There is by modest estimates 30-50 million people nation wide on welfare. There is maybe maybe 10 million jobs nation wide counting full and part time. There isnt enough jobs so those without will need to steal rob and take what they need to survive. What will that cost to stop? Double??? Triple??? What we spend now on welfare.

Like I said I am all for getting rid of wlefare,but there will be even higher cost when it ends.

It took almost a century to get here, and it can't be stopped overnight. The way to fix anything is gradually, if possible. Start with drug testing, and mandatory education. In Japan, if you get sentenced to more than a year in jail, you need to pass an exam to get out. Rudy cleaned up NYC by fingerprinting unemployment recipients, and discovering that deadbeats from CT,NJ and even PA were collecting NYS unemployment. The mayors of cities like Bridgeport and Newark complained that the NYC riffraff was relocating because of Rudy's policies. Maybe if we fixed the national system and had immigration reform we'd spend less on lowlives.

LOL, John and Theresa Kerry with their govenrment food contracts, small taxes paid, Nancy Pelosi and her husband getting the goverment to repair the wharfs in SF where he owns property, exempting their canneries from minimum wage laws, Robert Redford and Ted Turner having an "organic" mulch on their farms exempting them for many taxes.

Obama's mother in law living the in Whitehouse doing NOTHING all day and living off the taxpayers?

State and Federal government unions milking the taxpayers for HUGE salaries and retirement plans?

You're not even close.

My my my so upset over simply bringing out the fact where her income is from you know the tax payers.The liberal republicans are like the liberal democrats they like to deceive and hide what they are all about.
The Bachmann farm was a LLP in which she is a owner and received farm subsidies.
My comment was where her income came from. She claims to be against government and government is too big but her income comes from the tax payer. Fiscal and person responsibility is what she expects others to do but does not apply to her. She likes to cut others programs but she says do not touch my special interests. She is fraud and a phony.

I agree they do the same thing just like Bachmann. You just described the entire congress. Have they also said people need to be fiscal and personal responsible and government is too big and must be cut. Bachmann and the Tea Party are trying to deceive people by telling them they are different and take responsibility. You know take back our government like it is all theres or something and that blabber and deceit.

Bachmann is only one among the other members of congress. Our congress are all hypocrites. Tea Party candidates claim to be different but they are just the same old crap that we have had forever.
