Bachmann: The DCCC is after me again!

michelebachmanNEWUSETHIS.jpg

Ah, the joys of politics. One politician says something stupid, people flip out, those people try to make money off it. The politician comes out in response (much too late of course) and tries to make it into their own fundraising ploy. And the cycle continues.

In the latest, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee started fundraising effort this week to show Republicans like Rep. Michele Bachmann who is really boss. So Bachmann has responded today with a fundraising email of her own to counter the Democrats. Are we back in election season or what?

Read her full letter below.

The Democrats claim they just want the "rich" to pay their fair share. But, we all know their definition of rich includes more and more middle class Americans each year...

The Democrats' wealth redistribution scheme can't continue on this runaway path. Sooner or later, they'll be coming after you too.

And, because I dare to say so, they're targeting all their resources to defeat me. They'll stop at nothing to take your voice away in Congress.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is after me again -- mailing nationwide to raise $50,000 by Wednesday to use against me and other principled Members of Congress who are standing up to runaway spending in Washington.

DCCC Attacks Bachmann

The text of their email -- sent to thousands of their liberal supporters -- and signed by one of Bill and Hillary Clinton's political masterminds -- is reprinted for you below.

They just don't get it, do they?

President Obama wasn't in office a full month before he pushed through Congress a $792-billion spending bill cleverly packaged as a so-called "economic stimulus" package. But, the facts are startlingly clear: This was about spending on liberal policy agenda items, not about stimulating the economy.

From the Los Angeles Times to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), respected news sources and independent analysts said that the money they were spending would come long after the economic recovery has begun; that the bill's priorities were skewed in favor of programs that have little to no stimulative value.

Commentators across the nation pointed to provisions of the bill that literally stripped away restrictions that Congress passed only months earlier to keep ACORN from getting billions in federal funding.

And, Republicans offered alternatives to redirect spending to shovel-ready transportation projects that are proven to create jobs and to small business and family tax relief with a history of getting an economy going. Our alternative would have created twice the jobs at half the cost.

The Democrats rejected these commonsense proposals and pushed through their profligate spending. And, as a result, government spending on this recession has reached $9.7 trillion in the last year, placing an incredible burden not only on today's taxpayers, but on taxpayers for generations.

The Democrats claim they just want the "rich" to pay their fair share. But, we all know their definition of rich includes more and more middle class Americans each year. Just ask any struggling family farmer who worries about the cost of the death tax. Or ask any middle class family that suddenly realizes it has to pay the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).

The Democrats' wealth redistribution scheme can't continue on this runaway path. Sooner or later, they'll be coming after you too.

And, because I dare to say so, they're targeting all their resources to defeat me. They'll stop at nothing to take your voice away in Congress.
