Bachmann's Christian clinic supported by Medicaid

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for bachmanncomicart.jpg
It's time for Michele Bachmann to fess up: She doesn't really hate government handouts, she loves them -- any time they benefit her personally or politically.

The latest case in point: NBC is reporting that the Christian counseling business she runs with her husband, Marcus, has been the beneficiary of $137,000 in Medicaid grants.

The clinic also used $24,000 in government funds to train employees.

That's the same "successful small business" she brags about in her speeches, and that she says helps define her as a "serious person," and not a flake. Turns out it's surviving thanks to the government.

The news is part of a pattern in which she disparages government spending, unless it's on her.

Is Bachmann really ready for prime time?
She wants government off the backs of private enterprise, but the congresswoman's family farm in Wisconsin has been the beneficiary of a quarter-million dollars in ag subsidies. And it may be breaking Wisconsin's financial institutions laws. [Hat Tip: Bremer.]

And even though she hates "porking," she's happily trying to bring home the bacon for a massive bridge over the St. Croix that would benefit her home district.

This was supposed to be Bachmann's big rollout week in Iowa, but she doesn't look ready for prime time.

Instead of hitting the ground running, she tripping over her shoelaces. She insulted her hometown with ugly memories about mass murderer John Wayne Gacy. She pissed off rocker Tom Petty by playing "American Girl" at the close of her speech and got hit with a cease and desist order. And now she's been exposed -- again -- by NBC for taking government money while shaming others for doing the same thing.

And it's only Wednesday.

If Obama thinks the Bush tax rates for the wealthy are too low, does that mean he is a hyprocrite unless he pays a higher rate voluntarily?  If you think the speed limit should be 85, are you a hyprocrite if you drive 55?  We all play the game within the parameters allowed.  That doesn't mean you have to love the system.  PS - I don't like Bachmann.

Part of the problem is that she listed income from the farm and subsidies on her congressional financial disclosure form, then she denied publically that she got a dime(or a penny) from the farm-so did she lie to the press or lie on her disclosure form? It has to be one or the other.

Much unlike all those people in the Obama administration WHO DIDN'T PAY THEIR TAXES FOR YEARS!!!!!!!Did City Pages do even one story on that?

Why would anyone every try to fix, and perhaps eliminate something in which they benefit from?  Maybe she really is trying to rain in the fraud and save the system for the future masses while cutting her own.Isn't the medicare money essentially payment for services provided? Maybe she's pulling an Obama.  Saying one thing, while intending to do another.

Ya, I know, hate conquers common sense.  I wouldn't expect any of you to ask questions like this of your own.By the way, how did Barack Obama pay for his prestigious schooling?How did Michelle Obama pay for hers?Who paid for it?What happened to Michelle Obama's last job in where she made 385,000 a year.  Why wasn't she replaced after she left to become first lady?  Was Her job's only purpose, to drive up the cost of health care for the poor?

did you guys ask these questions of your own?Or did the HATE FOR THE RIGHT cloud you better judgement?Are you purely partisan hypocrites like Michele? (so you claim of Michele)

You idiots are missing the obvious about Michele B. (if you wish to harm her)Because I am a BIGGER person than most of you, I'll help you out.  (something you would NEVER do for me) Don't get mad and call me names, prove otherwise.  Point out some bad about your guy. 

You fools paying attention?23 childrenChild tax credit.= how many $'s over the years from your chump tax paying ass.

Is any lib in here, smart enough to figure that out?

City Pages is a weekly periodical based out of Minnesota. They are reporting on Bachmann because she is from Minnesota. They would not do the kind of reporting you are requesting because Obama is a national politician from another state, just like they would probably not run stories on Huntsman or Cain or any other GOP-er besides Pawlenty and Bachmann who are from MN.

This exact point has literally been made to kirk one billion times.   He is too stupid to understand it.   People like him are why Liberals know all Republicans are insane idiots.

Someone liked your comment? Spreading lies to the unwise, knowing they will swallow that tripe?

See the search box up top Hank?Type: McCain

Explain that!

See, the correct wordage to use to explain what Citypages is, would be is:  City Pages, is a weekly periodical, based out of Minnesota, with a blatant leftist-socialist bias.

More translation from jerkese to coherent english-As usual the jerk avoids the point of the story and makes excuses for MB's behavior. he then attempts to point the finger at others,once again going off topic. He goes to say that because he is overweight he will help us. He finishes with his usual gibberish. For those of you new to the jerk, his rants are generally off topic and illogical, I offer this translation to help the jerk be unstood by non-jerks.

HATE HATE HATE, right ZeroMcBrains?Ignore any details, right ZeroMcBrains?Skew who you truly are, right ZeroMcBrains?

At least I have my own language.  Clearly a bigger accomplishment than most, and definitely you, will ever achieve in their lives, right ZeroMcBrains?

See people, ZeroMcBrains MUST BE the smart one in the board, because he believes YOU'RE ALL TOO STUPID to understand what I'm saying.  ZeroMcBrains not only enjoys belittling me, BUT ALSO YOU.

Check your shoe ZeroMcBrains; I think you stepped in something.  Or is it nearing your weakly bath?

The facts are that Michele Bachmann is a hypocrite that knows all her supporters are idiots so she can take government money while decrying government spending.  I noticed you don't address anything the article is about you just start slinging mud at the other side.   If you had actual morals and beliefs you'd be consistent and get mad at Michele for doing what you hate.   Seems to me you know Michele is out of line on this but your tiny dinosaur brain can't accept it.   The hate and rage in your heart keeps you from using logic and applying what you think is right and wrong to both Democrats and Republicans.

Here the jerk admits that he speaks gibberish and resorts to petty name calling to hide the fact that he has nothing to say on point. He is immune to logic,reason and facts and can seldom if ever remain on point when it comes to his responses.

I can't wait to hear how the idiot Republicans justify this one.    Sample response from tea party morons on this one:   "Why doesn't city pages report on Obama who said "who" when he meant "whom".    What a socialist islamofacist!!    Obama uses his teleprompter for everything he says and he is trying to make 57 states for Saul Alinsky as part of the master plan because Obama is racist and hates white people and does everything for black people except but he is doing black baby holocaust and my head hurts and FDR once hit a Japanese man with his wheelchair and he died which proves Obama is Hitler.  Look it up people in the google interwebs."     Sorry to steal your thunder kirk.

Got ya all dancing now!

BTW, Saul Alinsky is dead, and was a Hillary Clinton mentor.  I know, pesky facts. Google this people:  "For Clinton and Obama, a Common Ideological Touchstone"Where is it from?A site with self admitted liberal bias?Now, who was Saul Alinsky?

See MB, I did look it up.  (The FDR/Japanese guy/Obama/Hitler rant)It appears as, you are making things up MB.
