Rep. Michele Bachmann is Proud That Her Constituents Have To Work Two Jobs

"Worst Person in the World" [ 2 ]

She's "'Hot' for God!"
God Talks to Her! [ 2 ]
She Quotes Ann Coulter
Bachmann only wants to work 3 days a week,
but doesn't want vacations for Iraq soldiers.

Topping Congress's agenda as it returns this week is a plan to "jump-start the economy and try to shorten the slowdown that many economists say has already begun to take hold."

Today, Rep. Eric Cantor (VA), the chief deputy Republican whip in the House, unveiled his proposal to stimulate the economy. His legislation — the so-called Middle Class Job Protection Act — does nothing for the middle class. Instead, it reduces the corporate tax rate by 28 percent.

At a press conference today unveiling the stimulus proposal, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) justified the conservative plan to give tax breaks to corporations — instead of working Americans — by arguing that people actually like working long hours:

"I am so proud to be from the state of Minnesota. We're the workingest state in the country, and the reason why we are, we have more people that are working longer hours, we have people that are working two jobs."

Bachmann's version of the American Dream is apparently working two full-time jobs and struggling to get by.

"Workingest"?!?!

According to RH Reality Check, Rep. Michele Bachmann has also authored a new bill that would specifically authorize states to use Temporary Assistance to Needy Family (TANF) funds to provide "alternative-to-abortion" services that would funnel money to anti-abortion advocacy groups.

Bachman is a perfect example that inane and insensitive aren't disqualifiers for holding public office.

Workingest. I'm going to use that one.

She's sending a message to her corporate master overlords, she's telling them it's okay to enslave the people of her state.

Pidomon: Ick! Good luck with that. ;o)

DCup: It is hard to imagine that she can hold a job, much less office!

Dr. Monkerstein: Yep! She is saying that her slaves are the best workers!

JohnRaygun: Why thank you, sir!

Dean Wormer: It's so sad that she can vote in the House of Representatives. I hope that Nancy Pelosi decks her someday!

Jess Wundrun: Ha! Parking in the snow!

Anna: Because that is who I dressed her up as, of course!

Agent Orange: Not for the workers. I think that she sleeps fine.

Comrade Kevin: That would seem to be the long and short of it.

darkblack: Eek! I wonder which one is the teabagger and which one ins the teabagee? ;o)

MWB's World:: That's right! Share and share alike!

BAC: Those deities are such flirts.

Distributorcap: I agree that she needs to go, I am just not sure that there is a distance far enough away to suit me!

I think we should repeal child labor laws, too.

Why should adults have all the fun?

"Not for the workers. I think that she sleeps fine."

Perhaps she's been sleepin' on the job?? Some of her political statements sound as though she's talking in her sleep.

Remember how she grabbed bush after the last state of the union address and laid a kiss on him. She would so like to be bush's monica.

File her under, "crazy fu*king woman"

Übermilf: That's the spirit! We can be just like any other third world nation that is going down the tubes!

Agent Orange She dreams the dreams of the wicked.
