LOL You guys have no idea how ridiculous you look, do you? Why don't you go after her 7th great uncle while you're at it?

Desperate, and it's hiliarious to watch.
That's too rich! All political spouses get scrutinized. Michelle and Cindy McCain certainly got it during the last campaign. Maybe it feels different when it's a male that's getting scrutinized.
Plus, Michele B. benefitted from this "dirty" money.

Here's why; Michelle Bachman is a self professed Evangelical Christian. As such it's the position of Evangelical Christians to help others unable to help themselves. Judging by the massive edifices that Evangelical Christians have erected to worship in and the salaries they pay their ministers, they are perfectly capable of raising money to to contribute to the treatment of indigent people needing health care.

If find it hard to believe that Michelle Bachman could not use her position as a highly popular Evangelical Christian to organize a charity fund and solicit donations from her Evangelical cohorts to treat indigent people that her clinic services.

After all it's the CHRISTIAN THINGS TO DO!
Actually, THIS is the christian thing to do:
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

Cool Bachmann's husband got $137,000 in Medicaid funds

"The previously unreported payments are on top of the $24,000 in federal and state funds that Bachmann & Associates, the clinic founded by Marcus Bachmann, a clinical therapist, received in recent years under a state grant to train its employees, state records show. The figures were provided to NBC News in response to a Freedom of Information request."

Are the Bachman's socialists or hypocrits?

They're part of the religious right.

That exempts them from anyone's "judgement", don't you see?

God told them to take that government money. God frowns on anyone else getting taxpayer subsidies. Unless they're corporate patrons of the GOP. In that case, it isn't a handout. It's "earnings."

Neither of them did anything illegal or unethical yet people will find anything to dramatize in order to make them appear bad.

How's about commenting on Michelle's political stand ?

What you're failing to grasp is Bachmann's elitist "It's OK for ME to grab taxpayer cash. Anyone not just like me should NOT be able to" attitude is inconsistent, let's say.

So all Republicans and their spouses should just refuse any government handouts because they are Republican ?
Then all Dems should distribute their wealth to the poor because they fight for "equality"..how's that one going ?

That's along the same lines as blaming the corporations for not paying taxes and hoarding money.

Everyone is playing the game according to the rules.
The problem is that we have bad rules that no one wants to change.

Whenever a Lefty uses "ilk", it becomes obvious that have no rational viewpoint.
