Is the Tea Party funded by tax payers? It looks that way. Socialism I tell you.


Quote:
On Nov. 5, 2009, at the behest of Rep. Michele Bachmann, thousands of tea party activists descended on the Capitol to vent their rage over the health care overhaul bill pending before Congress.
The assembled activists chanted, "Kill the bill! Kill the bill!" and waved signs opposing a government takeover of health care ā€” but they may not have known that the same government was paying for the event.
According to House expense reports, Bachmann and three conservative GOP colleagues ā€” Reps. Tom Price (Ga.), Steve King (Iowa) and Todd Akin (Mo.) ā€” each paid $3,407.50 that day, a total of $13,630, to a sound and stage company called National Events, apparently for the sound system used at the rally.

Exactly, she should have held a huge voter registration drive and paid all the volunteers and fed them while paying to bus them around.

Watch Bachmann be called a "RINO" once her followers turn against her.
