NO on increasing the minimum wage
She voted against a $60B stimulus package for jobs, infrastructure, & energy.
NO on restricting employer in terference in union organizing
She is against, what she terms "government handouts" of any kind, unless of course they subsidize corporations. She even considered the 9/11 Responders Bill "A New Entitlement Program". Of course, one could not criticize her views about government handouts were she not so prolific at accepting them for herself. Data from federal records maintained by Environmental Working Group show her family farm received $251,973 in federal subsidies. No wonder she was against reducing farm subsidies.
Bachmann led the cry against "Obamacare", that evil social medicine, while her husband's Christian counseling agency received state funds. Clearly, Bachmann is perfectly at ease with government handouts as long as her hand is the one that's out.
She's opposed to gay unions; Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation and Voted NO on enforcement against anti-gay hate crimes.
According to Bachmann, President Obama purposely caused the hike in gas prices, but she voted NO on defining "energy emergency" on federal gas prices and voted NO on removing oil & gas exploration subsidies. She believes everything from ACORN, to the Census, from volunteer work to the President himself to be part of a socialist anti-American agenda. She even believes her fellow Congressmen are anti-American.
Bachmann constantly makes statements that are completely untrustworthy, wildly inaccurate, grossly distorted, and downright mendacious, yet, she was reelected to serve in Congress, where she'll help to shape the direction of the nation and now she is running for President!
Who elects these people?
