Michele Bachmann: Another Republican Prevaricator
July 1, 2011

In addition to her many misrepresentations of American history, Michele Bachmann claims that the she and her husband never received a penny in federal subsidies from the family farm in which they are part owners. This in spite of the fact that Department of Agriculture records show that Mr. Bachmann was paid some $260,000 in corn and dairy subsidies between 1995 and 2007. Thus Ms. Bachmann continues the Republican tact of just ignoring the facts.
And no surprise, I guess, that the Republicons voted to continue federal funding for farm subsidies.
