Bachmann Says Republicans Will Do Nothing But Issue Subpoenas If They Become Majority
Oh, here is your modern-day Edmund Burke, revealing what she thinks the GOP's political philosophy should be when they win a Congressional majority in the midterm elections: "I think that all we should do is issue subpoenas and have one hearing after another. And expose all the nonsense that is gone [sic] on. And it's very important when we come back that we have constitutional conservative leadership because the American people's patience is about this big. So we have to make sure that we do what the people want us to do." Yes, Michele Bachmann, this is what we want you to do. No more passin' laws and such.
If the Republicans just subpoena all the time and never do anything but troll the Obama administration, the American people will be very satisfied and choose the Republicans as RULING PARTY 4 LIFE.
Bachmann went on to claim that while prior to President Obama's election, "the private economy was 100 percent held in private hands," while "today 65 percent of the economy is now held in government's hands - either through direct ownership or control."
It's not clear where Bachmann got the 65 percent figure. She claimed on CBS' "Face the Nation" in March that the government owns or controls 51 percent of the U.S. economy, which her communications director explained by combining an estimate from an economics professor of government ownership and "the passage of the health care bill, which makes up about 18 percent of the economy."
She got it from the evil Obama Leviathan in her mind. It speaks to her. It tells her the truth about economics, in a snake voice like the one in The Jungle Book that makes her squirm.
Enjoy your socialist empire while you still have it, libruls, and get your sleeping bags ready for when you camp out at the Congressional hearing table! [ CBS ]
