Fun to hear her gush about being a product of the 6th district after gushing a few months ago about being a product of Iowa.
Please, take your show to Iowa for good.
I don't have any confidence Michelle Bachmann can go to Washington and bring something back to the people that sent her there. Bachmann=fraud
God bless Michele Bachmann. She is a True American Patriot!
Uhh.. and why would this be a difficult feat? She's in the house with 241 of her unified voting party members. The only bill I recall her introducing was to stop the new incandescent light bulbs from replacing the old technology light bulbs - as if that's something to be proud about. Bachmann belongs on an AM Radio show, not a member of Congress.
Too funny. Says Michelle, "I’m an Iowa girl — I was born here, raised in Iowa. And I think that Iowans are going to come home and choose an Iowan for the White House." /// I guess she'll do anything to keep that great govt job, with great govt pay, and great govt healthcare, and great govt pension ... but none of that for all you freeloaders out there!
I guess this means she will actually have to do what she was elected to do, and what she has not been doing since last August. I just moved into the 6th district, and I will NOT be voting for here.....
The planners need to go back to the drawing board. This bridge is too costly & can't be justified with a 6 lane bridge crossing just a few miles up the road.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought she was against spending by the feds? Let the people of Stillwater and WS that use the bridge pay for it. It's time we stopped being hypocrites and put the lack of money where her mouth is. Al and Amy should take a back seat on this to give Bachman the world she has been advocating.
If she can't convince her House cronnies to pass this bill for her (when she has support from the Governor) then she really has (had) no business being in Congress...
If taxpayer dollars are going to this bridge it should be built for the least amount of money possible.
If Bachmann wants extras - then she should seek to raise private money to pay for those extras.
I am really tired of these people like Bachmann who run around yelling about government spending but then have no problem overpaying for a bridge so she can brag about her accomplishment.
