Bachmann Scandal Breaks

A farm Rep. Michelle Bachmann co-owns collected $47,128 in federal farm subsidies between 2004-2005.

A 949-acre Wisconsin farming operation — in which Bachmann owns up to a quarter-million-dollars interest has collected as much as $127,868 in federal farm subsidies since the partnership was established in 2001.

You can read the rest of it here.

It's not like progressives needed a reason to not like Michelle Bachmann already.
But seriously, she espouses the belief that the closer we are to a total free-market, plutocracy the better. Then she goes off and benefits from a progressive program like farm subsidies.
What a hypocrite.
