THEY have no qualms about taking the money

they just don't want anyone ELSE (including those who REALLY REALLY REALLY need it) to take it

Study reveals Bachmann to be ’something of a welfare queen’

By Stephen C. Webster

Outspoken Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann likes to make herself out to be a bastion of American conservatism, standing true as a bulwark against alleged socialism.

But that image is about to come crashing down around her.

Bachmann and her family were the recipients of over a quarter of a million dollars in "corrupt" farm subsidies in the nine years leading up to 2006, according to a new report by Yasha Levine, writing for Truth Dig.

Even for a woman who once warned that President Obama was "reaching down the throat and ripping the guts out of freedom," that's a lot of dough. In fact, it's almost exactly how much her stake in the family farm is worth.

"Bachmann’s financial disclosure forms indicate her stake in the Wisconsin farm is worth up to $250,000," noted Politico's Glenn Thrush. "Her income from the farm has grown from $2,000 a year a few years back to as much as $50,000 for 2008."..................
