    seems bachman has more trouble than stealing petty's music




    While Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., has forcefully denounced the Medicaid program for swelling the "welfare rolls," the mental health clinic run by her husband has been collecting annual Medicaid payments totaling over $137,000 for the treatment of patients since 2005, according to new figures obtained by NBC News.

    blah blah blah

    "She's giving hypocrisy a bad name," said Ron Pollock, executive director of Families USA, a consumer health care advocacy group, when asked about the Medicaid payments to Bachmann & Associates. "It's clear when it feathers her nest she's happy for Medicaid expenditures. But people that really need it — folks with disabilities and seniors — she's turning their backs on them."

    It would be helpful to know what those 'forcefully denouncing' statements against Medicaid were? They should be included in context to make more sense of the op, otherwise, big deal? Find one clinic or doctor's office in the US who hasn't accepted Medicaid payments?

    ^^^ This is obvious to any rational being. Sadly, it seems the left are not rational. They prefer bullshit to honesty. Color me shocked.

    Hi!...

    As for taking the Funds... What was her Husband supposed to do?...

    Turn away the Patients?...

    The Law is what the Law is...

    Wanting to Change while NOT Denying those who are Afforded it is not Inconsistent...

    Not to Mention, it's her Husband, NOT her.

    Is her Husband Running as VP?

    :)

    peace...
