    After criticism, Bachmann removes veterans benefit cuts from proposal



    Won't be the last time we see Teahadists backtracking, either.

    I wait to see how the TPers hold up on cutting farm subsidies since most of their supporters are rural.
    Plus some major corporate ones who benefit from the subsidies as well.
    and medicare since their main supporters are the over 50 crowd.

    Too bad she didn't have the back bone to keep it in, by time they make provisions for every whiner there won't be any of saving as usual.

    They will likely focus on aid to the poor bacause they do not vote republican anyway. Medicaid, CHIPS, Food Stamps, etc.

    Bachmann is totally clueless

    Her political instincts are laughable

    Or, as I've said elsewhere, she's probably wingnutty like a fox. Could be she's drawing attention to herself to take focus off some of the other Republicans who are quietly working to gut everything imaginable...


    ...except defense, of course.

    Ohh I figure most of the cuts will actually be reductions in future projected increases.
