On Wednesday, 06/29/11, Jenk Uygur challenged Michele Bachmann to return the $421,000 she and her family have received as ‘federal welfare.’ Bachmann is known for railing against government programs that she feels are federal handouts. [Totals vary.]
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — As Rep. Michele Bachmann tours the country criticizing government as too big and too expensive, the Republican presidential candidate has come under mounting scrutiny over public dollars flowing to family business interests.
There’s $259,000 in federal subsidies paid since 1995 to a family farm of which Bachmann is a part owner. Another $30,000 went to Bachmann and Associates Counseling Clinic in the last five years from various Minnesota government agencies, including one small payment logged the day after the congresswoman’s official 2012 kickoff.
WILL BACHMANN RETURN FEDERAL HANDOUTS SO SHE CAN HONESTLY RAIL AGAINST THEM ON HER BUS TOUR?
