Bachman & Associates Clinic Took $167,000,00 in MEDICARE, more than Michele Bachman first reported. And Michelle Bachman continues receiving FARM SUBSIDIES. HYPOCRITE, LIARS, & THIEVES.
Apparently Mr. Bachmann’s been under investigations before. Check out last year’s news on Marcus.
Americans United investigating Bachmann and Associates funding
July, 7, 2010
The watchdog group Americans United for Separation of Church and State says it’s opening an investigation into taxpayer funds going to Bachmann and Associates, Inc., a Christian mental health counseling clinic owned by Rep. Michele Bachmann and her husband, Marcus. The Minnesota Independent first reported on the clinic’s receipt of public funds, totalling nearly $30,000, back in June.
“[W]e would like to think that Bachmann, as a member of Congress, knows better than to take state funds to run a sectarian organization,” wrote Sandhya Bathija on the group’s blog. “Catholic Charities and other groups may receive government funding, but they must keep their religious activities separate from their social services.”
She added, “It doesn’t look like the Bachmanns are doing that. If the clinic wants state funds, it must perform secular social services – not proselytize or discriminate in hiring. It’s as simple as that.”
According to Jason Wilson, a legal intern with Americans United, the group is investigating “Bachmann and Associates’ funding and how they receive their funds from the state and/or federal government.” Source
This year’s news:
Presidential candidate has often blasted growing welfare programs
By Michael Isikoff National investigative correspondent
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.
Rep. Michele Bachmann has been propelled into the 2012 presidential contest in part by her insistent calls to reduce federal spending, a pitch in tune with the big-government antipathy gripping many conservatives.
But the Minnesota Republican and her family have benefited personally from government aid, an examination of her record and finances shows. A counseling clinic run by her husband has received nearly $30,000 from the state of Minnesota in the last five years, money that in part came from the federal government. A family farm in Wisconsin, in which the congresswoman is a partner, received nearly $260,000 in federal farm subsidies.
While Bachmann’s supporters sift through Wikipedia in attempts to rewrite history for her idiotic fairytale history gaffes, please don’t overlook the blatant HYPOCRISY of this woman screaming about our OH SO BIG government and spending cuts!
Michelle Bachman is no more than another Sarah Palin , a GRIFTR; making money off her ignorance, fear-mongering, and lest we forget her WHITE PRIVILEGE.
