‘God Has Created You for Heterosexuality’: Clinics Owned by Michele Bachmann’s Husband Practice Ex-Gay Therapy

Hmm…

About Michelle Bachman: I have a few questions. Perhaps somebody has the facts. Representative Bachman, the great foe of economic enslavement by government, continually touts her good deeds of taking in twenty-plus foster children. I’d like to know if she did this without any government assistance (socialism). Or did she take advantage of foster childcare payments (welfare), food stamp subsidies, Medicaid or other government provided healthcare, tax exemptions, child care tax credits or any other forms of government subsidy for foster parents? I have a sneaking suspicion she is not averse to taking government largesse when it’s to her advantage. This generous activity of hers may have actually bankrolled her for what she’s doing now. I personally know some people who quit their jobs to be professional foster mothers and made a lot more doing that than by having a regular job. Is this another case of Republican hypocrisy?
