Michele Bachmann's claim that she has "never gotten a penny" from a
family farm that's been subsidized by the government is at odds with her

father-in-law, produced income for Bachmann of at least $32,500 and as much as
$105,000 from 2006 through 2009, according to the reports she filed for that
period. The farm also received federal crop and disaster subsidies, according to
a database maintained by the Environmental Working Group. From 1995 through
2010, the farm got $259,332 in federal payments.' In Michelle

Pagan,Just can't keep federal budgets and New Jersey state budgets
separate, can you?Cannot be honest enough to include in your
standard cut and paste attack on Christie that he repaid the state, can you?I guess you also missed the part about S&P saying if there had been
a balanced budget amendment as part of the deal (which Bachmann supported) there
would not have been a downgrade.You also ignore the part about BO
spending significant;y more than anyone else, don't you?
