Bachmann: Promises, Promises

Michele Bachmann
Tea Party member Michele Bachmann offered remarks after last night's State of the Union address by President Obama. She characterized policymaking by Obama since he took office two years agos as an "Unprecedented explosion of government spending and debt." Bachmann also pointed to the implementation of Obamacare as more of the same saying, "In the end, unless we fully repeal ObamaCare, a nation that currently enjoys the world's best healthcare may be forced to rely on government-run coverage that will have a devastating impact on our national debt for generations to come." Clearly Bachmann was not impressed with the efficacy of the president's ideas for investment adding, "For two years President Obama made promises just like the ones we heard him make tonight. Yet still we have high unemployment, devalued housing prices and the cost of gasoline is skyrocketing." Bachmann managed to find optimism in the sea of debt. "I believe that we are in the early days of a history-making turn. ... We believe in lower taxes, a limited view of government and the exceptionalism of America. And I believe America is the indispensable nation. Just the creation of this nation was a miracle. Who's to say that we can't see a miracle again?" Bachmann said. Bachmann did not mention her Tea Party affiliation during her response.

Government is not an investor. Government is ONLY a consumer. The government has no money of its own, only what it coerces from the people. And in between the taking and spending, govenrment syphons off hugh amounts of money for people who generate/produce absolutely nothing.
