Bachmann not in sync with NDGov. John Hoeven and the North Dakota Republican Party are bringing Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., to town. Not only does Bachmann have little idea of what’s best for North Dakota, she contradicts herself at every turn.
A Politico article reported that the “Bachmann family farm, managed by her father-in-law until his recent death, received $251,000 in farm payments between 1995 and 2006.” So she can have farm payments, but vote against the farm bill? Not only is this hypocritical, but it shows that she doesn’t represent the best interests of family farmers in North Dakota, or in Minnesota for that matter.
Why is the North Dakota Republican Party bringing her to North Dakota? All that shows me is that they, too, are out of touch with the needs of North Dakotans, just like she is.
