Michele Backmann Stated that the president will not tell you 70 cents of every dollar goes to benefit bureaucrats. Of course he won’t, because it is not true. Obama leaves distortions and false statements to the Tea Party.
Medicaid Doctors cut their fees and their own incomes to accept a lower Medicaid rate. Landlords cut their rent charges to accept housing subsidies as full payment. They receive payment directly from the government for providing services to the poor. That accounts for the true statement that 70 cents of every dollar goes to those who serve the poor.
Backmann falsely interprets “those who serve the poor” as meaning Bureaucrats. Michele Backmann again shows her gross ignorance by her false inflammatory rhetoric and shameless grandstanding that further poisons the dialog preventing reasonable debate.
These types of statements from Michele do qualify her as a great Tea Party spokesman.
