GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) who’s just so fond of accusing the Obama administration of foisting socialism on poor unwilling Americans and has denounced the Medicaid program for swelling the “welfare rolls,” seems have no problem pocketing money from Government run programs.
Michele Bachmann’s husband \ has been collecting annual Medicaid payments totaling over $160,000 for the treatment of patients at his ” mental health clinic”
When asked about about it Bachmann replied that it was “one-time training money that came from the federal government. And it certainly didn’t help our clinic. My husband and I did not get the money, it was mental health training money that went to the employees.” But state records show that Bachmann & Associates has been collecting payments under the Minnesota’s Medicaid program every year for the past six years.
Also, federal agricultural subsidies and found that the Bachmann family farm, received $251,000 in farm payments between 1995 and 2006.
Michele Bachmann has an estimated net worth of $1.05 million as of 2011, not counting her husbands holdings.
I expect Michele Bachmann wil be returning the $410,000.00 to the Goverment now that the country is broke. (We shouldn;t hold our breath on that one)
