Bachmann to Torpedo Tax Cuts and Unemployment Extension
Michelle Bachmann needs to be told a little story about Marie Antoinette by her own political party that she does not want to say no to everything. The Tea Party queen is telling the long term unemployed and the mega boo-coo buck tax break buddies of George W. Bush to just eat cake. Her latest comments and intentions are intended to torpedo the GOP battle cruiser on extending Bush era tax cuts for the mega rich and simply harpoon the long term unemployed dingy of President Obama. Ergo she is throwing a tantrum because she can't have her cake and eat it too.
A House Tea Party leader said Monday that GOP lawmakers might vote down an extension of tax cuts if it's tied to an extension in unemployment aid.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus, said Republicans could balk at voting to extend all the tax cuts for two years if it's tied to a long-term extension of jobless benefits.
"I don't know that Republicans would necessarily go along with that vote. That would be a very hard vote to take," Bachmann said on conservative talker Sean Hannity's radio show on Monday.

Everyone knows that when you teach a two or three year old how to say no that they will say it nonstop even if they really mean yes. The baby wants the juice bottle but loves to say no. The baby wants to watch their favorite cartoon but loves to say no. The baby loves its crackers but loves saying no even more. That is what happens when a baby learns to say no. And every parent knows that the process of educating a baby on what they want or do not want is a long process of yes and no.
Let the “Party of No” aka GOP, proudly stand behind the batshit looney Michelle Bachmann on saying NO to extending long term unemployment benefits and also saying NO to extending Bush era tax cuts for the top 2% of income earners in America simply because she can say no. She isn’t offering any alternative plan other than saying no. Isn’t it refreshing to hear in a nation that is depending on the mega rich to create jobs and the unemployed depending on funds to get past one of the worst economic hardships since the great depression that someone is intent on just saying screw you all?
Maybe all that we need to do for little miss Michelle is rephrase the questions so that even a two year old will understand that No means yes?
