    Thats not ideology. Thats simple greed and selfishness.
    Is it not possible that she wants to eliminate subsidies for everyone?

    I've seen a few of those interpretations and they appear to be written by Leftist hillbillies.

    then read her words
    Just a year later, however, Bachmann wrote to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, praising the federal government for helping prop up the prices of pig products and dairy by directly buying the commodities, a move that benefited her constituents.

    "I would encourage you to take any additional steps necessary to prevent further deterioration of these critical industries, such as making additional commodity purchases,"
    she wrote on Oct. 5, 2009.

    So, let me see if I got this straight, she got some "subsidies" that when push came to shove, she voted to end funding for. Wouldnt that be the definition of putting your money where your mouth is?

    Second, DU and McClatchy?...well I guess the LA Times is nominally better anyways.

    let's see what resulted when she put pen to paper in the letter to the federal dept of agriculture:
    "I would encourage you to take any additional steps necessary to prevent further deterioration of these critical industries, such as making additional commodity purchases,"
    sounds like someone who wants more federal subsidies
    tell me why i am wrong to believe that

    Wouldn't she be doing a disservice to her constituents if she refused monies which were available for her state as well as all states? The people of Minnesota would be justifiably angry about that.

    For that idea alone she deserves to be President.

    No it's the definition of "hypocrisy".
