If she's so hateful of gvt., why doesn't she give back the $250,000 she took for her farm? Guess it was OK for the tax-payers to help her out. More of the same ol garbage...do as a I say, not as I do.
Corporations, "gentleman farmers", businesses all get help from the gvt....what exactly is private? I can remember reading how we paid for cigarette companies to advertise overseas! Paid for McDonalds to advertise overseas. And I rememebr Rep. Dana Rorbacher railing on the floor of the House about how the city of Long Beach California's tax-payers had just paid for the overhaul of the Long Beach docks in order to facilitate the moving of companies and American jobs obverseas! He was livid.
I think they are angry because this time the federal gvt. will be helping normal working people, not the wealthy, or corporations, but just normal people.
Privitization has been the problem. imo. They make profits on things people need to survive. Which means--no money, no survive. That is unconscionable.

FYI, Habee, Al Franken is not only a funny comedian but will also be a good senator. He is very bright, a talented comedian and writer who is knowledgeable about public policy issues. Mentioning him in the same breath as Michele Bachman is a travesty. Bachman is crazy. Franken has a sense of humor but is serious about his job as a senator and perfectly sane.
A failed comedian? Ever watched Saturday Night Live?
Franken and Davis were recruited as two of the original writers (and occasional performers) on Saturday Night Live from 1975 to 1980 and again from 1985 to 1995, although in the latter case only Franken returned as a performer, while Davis usually stayed behind the camera. (From Wikipedia.)
