Is Michele Bachmann Secretly A Millionaire?
Business Insider ^ | 08/17/2011 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 08/17/2011 10:05:54 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

2012 presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus could be worth up to $2.8 million, but owe as much as $750,000 in outstanding loans, according to 2010 financial disclosure documents filed late last week.

The filings reveal that the Bachmann's largest assets are her husband's Christian psychotherapy clinic — which is worth at least $600,000 and generated as much as $100,000 in gross income in 2010— and the Bachmann Family Farm, valued between $500,000 and $1 million.*

Bachmann has said that she and her husband "have never received a dime from the farm," which received nearly $260,000 in federal agriculture subsidies between 1995 and 2008. According to the filings, however, the Bachmanns earned between $5,000 and $15,000 in income from the farm in 2010.

Yeah, she is a millionaire!!!!

Burn her! Burn Her! Burn Her!!!!

Millionaire is becomming the new codeword for “Witch” in the 21st century.

While “Billionaire” especially if used to describe soemone like George Soros or Bill Gates always seesm to be in the same sentence as the word “Philantropist” and is looked upon in a completely and unquestionably postive manner.

It would be more shocking if Barry was - his only job being a community organizer and 150 present votes.

Bachmann is dirt poor compared to Nancy Pelosi.

Bachmann is an evil money hoarding millionaire sucking up as much wealth as she can like a vacuum cleaner while pelosi is compassionate millionaire who is only a money conduit to the poor and needy.

See the difference? {;>/

OMG her husband’s clinic GROSSED 100 Gs. What was the NET 25Gs or even 50G? What a PLUTOCRAT, off with their heads.

God, forgive me for hating the media so much but I cannot help myself.

Pelosi, Kohl, Lieberman, Feinstein, KERRY, the list of Democrat multi-millionaires includes almost all of them in the Congress. It is harder to find a Democrat who ISN”T a millionaire. Hypocrites all.

BusinessInsider and little gracie needs a wake up call - we aren’t buying into their bias articles.

Farm...which received nearly $260,000 in federal agriculture subsidies between 1995 and 2008.

I love this one! Why stop at 1995? They should go back to like 1965 and make it appear like the farm got BIG subsidies! Also, Bachmanns farm was her HUSBANDS FATHERS farm. Not Micheles. Paul Bachmann died in 2009. So Michele wasnt the "owner" in 1995 to 2008, other than a minority share in the farm since 2001.

She’s in Congress, right?

And Congress critters aren’t subject to insider trading laws.

So as reported on CNBC, Congress members typically have “market crushing” returns on their investments.

That’s why people spend millions to get a job that pays thousands.

And still we cannot even get Hawaii to respond to a Federal Subpoena on Obama’s Birth Certificate. We have not yet found out why both Obamas have lost their license to practice law .

I really would like to see some of the President's University transcripts, only to verify his and his supporters claims that he is transcendent genius of unprecedented intellectual prowess.

Lets throw a little light on credentials of the “Light Bringer”.

And at least a solid portion of their wealth, if not all of it in some cases, is due to government corruption and under-the-table dealings with lobbyists for rich capitalist corporations. Hypocrites squared and cubed.

Between this and the Tea Party hit piece, I think the White House just found Carney’s replacement as press secretary: Grace Wyler from the Business Insider.

I just despise this media. I saw the crawl on CNN that she was worth 2+million. Hey MSM who really owned Obamas Chicago house? Did he get a deal on that? Resko........ He is worth 4 million as of last income tax they showed the public.
