Rep. Michele Bachmann proposes a tax code that would encourage “family formation.”
Michele Bachmann…that’s all I really have to say. But I will continue.
The batshit crazy (Tea Party Queen) United States Representative is proposing a tax system that would encourage “family formation.” Bachmann wants to give tax credits and/or lower tax rates to parents who are married as opposed to those who are single. I highly doubt it’s even that cut and dry. Bachmann’s past statements on gays and lesbians, makes me believe the tax breaks would only be for heterosexual couples.
Last time I checked, single parents have a more difficult time financially taking care of a child than people who are married. But that doesn’t matter to Michele Bachmann because single parents are immoral in her eyes and must be punished. I thought the Republican party (and the Tea Party) wanted less government control.
Apparently government control is bad when it does things like regulate businesses, keep our food and products safe, and try to keep corporations from screwing individuals. But it’s great when it controls your private life. The Right Wing’s plan is simple. You will marry who they tell you to marry, have sex in the manner they tell you to, and reproduce according to their plan. Resistance is futile!!!
What about the widows of soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan? Do they count? Hey Michele, maybe we can use all that money we’ll be taking away from poor single parents trying to feed their children, and use it to give tax breaks for the rich. I bet you would just love that. Doesn’t encouraging “family formation” through tax credit cripple the sanctity of marriage? I thought your definition of marriage was a holy union between a man and a woman, who make a promise to one another and to God based on love. This proposal would only encourage people to marry for financial reasons.
I’m having a hard time figuring out who’s more insane. Michele Bachmann or the people who voted for her.
