Strib: Bachmann’s anti-tax rally cost taxpayers $13,600

The Star-Tribune reported this April 14. The rally in question was in November and opposed the health care bill. Bachmann and three other lawmakers split the bill using their congressional member allowances.

Various experts in the article said this isn’t illegal. And frankly, we don’t exactly mind. We just think it’s highly ironic for a bunch of people who claim to hate big government and taxes. (And who, until a Democrat got elected, thought protests were un-American.) Of course, all tea party rallies everywhere use public roads, public spaces, crowd control by law enforcement and other government resources supported by taxes.
