Not strictly a Bachmann thing…

…but we thought it was about time that someone compared dishonest GOP claims about various reform bills being “socialist” to the platforms of actual socialists. The Nation to the rescue! The piece does specifically mention that Bachmann claims financial reform will create a “pay czar” who will dictate what bank tellers in Peoria will be paid. It is unclear what provision of the bill she’s referring to there, or even if she’s referring to bill at all rather than pulling claims out of her butt and seeing what people will believe. We happen to read about this bill a lot and have never seen the phrase “pay czar” used.
