Bachmann misunderstands extension of unemployment benefits

The Huffington Post has a surprisingly balanced look at this. The widely derided tax deal would extend benefits up TO 99 weeks. Bachmann told MinnPost that she opposes it because it would extend the benefits BY 99 weeks, giving recipients a total of three years. We are forced to assume that she hasn’t bothered sitting down and reading the thing well enough to understand it, since she was going to vote against it either way.

As Comedy Central pointed out, this means Bachmann is literally against the IDEA of helping out working-class people in a bind. While simultaneously borrowing to cut taxes on the rich. While simultaneously pretending to be a follower of Jesus Christ. While simultaneously pretending she gives a damn about deficits.
