At Thursday night's Republican presidential debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) proposed the elimination of all taxes, but then added that the government did need some money to run.
"You earned every dollar, you should get to keep every dollar that you earned," the candidate said. "That's your money, that's not the government's money."
"Barack Obama seems to think that when earn money, it belongs to him and we're lucky just to keep a little bit of it. I don't think that at all. I think that when people make money, it's their money."
Bachmann added: "Obviously we need to give money back to the government so that we can run the government."
Yeah, those are called "taxes", Michele. But remember, Republicans are fiscally serious people with real plans for saving America's economy. In a real party, Bachmann would have been laughed off the stage for her idiocy and ignorance. As it stands right now, it's a forgettable gaffe because she's said much worse things and survived politically.
