Michele Bachmann is just the latest example of the damage done by the Reagan doctrine that government is the problem, not the solution. I'm afrain we will never recover from the legacy of Ronald Reagan. At least, Seder tries to expose Bachmann's and her party's desire for a scapegoat: Once again, it's illegal aliens that force the need for big government that is taking away your hard-earned dollars. What we need here in America is to give lots more money to the already rich, because with all that money, just think of all the jobs those wealthy patriots will create for other real Americans like you and me. Why we'll be able to eliminate unemployment altogether if only government would stay out of it. You tell it, Michele! Sorry for the sarcasm. She never fails to get me going.
