Rep. Michele Bachmann: If You Don’t Work, You Don’t Eat
GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann promised to significantly lower funding to social safety net programs during a speech at the Family Research Council this morning, going so far as to suggest that people who can’t work should not eat.
“Our nation needs to stop doing for people what they can and should do for themselves,” she said. “Self reliance means, if anyone will not work, neither should he eat.”
Bachmann also reiterated her opposition to same-sex marriage and promised to push for a federal amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.”
