Michele Bachmann showed her typically complete detachment from reality and ability to spout utter nonsense as long as it will make her audience afraid during a talk to college students affiliated with the Eagle Forum over the weekend. She told them that immigration reform would destroy their future.
“If you think taxes are high now,” Bachmann warned, “get ready! This impacts you. This means you don’t have a job. This means you don’t have benefit packages. This means you don’t have a future and a hope.”
Except that the CBO says quite the opposite, that it would boost the economy and increase federal revenue. But that’s reality, something Bachmann hasn’t been anywhere near for years. And the tone of this cracks me up. It’s like she’s reading a scary children’s book to 5 year olds.
