Can someone explain to me how this makes us a nanny state?

It doesn't. Bachmann is just bugfuck crazy.

re: #1 Lidane

It makes my head hurt trying to understand ANYTHING Michele Bachmann says.

"I've given birth to five babies and I breast-fed every single one," Bachmann said. "To think that government has to go out and buy my breast pump. ... That's the new definition of a nanny state..."

I hope she wasn't one of the crazy fundies that breast feeds until her kids are old enough to ride a bicycle, like some of the ones I've seen propping some 3'0" kid on their lap, yammering about how mothers that don't care aren't breast feeding their kids long enough, as their eyes roll back in bliss.

Creepy. Super creepy in public places. Jerking off in the bushes kinda creepy.

Other than that, raising kids is damned expensive, and I'm all for tax breaks related to their care and feeding. This isn't about free breast pumps, it's about reimbursing costs involved and lessening the tax burden on parents.

But I suppose dangling one kid after another from your boob is just that much more folksy. Natch-rul.

Speaking of, when do all us Real American™ women we get our free post-breast feeding government funded boob jobs?

Isn't it interesting how the GOP just loooves tax cuts that primarily benefit millionares and billionares, but are openly hostile to tax breaks for ordinary people?

Besides the tax break for breast pumps, they are having a fit about the government mandating larger companies provide a private space for pumping.

It's simple.

Government is bad, therefore anything government does is bad.

Things like tax breaks for the wealthy don't count because it means government is no longer interfering with the natural order of the world. Government, a bad thing, is no longer affecting the wealthy. Which is a good thing.

If you start from the premise that all government everywhere for all time is evil the logic is simple.

Wrong, but simple.

And we're told that Bachmann is Palin if she were smart?

Doesn't exactly inspire much confidence, does it?

I try to be fair politically, it's not always easy but I do try. I mean really Bachmann makes some of hte most stupid criticisms you can get see. I guess I shouldn't expect much from someone who wants to have committees "investigating" unAmerican activitiy in Congress. How was this psycho even nominated much less elected.
