Bachmann: Subpoenas and Hearings Are Coming in 2011

According to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., the House Republicans [if they win control of the House of Representatives this fall] should exercise their power to subpoena and hold continuous hearings.

Speaking to a gathering for the GOP Youth Convention on July 22 in Washington, D.C., she emphasized this point.

“Oh, I think that’s all we should do,” Bachmann said. “I think that all we should do is issue subpoenas and have one hearing after another. And expose all the nonsense that is going on. And it’s very important when we come back that we have constitutional conservative leadership because the American people’s patience is about this big.”

“This is the year — this is it,” Bachmann continued. “All of our chips are on November. If we don’t get it back and then starve the beast — the House, we have the power of the purse — so we can starve ObamaCare. We don’t have to fund any of these programs and that’s exactly what we need to do — defund all of this nonsense and then unwind it.”

One-year retrospective: One year ago today, I reported that the National Republican Congressional Committee added U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann to its list of most vulnerable incumbents for 2010 in the NRCC’s “Patriot Program,” while the Swing State Project rated Bachmann as being in “real danger” of losing her seat in the next election. [She has since enjoyed a dramatic reversal of fortune.] I also noted that a survey of 25 nations conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center in spring 2009 found that positive public attitudes toward the United States had surged in many parts of the world since President Barack Obama’s election, to levels not seen since before President George W. Bush took office in 2001.

On the Campaign Trail: Day 10

Two-year retrospective: Two years ago today, on the tenth day of my 2008 campaign against incumbent U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann for the Republican nomination in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District, I met with residents on Little Rock Lake, near Rice in Benton County, to learn about the lake’s persistent water quality problems.
