Michelle Bachman’s Inconsistent use of the Federal Government

Bachman wants to turn abortion decisions over to the states, but thinks marriage needs to be defined at the federal level. Doesn’t Bachman understand that a true conservative would stay the heck out of both issues? How can Bachman honestly believe that she knows what’s best for every single American on these personal issues?

Apparently, she disagrees with the Bush Administration on education policy. Bush has increased the federal government’s role in education through unfunded mandates. Bachman seems to prefer non-funded non-mandates, although I find it hard to believe that she wouldn’t want some federally mandated anti-science in the classroom.

Bachmann supports constitutional amendments to balance the federal budget, to define marriage, and to leave abortion law up to the states. To save money, she would abolish the federal Education Department.
