We have a winner in the GOP hypocrisy stakes for government handouts

A number of Republican incumbents and candidates have or still benefit from Government Agricultural Subsidies despite wanting to shrink government and spending far lower than is either reasonable or possible. Michelle Bachmann racked up $250,000 in subsidies. The clear winner in the GOP hypocrisy race (personal financial gain division) GOP House candidate in Missouri Vicky Hartzler has received $774,345 in the past 10 years.

On a conservative radio show she said "We just want the government to leave us alone here in Missouri’s 4th." She hasn't exempted herself from her 'no Federal government' promise but I am sure she will do the right thing if elected.
