Quote of the Day: The Republican Agenda


From Michele Bachmann (R–Crazytown), speaking to the GOP Youth Convention about what Republicans should do if they gain control of Congress in November:

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.

Subpoena, baby, subpoena! I’m pretty sure there’s some dirt to be found in Michelle Obama’s White House garden or Larry Summers’ abuse of his government Diet Coke privileges. Steve Benen has more.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
