U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is at it again. She’s all over the TV talking about being against government waste. But wait, She was a top 60 spenders of the $45 million in taxpayer-funded mailings, phone calls and electronic messaging that came from Washington last year.

What does she take the voters for? I am not for wasteful spending of any sort, but her outright condemning of a government spending, which she has used so freely, is just another example of her hypocrisy. Maybe today we will see a round of "I never said they were always bad" type media from her.

Franking does play a role in getting information out to constituents. When used correctly, those monies will help people learn or what is going on and give useful information. I am always bemused when a member leads the fiscal conservative charge and spends this kind of governement money telling people. Maybe you should have checked to see who’s paying for those stamps.
