Bachus bests Bachmann: Says 17 House members are socialists


Alabama Republican Rep. Spencer Bachus is taking the ball from Rep. Michele Bachmann and running with it. Bachmann, who infamously declared last October that she believes some members of Congress hold “anti-American views,” couldn’t come up with what Bachus can: a number for how many “socialists” there are in the U.S. House of Representatives. Yesterday, he put the figure at 17, but didn’t provide a list of names. Bachus’ revelation, reports Fox News, comes on the heels of a Rasmussen poll that finds a scant 53 percent of Americans prefer capitalism over socialism.
