12. Michele Bachmann, on a zero-percent tax rate
Flip-flopping has never been specific to Michele Bachmann; plenty of others have been paving the way for ages. That said, they generally seem to wait longer than, well, under a minute to counter their original stance. At the Orlando debate this past September, Bachmann called for a zero-percent tax rate, stating the following:
"I think you earned every dollar, you should get to keep every dollar that you earn. That's your money, that's not the government's money."
Hear hear! But wait, oop, there's more:
"Obviously we have to give money back to the government so we that can run the government, but we have to maintain a completely different mindset."
Wait, what about the first part?
