As well she should

(Via the Drudge Report)

Michelle Bachmann is not backing off:

The House Tea Party Caucus founder said, "I don't take back my statement on gangster government," a phrase she used at a tea party gathering in April. "I think that there have been actions that have been taken by this government that I think are corrupt."

I think she's underselling the level of corruption in the Federal government. Until we admit to ourselves the decades of corruption (remember Eisenhower's "military-industrial complex"?) in our government and dedicate ourselves to rooting it out, not only at the Federal but also at the state and local levels, we're going to see things get worse, not better.

Don't stand for window-dressing reforms. Settle for nothing less than a true fix.
