Only Bachmann’s family has benefitted over the very thing she disdains: federal subsidiaries.

The Los Angeles Times first reported that her family farm received nearly $260,000 in farm subsidiaries.

Then it surfaced that her husband’s mental health clinic received $24,000 in federal and state funds. When asked about it, Bachmann said it was one-time training money that went to the employees, not her or her husband.

Now, a new report states that the one-time sum was not the only government aid the clinic received. The company has received annual payments from Medicaid totaling over $137,000.
