DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is proposing ways to create jobs on her first visit to the leadoff caucus state since winning the state GOP straw poll earlier this month.

The Minnesota congresswoman is participating in a national tea party bus tour that is traveling from California to Florida. Bachmann met privately in the Des Moines area with business leaders Wednesday and joined the bus tour for an event in Des Moines.

Bachmann’s proposal would allow U.S. companies that have capital invested overseas to reinvest that money in the United States without having to pay a tax. She claims it could quickly inject billions in investment into the U.S. economy.

Since the Aug. 13 straw poll, Bachmann has campaigned heavily in South Carolina and Florida, early Southern primary states.

    Dear WCCHOE, Why do you keep promoting this woman? She took a distant third in Iowa. It appears you are only stirring the pot and trying to get people all whipped up for the real candidate, whoever that will happen to be.

    There is no way on Earth that a tea partier candidate will win the WH.

    Soon kids will pledge obedience to the corporations in grade school and made to assemble parts,do drilling and other tasks for the priveledge of learning a skill.In essence getting the job done for FREE for employers rather than even pay the pennies on a dollar for foriegn workers! Just think of all the left over money for CEO’s and political donations to the GOP! Of course then there is the soylent green and Logans run alternatives for us adults! But Michele and the elephant people are just so refreshingly greedy and nasty, I just love them! Plus no more worries about social security,they’ll make sure you don’t live that long!

    Why has she waited until now to worry about the unemployed in Minnesota, or anywhere else?
