Michele Bachmann is airing this new TV ad statewide in Iowa starting today:

Text of the ad, as provided by the campaign: 

I will not vote to increase the debt ceiling. It goes completely contrary to commonsense and how I grew up in Iowa. So here I am in Congress watching these people borrow more money that we don’t have so that my children can be further indebted. We have to deal with the economic reality and I have the will and I have the courage to see this through. I’m Michele Bachmann and I approve this message.
