Even with the Balanced Budget Amendment thrown in the Boehner plan, Michele Bachmann is giving no sign that there is any possibility she will switch her vote to ‘yes.’
“The President isn’t fooling anyone. He wants this increase so he can continue to waste taxpayer dollars on his failed economic policies,” Bachmann said in a statement released this afternoon. “Someone has to say stop. Someone has to say no to all of the massive spending and debt this President continues to give us. I will.”
She did not mention Boehner in the statement, focusing entirely on President Obama’s remarks this morning.
“His definition of compromise is to have everyone agree with him that we should raise the debt limit, increase spending and increase taxes, but he is unwilling to provide the leadership to reach any agreement. The President asked the American people to call their members of Congress, he should be the one on the phone calling them to make a deal,” Bachmann said.
