Bachmann Wants The Government To Go On A Diet

Michele Bachmann made an appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s Factor last night and she argued against raising the debt ceiling. Bachmann said, “The fact is we have sufficient revenue coming in to pay off the interest on the debt. We don’t have to default. We have a great bill that’s being put forward by Steve King of Iowa. It would combine paying off the interest on the debt first with paying the salaries for our brave men and women in the military. We deal with the must-haves like Social Security and Medicare, and then it’s tough love. I agree, it would be very sacrificial, but the one thing that we can’t do, Bill, is add another $2.4 trillion to the debt.” Bachmann suggested, “Government hasn’t gone on a diet. It’s private business that’s gone on a diet. It’s time to have tough love…It’s the federal government that needs to go on a diet.” The only way she would agree to raise the debt ceiling would be if they defund the health care law, ObamaCare. “They’d have to cut an enormous amount, including they would have to defund ObamaCare. Because that’s the largest entitlement in the history of the country,” according to Bachmann.
