Courageous Bachmann says no

Michele Bachmann continues to impress voters with her courageous stances against Barack Obama and those who support him.

Bachmann is flying from a campaign stop in Iowa to Washington today to oppose the new debt ceiling plan.

She and some of the more Conservative members of the House may be able to hold the line and to scrap this brokered deal.

Her own statement says it quite eloquently.

"Mr. President, I'm not sure what voice you're listening to, but I can assure you that the voice of the American people wasn't the voice that compelled Washington to act," she said in a statement after the president announced a deal with congressional leaders Sunday night. "It was you that got us into this mess, and it was you who wanted a $2.4 trillion blank check to get you through the election."

"This isn't the deal the American people 'preferred' either, Mr. President," Bachmann said in her response. "Someone has to say 'no.' I will."
