Here is a statement issued by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) press office….

Washington, Apr 9 – Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) issued the following statement after voting against the latest Continuing Resolution (CR) that was brought before the House of Representatives today:

“The negotiations which led up to this vote reaffirmed a simple truth: our troops should not be used as pawns in political negotiations. I am planning to introduce legislation so that our men and women in uniform are never again in the situation of wondering whether or not they will receive a paycheck in the event of a government shutdown. If we reach another impasse like we did this week, our active duty military and their families must know that their paychecks are secure.

“The deal that was reached tonight is a disappointment for me and for millions of Americans who expected $100 billion in cuts, who wanted to make sure their tax dollars stopped flowing to the nation’s largest abortion provider, and who wanted us to defund ObamaCare. Instead, we’ve been asked to settle for $39 billion in cuts, even as we continue to fund Planned Parenthood and the implementation of ObamaCare. Sadly, we’re missing the mandate given us by voters last November, and for that reason I voted against the Continuing Resolution.”

  1. I personally would double-check anything that Bachmann says considering that she sometimes pulls figures and statements out of thin air. As I commented today on another blog that tells us she should be the next President and far better than the incumbent, I said “that Bachmann is very quick at throwing unsubstantiated and groundless statements because either it sounded exciting, her staffers are idiots (thus her leadership quality is in question already) or her support for the fringe is so deep that she reads gossip from fringe bloggers. Either way she thinks that the Obama Administration has only released one drilling permit when in fact there was 200, add to that she had no idea about healthcare funding and added a decade old bipartisan supported 40 billion dollar source as being from the current Administration – and thus those same choices of her staff and leadership come to question. She also wildly added 13 per cent to the national debt as belonging to Pelosi. Why is that?”.

    When what one says in the most important arena of the nation basic errors one, when she represents and heavily relies on the support of frankly speaking a fringe, we know one thing for certain – that the American people do not chose them as their Commander & Chief. Give her credit for what she had done, that she is strong in her views, and that someone who can help foster 24 or so children is something to be praiseworthy, and leave it at that.
