US presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann in top form. Specifics, specifics, specifics….
From Fox News
After reports surfaced that the president stormed out of the debt talks Wednesday night, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) attributed it to the fact that the president has been used to getting his way in Washington and isn’t accustomed to any sort of push-back.
In reality, Bachmann said it’s the president who is out of step with the American people, as 69 percent of Americans are saying we shouldn’t raise the debt ceiling.
Bachmann called the president’s comments earlier this week that Social Security checks may not go out after August 2 if a deal isn’t reached “irresponsible.” She said that Social Security checks come out of the Social Security trust fund, which wouldn’t be impacted.
Bachmann also addressed news that Moody’s may downgrade the U.S. credit rating, saying, “We won’t get downgraded if we pay the interest on the debt. The president knows that, and Secretary Geithner knows that. We have sufficient money to pay the interest on the debt.”
