Michele Bachmann
Members of the House of Representatives had a no-brainer in front of them today - they should have voted “NO” to raise our debt limit as a nation by $1.9 trillion to a whopping $14 trillion. Instead of looking at ways to restrain their spending - like most Americans are doing right now - Congress has decided to saddle more federal debt to the backs of American workers. My constituents are strapped enough as it is and that's why I voted no on this irresponsible measure. A vote to raise the national debt limit without significantly reigning in spending is Washington at its worst.
