Bachmann Says ‘No’ to Tax Cuts, Dancing With The Stars [AUDIO]
WASHINGTON, D.C. - It's likely Congress and President Barack Obama will work out an extension of the two-percent payroll tax cut through the end of this year. However, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she will be voting no on the plan.
She says Speaker of the House John Boehner and other Republicans are being forced to go along with it.
Besides the payroll tax cut, the bill would also extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and block a 27 percent cut in reimbursements for doctors who treat Medicare patients.
The legislation would cost roughly $150 billion. Final Congressional approval could come by Friday.
On GOP Presidential Race:
The Republican race for the Presidential nomination is still up in the air. And, Bachmann says she's still not ready to endorse any of the remaining candidates.
Bachmann says she reserves the right to endorse one of the candidates in the future. After winning three contests last week, Rick Santorum is running even with Mitt Romney in national polls.
On Dancing With The Stars Rumor:
You won't be seeing Bachmann dancing the pasodoble any time soon. Bachmann says there's there's no truth to the rumor that she's been invited to be on the ABC TV show "Dancing With The Stars".
Bachmann says her focus remains getting re-elected to her seat in the Sixth Congressional District.
