WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is giving mixed reviews on the tax compromise reached between Republican leaders and President Obama.

Bachmann released a statement saying, “I called for the current tax rates to be made permanent for all Americans, but it appears a compromise for a two-year extension will be the temporary solution.”

As for the unemployment benefits extension, Bachmann went on the say, “The President wants to extend unemployment benefits for another 13 months. Benefits are already at a historical length 99 weeks. The President hasn’t indicated any other spending offsets to pay for these benefits. We cannot overlook the consequences of another unfunded extension of unemployment benefits.”

The deal has also drawn criticism from Democrats that President Obama has caved to Republicans.
