Bachmann on CNN this morning


President Obama would be effectively a "dictator" if he invoked the 14th amendment to the Constitution to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann said Thursday.

"Congress has the power to lay and collect taxes. It's Congress that does the spending, The president is prohibited to do that. If he had the power to do that he would effectively be a dictator."
