Bachmann: Obama trying to scare on debt ceiling

Michele Bachmann ripped Barack Obama last night for employing scare tactics on the debt ceiling.

"President Obama voted 'no' on raising the debt ceiling when he was running for president.

Now he's trying to scare people, as you said, into thinking that if you don't raise the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion, that we'll default on our debt.

That's absolutely not true. We have more revenue coming in, all the time, and we can simply pay off the interest on the debt."
