Bachmann warns Obama of becoming dictator

Michele Bachmann tells CNN that if Barack Obama uses the 14th Amendment to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, he'd, effectively, be acting as a dictator.

"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.

There would be no reason for Congress to even come into Washington, D.C."
