Washington (CNN) -– Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann took to the House floor Saturday to slam President Barack Obama on his position in the ongoing debt stalemate.
“Throughout this debate over guaranteeing insane never before seen in the history of this country levels of spending, President Obama has coolly stood on the sidelines, his arms crossed, very simply castigating Republicans for not giving him a $2.4 trillion blank check,” Bachmann said.
Minnesota Rep. Bachmann chastised the president for what she said was a lack of a solid debt plan.
“The only plan that the president has put forward is his February budget which in itself contained yet one more $1.5 trillion deficit,” Bachmann said. “The president has no plan. Only the Republicans have offered plans.”
Bachmann’s comments came as the House was preparing to vote on a plan proposed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.
