Bachmann to give her own rebuttal to SOTU through Tea Party Express
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will give her own rebuttal to President Obama’s State of The Union Tuesday, broadcast by the Tea Party Express.
“There are two very exciting developments I wanted to share with you today, friends,” reads the fundraising e-mail sent out by the Tea Party Express Friday morning. “Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has confirmed with us that she will broadcast her response to Barack Obama’s State Of The Union address this Tuesday.”
The rebuttal — separate from her colleague, Paul Ryan‘s — seems to be one more way Bachmann alienates House GOP leadership: She tried to jump in front of Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Tex.) for the House GOP conference chair only to withdraw, she voted against the popular tax cut deal along with 35 other Republicans and Bachmann has been vocal about opposing a raise to the debt ceiling.
