Outgoing Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann thinks President Barack Obama deserves what she called a "spanking," and she knows just how Congress ought to give it to him.
“He has a perpetual magic wand, and nobody’s given him a spanking yet and taken it out of his hand,” Bachmann told WND.com in an interview that focused on opposing the latest effort to overhaul the nation's immigration system. "That's what Congress needs to do. Give the president a major wake-up call. And the way we spank the president is we do it through the checkbook. We're the ones who say, no, you can't have the money."
Bachmann, who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2012 and announced in May that she would not seek re-election to the House, argued that Congress should be more forceful in wielding its constitutional power of the purse to push back against the president.
"What's wrong with us?" Bachmann added. "What is wrong with us that we would give the president 10 cents to fund Obamacare?”
