Bachmann: Funding ruined budget deal
PELLA | Minnesota congresswoman and potential GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says she’ll vote against the federal budget bill because it doesn’t remove funding for the president’s health care overhaul.
Mrs. Bachmann, a tea-party favorite, voted against a weeklong budget extension late Friday that averted a government shutdown.
Mrs. Bachman told a conservative Iowa crowd on Monday that she’ll also oppose the compromise that lawmakers are expected to vote on this week. She says “voters expected us to defund Obamacare.”
Mrs. Bachmann spoke as part of a series sponsored by the Family Leader. The conservative group is inviting prospective presidential candidates to Iowa, home to the nation’s first presidential caucuses.
New chief readies transition plan
The general taking the helm of the U.S. Army says that in two months he will lay out how the force must transform itself after a decade at war.
Gen. Martin Dempsey says the all-volunteer Army is in transition and must evolve and hone new expertise in order to be ready for adversaries the U.S. will face in 2020 and beyond.
Gen. Dempsey took over as chief of staff for the Army during a ceremony at Fort Myer in Northern Virginia on Monday. Gen. George Casey retired after four years in the top job and more than four decades in the service.
