Michele Bachmann is not a fan of the agreement that will slice $38.5 billion in spending, calling it a "disappointment."

After the deal was struck Friday night, Bachmann voted against a stopgap meaure that will keep the federal government operating until final details in the budget deal can be hammered out, Politico reports.
