Minnesota GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann says her support for the House Republican budget or the more conservative Republican Michele Bachmann, Budget, DebtStudy Conference plan comes with “asterisks,” Politico reports. Bachmann said on "Fox News Sunday" she was concerned Medicare cuts proposed in both budget plans — which she called “aspirational documents” — put an undue burden on America's seniors.

“I put asterisks on my support,” she said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I'm concerned about shifting the cost burden to seniors.”

“I’m wedded to the idea of efficiencies and savings," Bachmann added, when asked if she was wedded to the idea of vouchers for Medicare proposed in both plans.

“What I'm saying with that vote is that we have to make decision, we’re not saying every single decision in that bill — that aspirational document — will be the final result. What we are saying is that we have a conviction," Bachmann said.
