House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama are hailing Friday night's last-minute budget deal that averted a
government shutdown. But Republican Rep. 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. A final vote on the deal should come by the middle of next week. Bachmann says she also will vote against that.
“The deal that was reached tonight is a disappointment for me and for millions of Americans who expected $100 billion in cuts, who wanted to make sure their tax dollars stopped flowing to the nation’s largest abortion provider, and who wanted us to defund Obamacare," she said in a statement issued to the media.
