Bachmann co-sponsors first bill-- a constitutional amendment

Michele Bachmann's first official action in Congress was to sign on as one of 107 co-sponsors to H. Res. 1, or the "balanced budget amendment."

It was referred to the House Judiciary Committee, where it will most likely die a slow and painful death under the watchful guidance of new chairman John Conyers.

There is something ironic about the fact that Bachmann's first bill was a constitutional amendment. Do you think she understands the irony?


"Do you think she understands the irony?"

Of course not.

"I never wanted to amend the constitution."

-Sen Michele Bachmann, Calling in to Tom Barnard, May 12, 2005.

Ha! Good quote.
