LAS VEGAS (AP) — Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says when it comes to the tax code, “everyone should pay something.”

Bachmann says during a Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas that she wants to encourage an “economic miracle” that came about under President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.

But she says every American should pay some amount in taxes “even if it’s a dollar.”

Bachmann reiterated her calls to repeal a health care plan pushed under President Barack Obama and tighter regulations on the financial industry.

    “everyone should pay something.” Really? Ms Bachmann would literally deprive food from the mouths of children of poverty stricken parents? For what? To prosecute the wars? To give subsidies to the richest corporations the world has ever seen? My God!

      Even if it’s just a dollar.. I guess that the whole dollar thing just ticks you off.. If youi don’t have any “skin in the game” you shouldn’t comment on how your tax dollars are spent either??
