I am so happy we have Michele!

She seems to be one of the few who are really on top of things:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has introduced legislation that would "bar the dollar from being replace by any foreign currency." A statement from Bachmann's website:

“Yesterday, during a Financial Services Committee hearing, I asked Secretary Geithner if he would denounce efforts to move towards a global currency and he answered unequivocally that he would," said Bachmann. "And President Obama gave the nation the same assurances. But just a day later, Secretary Geithner has left the option on the table. I want to know which it is. The American people deserve to know."

On Monday, Geithner and Bernanke both rejected the idea of a global currency in Congressional testimony. But in remarks to the Council on Foreign Relations yesterday, Geithner indicated he was open to the idea.

Bachmann is one of the few who will actually step up and ask Obama and Geithner, in effect, "What have you been smoking?!?"

One of the few voice of reason these days in the whole wilderness that is now Washington, D.C., and I'm proud to call her my congresswoman! (Youtube h/t LFR)
